Pros

Its a small sports car with a little zip to it.

Cons

If you hate i-VTEC

Love My Vixen — I love the car it has good suspension, and great looks. Has plenty of mods out for it and is pretty easy to work on. The interior is also quite good for a sports car and the interior lights are red which is pretty cool. And it also has no tractoion control which is cool. And gets great mileage 35 HWY MPG!

The performance and value

Cons

Front wheel drive

Well Worth The Price Tag — Great short throw shifter. Fast for a 4 cyl. Redlines at 8k RPMs! Hugs the road well. Great car for under 20k. When u hit the powerband it lunges forward. Loaded with all the options. Great everyday driver. Real sweet car.

Pros

Good gas mileage, great in traffic, strong motor takes years of abuse

Cons

Like a typical Honda, high revving = high HP numbers and LOW torque

75

Acura Rsx Type-s - Fun, Great Mileage, Reliable — A fun car to own and drive, great on gas, decent on performance, and has much more room on the inside with the fastback design than most any coupe with standard trunk around. Its a Honda, so build quality and reliability are integral.

6 Speed Manual, great gas milage, Vtech Engine for the extra power when you need it.

Cons

Takes premium gas only

My Rsxts Review =] — Overall- I love this car! Bought it used January 2008. Performance- with a 200horse I4 Vtech 6 speed manual it definately has some stomp when you want it. Build Quality- it's rock solid. hasn't needed any serious repairs. Appearence- it's been hit in parking lots twice, so there is some body damage. scheduled to have some body work done the first week of september 08. put 18s and some new tires on her on July 08. HIDs coming soon. Cost of Ownership- gas mileage is great. i do have to put premium in this car... but it goes about 400 miles on a tank. maintenance cost is very low. just regular oil changes. Fun Faction- the tight steering and 6 speed manual, makes this car very fun to drive! it's fully loaded with the bose stereo system and sun roof just make the acura RSX type S and all around great sports car.

Pros

Loved the power to weight ratio...a fun and practical car that still seats 4.

Cons

Transmission stinks. Nice feel, but breaks. Lots of service bulletins out but Honda still says there's no "official" problem. Had my 6 speed rebuild once under warranty when I had mine.

Most Fund Sport Coupe I Ever Owned — Great power for a small and affordable luxury compact. Great handling! Great engine!

Pros

Acceleration (especially V-Tech)

Cons

Expensive parts

45

Good Car For City Life — Overall was a Ok car. The acceleration was great, and you cant beat all the bells and whistled associated with owning an Acura. Was not impressed with durability. All expenses where usually with small parts, but they were expensive.

Not A Fan — always repairing something, too small for a family, when drive over bumps it feels & sounds like you are in a wreck, too low to the ground, this is too many words that im required to write and im really sick of talking about this car

Solid Daily Driver Quick For A Base Model The Type-s Would Be Nice — It's quick off the line, disc brakes all around make for quick stopping, pretty wide turning radius for a little car, its salvage and i have had no issues with it, costs have only come from routine maintenance and aftermarket parts, around 30 mpg unfortunately i have a wicked lead foot so i get less its about 40 bucks from e to full, i love it, it's a blast to drive.
