    Great Car, Would Buy It Again If It Was Cheaper! — Currently fastest car I have owned. Only has a CAI for now, was able to get a 14.8 out of it. Very solid car, nice interior/exterior. Better mpg than my integra which surprised since it's faster but I'm not complaining! Definitely fun to drive, but would be much more fun with mods!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4cyl na acceleration, handling, gas mileage, appearance

    Cons: Pricey

    Good Car, And Looks Shape Too:) — It only does around 500kms to a tank of gas, and the braking isn't the best since it has abs brakes, so sometimes it locks up if u brake really fast.. The acceleration is pretty good, and I haven't had to do too much in maintenance ways.. I dropped the car 2inches in the front and 2inches in the back, it rides really tight now, but is real rough over bumps now:(...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It picks up good, and rides pretty tight..

    Cons: Don't drop a car 2inches it will ride rough...  But it will take corners very nice..

    If You Like A Car Thats Decently Quick Stock, Nice Interior And Room To Modify.. Perfect Car For You — I have been driving and building hondas since i was 14 (now 20) and love the rsx. I have had a turbo civic, turbo integra, turbo crx's and this has to be the best car in a single package. It does miss a few un-necissary things like heated seats, but otherwise you can't argue. I have owned my rsx now for a year and love the sound of I-Vtec it just sounds SO MUCH better than ANY B SERIES motor! The car handles excellent, rides smooth, pretty quick with just intake and exhaust. If you want to stall All-Motor and go fast I would highly suggest KPRO. Not to mention honda/acura basically builds the car around the motor and suspention. To Conclude to whoever spelled "VTECH" should go buy a house phone, Honda enthusiast, "hit vtec, it makes everything better"

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

    Pros: Sylish, Leather, Premium Sound System, Performance, Handling/Suspention, Quality, Motor/Tranny, Paint, ect...

    Cons: no heated seats, thats got to be it

    Good Car — acceleration, braking and handling is awesome, but i need more. build quaility : just like honda quality not an Acura. appearance : if u looking for the best looking car in low budget, the answer is rsx. Cost of ownership : gas mileage is good but rsx needs preminum gas. maintenance fee is actually high. especially price of parts are high.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: sporty looks, best FF car

    Cons: bad ride quality, small engine

    Not A Race Car, But A Fun Daily Driver. — Performance - Not fast in a straight line but fun to drive. Great handling, can be make even better with aftermarket parts. Great braking. Build Quality - Its an Acura build quality is excellent. No squeaks or rattles. AC went out on it, and the power door locks went out on it but they got replaced. Other than that its great. Appearance - One word SEXY. The leather feels cheap though.. Cost of Ownership - Good. Stuff has broke on it but its almost got 100k miles so you have to expect it. I get 28 mpg combined city and highway which is good. Parts are relatively cheap due to it being built by Honda. Fun Factor - Hell yes. This car is fun to drive! I still look forward to driving it after having it 3 1/2 years..

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun and Sexy, shifts like butter.

    Cons: Slowish, Kind of uncomfortable on long trips

    Ideal First Car, Great All Around Coupe. — light weight, tight handling, responsive 2.0L engine, aesthetics, spacious front seats, easy to maintain, ridiculously good gas mileage, six speed transmission is sporty and adds to the experience. Overall, a solid car thats quick and fun to drive around town and on highway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Practical sports coupe

    Cons: Less prestige than competitors. Model no longer in production.

    Solid — It's me. The Acura RSX is a solidly build integra. the shifts are delayed but i enjoy it very much. i don't like the dark red color though. i would prefer something a little more bold. yellow or white. maybe black. or a brighter red. idk

    Pros: build quality

    Cons: nothing much. but its auto

    I Would Buy It Again — Very Fun Car, 3 door car, spacious for luggage, not so much for company. great milage, low maint, cept for brand which is acura, enjoyable car . Can be a car for street racing, although I do not recommend getting the car near dangerous situations.

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

    Pros: fun, good for the urge to drive around

    Cons: Acura parts more expensive than honda
