The US version again has a bigger, 1.8, engine than the two offered in the UK version.

The electric parking brake, are they a problem then? Are they not fitted to any other current Honda models?

Electronic parking brakes and disc rear brakes - Honda are really slipping (maybe literally) - IMHO electrical parking brake is a deal breaker for me,  I would never buy a car fitted with one - have heard too many bad things about them being unreliable in their release and a high maintenance item, electricity is not suitable for some things and a parking brake on a car is patently one of them..

I totally agree Culzean. One experience of electronic parking brakes was enough for me - it was on a Ford Focus C-max. The handbrake stuck on and wouldn't release, which was great fun with a queue of traffic behind. The worst part was the bill from the main dealer to replace the mechanism, which was the wrong side of 800 !!! NEVER AGAIN !!
