Great Ride — i never thought I would want to keep my car for any longer than I planned but this car and the amazing gas mileage has me thinking twice...but I still need a little more power. Oh well, time will tell

Great Sporty And Reliable Sedan — I've had the car for 10 years and always enjoyed driving it. Well controlled and comfortable highway ride. I was surprised at the great highway and city gas mileage. I think I got 30 mpg on the highway one time.

Really Smooth Ride And Comfortable — A great ride and low cost of ownership. Anyone that would buy one just make sure you look into the transmission recall before buying. I had mines replaced and the car has been a great joy to drive. Thanks for your interest

Pros

Looks and drives well after all these years

Cons

Transmission has been rebuilt. MPG is better than projected, but fuel costs are higher than I wish.

Faithful Old Friend — Bought it on Ebay 10 years ago. Now over 200,000 miles. Good power, handling, etc. it is an Acura after all. The need for premium and only 26 MPG is a little unfortunate these days. The latest Accords have more features and cost $500 less per year in gas.

Clean Title — Car is very sporty looking with extra trim package. Repair costs are reasonable and can be brought to most mechanics. Car handles very good with good accelaeration. Surprising large trunk space. The gold package on White Pearl color looks classy.

Pros

Loads of power when you need it.  Handling is very responsive especially in city traffic when you need to Zip here and Zip there.  All controls are within good distance, no fumbling to find the right button or switch.  Visibility while driving is great.  When the car is placed in reverse the right side mirror automatically adjust for better visibility.

Cons

The car sits low to the ground so getting in and out is difficult for older people.  The suspension is a little stiff creating a more rigid ride, however it hangs a curve like a go-cart.

Zip Zoom — This car is fun to drive. The acceleration and maneuverability of the car truly defines its sportiness. The leather, trim, fit and finish, all give you a sense of luxury. This is a well built car designed to go many safe and comfortable miles.
