Pros

Power, handeling, appearance, gas mileage, build quality

Cons

Third gear, A/C, insurance

35

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.

Pros

Looks, reliability, leather heated seats

Cons

Gutless, front wheel drive

It's An Acura — Bought it new on somewhat of an impulse buy, I did fall in love with it when I first got it but soon realized what I could have got for the same price. So far mechanically the car has been perfect, I have been pretty hard on it and it takes the abuse well. Build quality is good, handling is quite good for a front wheel drive car. The car sounds nice for a 4banger but is somewhat gutless, however I couldn’t justify paying the extra 6 grand for the type S. All in all it’s a very good daily driver, looks sharp and it was bought new so I really can't complain.

Rsx Type S — I've own many Acuras and Hondas in the past, this by far is one of my favorites. 2.0L iVtec 200hp 6sp = total awesomeness. No issues for the 1.5 years of ownership, great fuel economy (30+mpg) I will definitively own one of these again.

Stick

Cons

Gas

Like It — Acceleration is good, braking is average, handling is average. Appearance is great, the interior is lacking of technology. Cost of ownership is cheap and its a fun ride. With a few struts, the ride should be better and mugen lip should make the car appear even better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

luxury, gas mileage, build quality, performance

turning radius, sound system, maintenance can be pricey

Versatile Sports Coupe W/ Exceptional Refinement — This care easily cruises at 70-80 on the freeway, and I'm glad I have to reign in the speed, rather than always prod it to go faster. Acceleration, braking, and handling are very good, but not stellar. When I get in, the seat seems to hug my form and I appreciate all the sleek, sexy details incorporated into design of the interior. I also like the understated elegance of the exterior. Thus far, I haven't needed any repairs. Once I had to reset the power window auto-down button. But, that's about it. You can fit an ungodly amount of stuff in this car when you fold the seats down and use the hatchback feature. It also gets great gas mileage! I'm averaging about 28 to 31 now. This car fits my personality and I anticipate enjoying it for many years to come. I only wish it had a better stereo system and an auxiliary port for my iPhone 3G.

if your a baby about cold leather

Awesome — great car only thing it was missing was heated since especially since it was leather interior. 6 speed manual transmission was a plus. 6 disc in dash cd player was nice to have. but buying wheels and tires was a little pricey.

My Rsx — This car feels like a sports car. I like the ability to accelerate at will, great braking power and it handles really well. I suppose my biggest complaint is the heat the car gives off from the aftermarket hedders and reduced fuel economy. But hey, you have to accept such things when wanting to go really fast. I also like the amount of after market accessories available.

Easy to drive and does great on gas.

The stereo is a little dated.

Love It. — I love this car. It's stylish and easy to drive. It also does very well on gas. The only thing I would change is the radio, it's very basic. Other then that this car is awesome. Even the acceleration on this car is better then any other 4 cylinder car out there.
