    Fast But Good For Everyday — Great quality and never needs work. Love the iV-Tech at the high end of the RPM's but don't have to guzzle gas if you don't want to use it for everyday. It's a ton of fun to drive, and even with a heavy load (which it carries a ton of stuff for a sports car) it performs well. Have owned faster and flashy (new RX-8 recently) but sold them and will NOT dream of selling this one. Fast, but not a cop magnet. Happy over 90, but a little light for over 100...though it will do it for you all day long. Best discribed as very quick and fun on curves, but not a long haul brute of a power car. Don't bother with the non-Type S they are a waste if you ask me, it loses the quickness. I gutted the standard stereo system, but that is because of taste not due to lack of quality.

    Pros: quick, tons of room for sports car, good on gas (if you want)

    Cons: only prem. gas = a little extra $, could be an inch or two lower

    Great Car — Overall great car! Love the feel and look of the car. Easy to mod, which is a plus for my modding habits. The horsepower is okay but really lacks in the torque area as most Acura/Hondas do. Like I said though overall great reliable car.

    Pros: Great Look, Easy to Mod, Decent Performance

    Cons: No Torque

    02 Acura Rsx-s — In 2002 when the RSX was first made, it was the fastest fwd four cylinder car in the world. Stock that is. Cost isn't that bad for a new one but used it's even better. 3rd best car ive ever drove. One would be the Infiniti g35 Coupe. Second would be a 2006 Subaru WRX STi. Last thing to note is it had a wide variety of aftermarket parts.

    Pros: Performance, Appearance and Interior

    Cons: 2nd gear grind, 3rd gear pop out.

    2002 Rsx Type-s — Great car, gets upwards of 30+ mpg when you drive it nice on the freeway, and also still has enough get up and go to get you to sixty in just under 7 seconds (my best time is 6.9). No Ferrari, but it is a nice intercity driver that makes for lots of fun.

    Pros: MPG, fun to drive, Handles like it's on rails

    Cons: No F1 by far,  a little less fun under 6k on the Tac

    Acura Rsx - Fun Little Go Kart — Great little go kart-esque coupe. Wish it were the type-s though - not enough power in this baby! Handling is great though, this thing takes turns beautifully. Havn't had to repair anything major in it - just about to lose the tranny after 100k miles. Great first car, but I still wish I had a skyline GT-R

    Pros: quick, cheap, good gas mileage

    Cons: not enough power

    Acura's Should Never Have Dropped This Car — Everything came standard on the Type-S, with no options really to be had. The car is telepathic in terms of communicating the road through the steering wheel and seat. You can feel the friction and contact patch on each individual tire. Off the line is a decent start, but top end is lacking due to the 4 cylinder engine. You can whip this car through an autocross course beautifully. Lots of trunk space and front wheel drive makes this car more practical all year round than one would initially think.

    Pros: Telepathic steering and maneuverability

    Cons: Anemic torque

    02 Rsx Type S — I love the overall feel of the car, but the tranny on it has a ton of defects, and they have to be delt with before you can really tear into it. The cornering is better than any car I have driven so far but the back end seem to get away from you around 65 ish. When the I-Vtec kicks in at 6,000 RPM and takes you to red line (8,200) the car really comes alive! T he Bose sound system is awesome and you get all of this with out sacrificing MPG (29 in town, 36 Highway)

    Pros: Cornering, I-Vtec, Power, Looks, MPG

    Cons: Transmission

    Rsx — I LOVED this car!! I'm a compulsive car buyer, so when this car came out and replaced the Integra, I had to have one.When I worked at Honda, my Used Car manager went to the auction and bought it for me. It came directly from American Honda, was never titled and only had 1000 miles on it! Unfortunetly my love came to an end when I dated a guy who ALWAYS wanted to drive the car...which forced me to buy another car before I couldnt get rid of the RSX anymore. So, no more RSX, no more a$$hole boyfriend

    Pros: EVERYTHING!!

    Cons: NONE!!

    Acura Has Done A Great Job In Producing A Sports Car For Its Make. — The RSX has great acceleration, ok breaking and the handeling is nothing to complain about. Simple repairs and minor adjustments have been made over the coarse of me owning the car. I have changed the exterior to somewhat replicate the ITR model in Japan. I have also changed the front end to an 05-06 model front end.

    Pros: peformance, handling, fun

    Cons: none
