Pros

small but very roomy in the front seats, good handling, a fun car to
drive.

Cons

Different brakes than most newer acuras (at least ones ive driven),
they are not as touchy, back seat has very little leg room, hatchback is
kind of annoying since its not an actual trunk it has a handle like a
third door.
AND its a very expensive car to insure. its in the top 10 of most
expensive cars to insure.

Lower End Luxury, Fun To Drive. — I love my car. It was a great choice for a first car. I have been in one accident, and haven't had it fixed, but you can barely tell. Mine has a leather interior, automatic transmission(i would recommend manual tho), and a sunroof.

A Car With So Much Depth. — I got my RSX as a gift for my graduation, it was supposed to be a daily driver, but the way the car is built leads me to believe otherwise. It corners really well, and the build quality is up there.

Leather Seats ?! — Great car....Performance is like no other car for the price. However I paid for leather seats, but got plastic instead which are now cracking and ripping on the driver's seat. It's covered under warranty and the dealership is going to replace them....with WHAT may I ask ? Like I said, it's a great car but I consider this a major disappointment.

The Car Is Amazing Especially The Interior — RSX is a 2-dr hatchback coupe sold in base and higher-performance Type-S trim. 5-speed automatic transmissionsheavily bolstered front seats, and extra interior accents in chrome and faux titanium.
