Not bad but still looking for something better

Overall, I like this car and enjoy driving it but it's not perfect and I'm looking for something better.

Good points:
Comfortable, eye-catching, plenty of space for people and luggage, good handling.
Lots of electronic aids on board for the driver.

Not so good points:
CVT isn't a perfect match to the 1.0T engine and can be a bit erratic - much improved in Sport mode when the whole car seems to get its act together.
Amount of plastic panels on the car is a worry - will it just fall apart in an accident?
Poor quality paintwork with visible blemishes.
MPG is lower than expected but improves at motorway speeds on long journeys. You need a light foot on the throttle though.

Issues:
Aircon lost all the refrigerant due to a leaking/faulty high pressure filler line. This was replaced after 2 years under warranty but the car looks decidedly 2nd hand now that a lot of the plastic panels have been removed and the retaining clips left broken or missing altogether. Poor work by a major Honda dealership.
