Pros

It is a Great Car to drive arrogant, or to go quick... the handling is great specially when driving fast, i love the premium feeling of the car that could be seen in the leather seats or in the A/C that works with a thermostat something nto that common in a sport car.

Cons

is a bit small, so it is hard to fit people.

Amazing Car. — In my last year with this car i found to be the most amazing car it looks amazing and it drives freat, is like that sport car you always desired. It is not the most powerful car but the DOC 2.0 VTEC engine is nice. so it is a great car to drive around and to have fun. The A/C is very cold (very important in Florida)

Love It! — Jan. 2014 Nothing can be said bad about this car, if you can find one - buy it! However, if you have kids or are looking for a smooth ride; this car is not for you. The back-seat is small and the car has sports suspension. Sept. 2014 I have had this RSX now for 8 months; the feel and handling appears to have gotten better over this time due to it getting broken in and used to my style of driving. The S-Type seems to cheer you on to high-revs and drives very well at high-speeds; keeping off of the throttle requires discipline. So far, I have required no major repairs. At 137k, (bought the car with a 112k) I have only had to replace the high-pressure power steering hose, due to a small leak - and I drive the crap out of this car! I still highly recommend this car; 6-speed is fun to drive and the car as a whole can take pretty much all you can throw at. Next update: 1.2 year mark.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Blue Collar Sports Car — I love so many things about my car such as; the power it produces for being a 4 cylinder, the front bucket leather seats may be my favorite feature, the gas mileage is also great, but overall my favorite thing is the cars reliability. What I wish it had; all wheel drive, power and memory seats, heated seats, slightly better handling. But 1 reason it gets great gas mileage is that the car is light compared to other vehicles with better handling therefore; I would compromise a little of the fuel economy to gain slightly better handling.

Pros

gas mileage handling body style, moon roof, heated mirrors in the winter are great, leather interior is a bonus not sure how it looks with cloth but i can imagine not as sleek and sharp as the leather interior.

Cons

i cant think of any really love this car through and through but i did sort of love my integra as old and dingy as it was .. i could count on it every day and twice on sunday.. same with my RSX

Clean And Clear — I would certainly recommend this car to everyone super MPG's repairs aren't too bad and i haven't had too many to think about outside of replacing the oil pressure switch the first week i owned it.. i haven't had to do too much replaced tires battery and that is about it and of course oil changes and general maintenance a very reliable car and one with a lot of spunk and style too

Great Looks! Great Ride! Little Power.... — I bought my 2006 RSX base model in excellent condition for $11,500 with a few cosmetic upgrades on it. I get 28mpg city/31mpg highway. This car handles great and is a smooth ride, however speed bumps and pot holes rattle the car even only at 5 mph. It can climb up to a pretty good spread but 165 hp just isn't enough for a sporty looking car in my opinion. The automatic adjust mirrors, push-to-start, cruise control, great speakers, and sunroof are great cosmetic features. Mine comes with a slap-stick manual option on my transmission but just isn't the same as a good old fashioned standard that the type S comes with. It can take sharp turns well and acceptation is good for what you're working with. The blind spots scan be tricky but aren't terrible. No room in back seats for passengers to sit comfortably especially on the center seat where there is a hump that'll put your passengers head against the roof. A fun car to have with a sporty look/feel but a luxury ride at the same time.191*** miles and not a single issue yet.

Pros

Has plenty of power when needed. 28 MPG on highway is great. Nothing really goes wrong has a timing chain. Only thing I have done to the car in a year is changed the oil like i should.  Bose speakers are great. 210 Hp so it goes when you bring it to vtec before that it is quiet.

Cons

Small back seat, but that is expected on a sports car. Takes premium, but thats also expected.

Car Is My Favorite Car I Have Ever Driven That Is Reasonably Priced For The Power And Reliability. — I love how well the car handles and drives and can be easily modified to make more power. The suspension is great not to bumpy but still sticks to the road great. And this car definitely has the looks that everyone is looking for in a car.

What Better To Have For Around 20k — perfect starter car that had class and the right amount of horsepower, nothing else in the price range at the time fit all the right attributes like this car. Could always have more power but you will find an S type for that.

Pros

Has great acceleration and always climbing. Spacious front seats, smooth handling pretty good gas mileage if driven appropriately, has pretty good stock power runing 200 hp at 7800rpm. Cargo capacity is great for a 2 door coupe.

Cons

If you lay into it prepare to lose traction if using stock tires. Back seats are tight but are more comfortable than most coupes.

Two Years Of Driving — I bought the car for the engine. It gets great gas mileage in regular driving, and takes off when revved. The seats are comfortable for someone of my stature (6ft). It has excellent build quality. The bad: Third gear sucks, the A/C sucks too much power at the low end, the seats steal change, and it's ridiculously expensive to insure. I consider these issues to be minor. In the end, it's a fantastic. It's practical for daily driving, and fun at the same time.
