Acura El - Affordable Luxury. — The Acura EL sports affordable luxury by far. Power options and a powerful VTEC motor for improved torque. Makes the EL as much fun to drive, As it is safe and reliable. A mix of Power, Fun, Style, and a price that doesnt break the bank, makes the EL Compact Luxury Sedan from Acura, a good choice. (wrote that myself :) )

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sexy Styling, Honda Perfomance.

Cons: Aftermarket Parts.

Acura All The Way! — I rate this car high above domestic vehicles. 11 years old but looks 5. Paint & body are amazing, engine runs great. Obviously needed some replacements after 11 yrs. Every vehicle does! Keep the oil changed and you've got a friend for life! I have absolutely no complaints.

Pros: Great car.  No worries.

Cons: Replace the balljoints before they give out on you!

98 Acura El — The car was pretty decent. It was a good first car just not enough horse power but what do you expect comeing from a car based on the civic. The car was easy to work on, nothing too complex to deal with. A larger alternator will also com in handy, lights dim even with just the turn signal on.

Pros: Overall good first car.

Cons: Needs larger alternator.

It's A Handsome Little Car — The car is really good on gas and it has Honda's famous reliability and great engineering. It is basically a Honda Civic with options that you can't get on the Civic like leather seating and I believe better styling. The engine is small but powerful. I have a 5 speed manual transmission which I recommend with most 4 cylinder engines. Automatic transmissions slow the car down too much because the power in this car is made high in the rev range.

Pros: Gas mileage is very good. Resale value is high, depreciates at a much slower rate than most cars.

Cons: not many... normal wear and tear. It's not a new car so no warrentee.

Really Good Car — It's a pretty good car for a daily driver. It's also good for people who like's to do improvement to there cars, from performance to aesthetics anything is possible because it's compaticle with a civic. You could swap any B serie engine with out a problem.

Pros: it has super rare fog lights

Cons: it's not a premium
