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

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.

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.

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.

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.
