Acura Rsx — I own the Acura RSX for 5 years. I've enjoy riding this car so much, it has the sport look, power and not bad on gas. Impressive comfortable front seating. Fun, fun, fun. Low maintenance cost and reliable. Go get it, you wont regret it.

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.

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

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

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!

Crazy/sexy/smooth! — I love the look mine is black on black sporty & sexy just like me! Love that it comes w/ leather and Bose system standard but, the stereo system needs work and I'll be fixing that up soon w/ a GPS and DVD enabled stereo to spuce it up al lil. Other than the car is mad cute and I get looks every where I travel. Looks great under the hood too. I went to the lot looking for a smaller SUV it's just me a nd my son but, I drove away in this baby and, I don't regret it one bit!

Cons

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!

aftermarket parts for days

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.
