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.

only 2 doors very tight if you have a family

Highly Suggest It To Anyone Looking For A Cheap Pre Owned Sports Car Maybe For A Young Adult — needs all wheel drive and turbo from the RDX but maybe thats my inner eclipse trying to get loose. This car says Acura but it screams Honda. Meaning you get great dependability and reliabiltyin a car that seems like it has a rocket for an engine. i could get a better bang for my buck. Especially since its so good on gas.

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.
