Pros

This is a 5-speed manual transmission: the smoothest shifting car I have ever had, breaking and acceleration excellent, reliable, nice pick-up with 160 HP VTEC engine.

Cons

I do not have any cons about this car.

Great Car, Attractive And Smooth To Drive. — I needed a car because my car was stolen and stripped. I searched for an RSX because I saw it at the Milwaukee auto show when they first came out in 2002, stopped making them in 2006. and said right there, this is my next car! This is a 2005, has all the extras you would want on a car, beautiful color and body style. I love the design of the front and rear lights, I think they look cool. I have only driven this car about $5,000 miles, partially because I have another car, and partially because I have only had it about 14 months, and partially because I quit working about 12 months ago, so I no longer had a commute to work. There is nothing wrong with this car, everything works great, I have enjoyed driving it, felt safe in it and it was fun to drive to. I am only selling it because I have a Miata which is great in this warm climate and I can have the top down a lot. I have tried to keep both because I love both of them, but it is no longer practical. Therefore, I have made the decision to keep the convertible and sell the Acura.

Fast & Furious — I love my car! Its fast, sporty, handles great. Great on gas. Triptronic is great if you get bored while driving and like to drive standard. Would only trade my car if I had lots of money and could afford a Nissan Gt or something better!

A Well Built And Fun To Drive Best In Class Sport Compact — This car handles like it's on rails. The car has more than enough horsepower to do the job, especially for its light weight. This is the most fun I have ever had with a car. They are built quite solidly, in the year and a half I have owned mine it has not seen a single repair shop, and there are no indications it will need to in the future. It is a bit of a sports car, and it is targeted at young adult males, like myself, so if you are under 25, insurance will probably be hell. Also note, it requires premium fuel, so expect a few more bucks at the pump.

Type-s — This is the smoothest car I have ever driven. The transmission feels like silk. It is fast as hell and still can put down 30+ miles to the gallon if I don't drive it like a maniac. But what fun is there in that.

2005 Acura Rsx Type S — This is a great all around car. It is surprisingly spacious when needed, especially for luggage when you lower the rear seats. Its also very fun to drive when you hold out gears to over 8000 rpm. The gas mileage is also close to 30 mpg.

A Type-s Is So Nice — This is by far the funnest car I have ever driven! I am already a lead foot, and this car just increases that capability lol. Handles quite nice around the turns, is real quick on the roads, and is damn sexy! The mileage can be pretty good if you're not constantly speedy while also being in stop & go traffic. The interior is also just as nice as the exterior with the all black leather - black on black is the best.
