    Yeah — Acura RSX type S. The interior is nice, S models have the leather, 6 disc in dash, back-lit red gauges. 6 speed transmission is slick, read in a magazine that it's "one of the best gear boxes in the world". Quick and agile for a front wheel drive. Very little maintenance even though it's rev limiter is 8400RPM.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Quick, good gas milage

    Cons: Can't do things rear wheel and all wheel drive can.

    Its Justa Car — This is the 2nd RSX both have been okay, This is only the base model so acceleration could be better. Handle is decent, but a fair amount of understeer. Well build K20 engine is good on gas and is reliable. Interior quality is high.

    Pros: Good on gas

    Cons: Its expensive to fix

    My Rsx. — I think that it has the capability to be an incredibly fast car but, I personally think that it's not made for a quarter mile. I think it's better suited for the autocross track. I think that if someone is looking for a quick Honda 4 cylinder, then this would be the perfect car.

    Pros: Very fun car on the back roads.

    Cons: The fact that parts are so expensive.

    Amazing — great performance all around, runs with strong v6's like 350z's and v8's like mustangs but still manages over 30 mpg with a best of 34.2 mpg, look forward to driving it everyday, only routine maintenance is needed, holds value well, rides great for a sports car almost no body roll, 4 cylinder that can run a 13 second quarter mile with bolt ons and not break your wallet to keep it up and running

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

    Pros: performance, fuel economy

    Cons: none

    Lil Fast Car, Like It Alot — I pretty much love this car for the most part. Right now the front end is a lil busted up since I rear- ended a van a few months ago. It handles like a dream and I have really learned to love driving a manual and hate automatics these days. If u make fun of me cuz I drive a "rice burner" i will kill you, painfully and slowly and with pleasure. Just kidding. It has been lowered a few inches has 18 in RH EVO RIms, aftermarket body kit, a GREDDY exhaust system and a short ram air intake. Wanna buy new headers and some type of turbo kit but haven't looked enough into buying one since I don't really have the money and I don't want to get too excited when I don't have money.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast and really good on MPGs

    Cons: Some lil things I want to fix and some things I want to add to it

    Acura — Very good for daily drive. Great appearance and very fun to drive. Gas mileage is decent and does not have many problems. 2.0 iVtec sounds really nice at high rpm. Insurance can cost a lot since it considered a sports car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Advance

    Cons: Winter

    I Like It, But It Could Be Faster. — I have the base model RSX, so for what it is it's great. It's fast enough for zipping around the city, it looks great, but it's not a real sports car. Would I buy one again, definitely. Though I probably would have got the Type-S.

    Pros: It's fun, looks good, and reliable

    Cons: None that I can think of

    Rsx Love — This has been my favorite car I've owned so far. It is a fun car to drive: it's quick, sleek, stylish, built extremely well, etc. I have owned this car for almost 3 years, and it has been nothing but good times. This car is one of the best "Bang for your Buck" type deals around in my opinion. Modding can be a bit expensive, but that is usually the case with any car. I would recommend an RSX-S to anyone willing to drive stick.

    Pros: sporty, sleek, quick, relatively inexpensive for what you get, parts easily obtained for modding...

    Cons: rattles/squeaks in the cabin come with age, but that is with any car...

    They Should Make These Cars Again:) — Performance its acceleration pretty good, the braking its great, also the handles wonderful.. Build Quality not too bad:) For the cost of ownership for the gas mileage, the car only gets around 500kms to a tank of gas:(.. Build Quality:)

    Pros: The car handles great, on turns..

    Cons: A little hard on gas..
