The handling in wet or dry weather is great along with the power and acceleration is outstanding. The maintenance so far is great, just a few oil changes,air filters, new front/back brakes, and all new tires, is all I've had to do, and all above was do it yourself except for the tires.


The cons is the 4-speed automatic, which allows for decreased gas mileage, but yet quicker acceleration. The back seats are a little small and the windows are a little slow going up.


Best Car For The Year — I love that it is paid for, easy to maintain, drives great for a 15 year old car, handles awesome in wet weather at any speed, dependable, fast, and sporty. I hate that the tranny is only a 4-speed, cause having a lead foot paired with that = Terrible Gas Mileage in the stop and go traffic, however on HWY it isn't too bad when Cruise Control is utilized.

rock-solid engine, modest styling


heated seats not standard


Modest Luxury. — I've owned mine for 2 years now and it's been great to me. Only normal required maintenance so far.

The heated seats were awesome especially when it's cold. A very user friendly car and you won't need a manual to operate it to it's fullest.
The power is good and it kicks you back when you step on it.


Acura should have built steering wheel controls for radio. Without stability control, sometimes you can feel the car sliding on the first few days of rain.
Would have preffered a less response time when you hit the gas.


Perfect Luxury For Small Money — I have owned the car for 2.5 years now. Greate ride but I have to upgrade because am gettnig bored.
