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.

05 Rsx Type S — Give it up for Honda/Acura...One of there bests cars produced thats not a civic come on now, we got the NSX, the S2000, Integra, and now the sexy girl getting RSX. Fun car to drive on back roads with twists and turns, handling is good, leather interior is nice. It has good gas mileage and the maintenance is nice. Nothin more to say

I WANTED THE TYPE-S.  Struggles a bit going uphill, but I'm okay with it.

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.
