You will get an 8 year unlimited miles warranty on the engine. Many have had oil burning problems starting around 60,000 miles so Honda extended the warranty. If new you will get the regular warranty starting from date of purchase.
The CVT requires fluid changes but that is all CVTs. The 12V batteries don't last too long. Other than that, I'd say the cars are reliable and tend to get more mpg than the sticker says.
The resale value is not high. Getting a low starting price should help that.
