Pros

second most powerfull inline 4 N/A car in america.

Cons

you can get a rsx for alot less and just cam it out and its fwd

25

Great Car. — the looks of the car could be a little better. the handling makes you feel like you cant drive to hard around a corner with out tripoding. when buying the car make sure 3rd gear dosent pop out some times and if so make sure worenty will cover it(very common problem with the syncros).

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

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.

Good Like No One, Why Don't You Just Buy It? — Excelent brakes :P I can sleep, eat, browse internet and make love in this car so it's like my home, second home. Or my first home :)) No kidding, I like Acura first because is a Japanese car. This means is a robust one, a good fuel consumption and of course very nice design :)

Fun to drive, fairly practical, and solid overall.

Cons

The car has too many comprimises and was expensive when it was made.

Good For What It Is. — The car is great overall. It's a solid performer for it's model year, but in general it just doesn't keep up with today's sport compacts. The factory tires are just not up to the task, and the lack of a limited slip differential really hampers cornering and overall grip. The car is solid through and through although the gearbox does come with some nagging issues that i never would expect out of Honda. Appearance-wise, the a-spec kit is a little much, but its functional and does make the car look a bit more aggresive. The car has a great aftermarket...but only if you're willing to shell out the cash. Budget options all pretty much suck. However as a daily driver I definitely couldn't ask for anything better.

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.

Very sensitive suspension.

25

Acura Rsx Type-s — I love my car! It's tons of fun to drive, especially on long trips. Unfortunately, it is not a fan of the crappy roads in the area as the suspension is very sensitive to potholes! This car has great handling and corners very well! Additionally, it has excellent acceleration for those moments when it is necessary to get away from the idiot drivers!

Slow to accel, rough ride on bad roads, 3rd gear problem

The Rsx-s — Acceleration's a bit low, but it's a very smooth ride on great roads. It has a problem with the third gear, not being able to stay in gear immediately after you shift. Appearance is great. Decent gas mileage, doesn't need tons of maintenance, just synthetic oil every five thousand miles. This car is amazing to drive; you'll love taking corners and curves! I would recommend this car to any Japanese car fan, who loves to drive actively.
