Faithful Old Friend — Bought it on Ebay 10 years ago. Now over 200,000 miles. Good power, handling, etc. it is an Acura after all. The need for premium and only 26 MPG is a little unfortunate these days. The latest Accords have more features and cost $500 less per year in gas.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks and drives well after all these years

Cons: Transmission has been rebuilt. MPG is better than projected, but fuel costs are higher than I wish.

Clean Title — Car is very sporty looking with extra trim package. Repair costs are reasonable and can be brought to most mechanics. Car handles very good with good accelaeration. Surprising large trunk space. The gold package on White Pearl color looks classy.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: smooth ride, very quick and responsive, good handling.

Cons: Lower to ground

Zip Zoom — This car is fun to drive. The acceleration and maneuverability of the car truly defines its sportiness. The leather, trim, fit and finish, all give you a sense of luxury. This is a well built car designed to go many safe and comfortable miles.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Loads of power when you need it.  Handling is very responsive especially in city traffic when you need to Zip here and Zip there.  All controls are within good distance, no fumbling to find the right button or switch.  Visibility while driving is great.  When the car is placed in reverse the right side mirror automatically adjust for better visibility.

Cons: The car sits low to the ground so getting in and out is difficult for older people.  The suspension is a little stiff creating a more rigid ride, however it hangs a curve like a go-cart.

A Great, Smooth, Powered And Pimped Ride — Pros: A good car with all the luxury, reliability, power, looks and technology that Acura can provide. A V6 3.2L V-Tech is awesome! Cons: fuel economy's bad but average on highway, transmission problems in 2002-2003, not as much nervous as BMW 3 series.

Pros: none

Cons: none

Bottom Line On This Car Would Be If We Took Some Things Off And Negotiated From Doing So. — Dislike- when you're flyin around a turn you rub on the opposite side in the lowest possition set on the coilovers. I have them set to the stiffest setting but still rides awsome unless your turning with force.. Like-SUper fun to drive!!I love the look, clean, Very clean interior, Leather looks Great.. I had the Tranny replaced in 09 at about 73k.. running great since then, i only run Mobile1 synthetic and i wwork at a Volvo dealership so it's Had Every service interval with recipts to proove

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: roomy, peppy, tight handeling, sporty ride

Cons: If you hadn't had a tranny swap yet you will have to

My Elanor — This car is very good looking for its year and has many features in it that make it that much more better, its my first car and I must say its a pretty damn good car for a first car. Only problem with it is the transmission, the overwhelming power of the V-Tec 3.2 L engine is too much for the feeble 5 speed transmission, the car is not meant to be raced but to be babied from when it leaves the lot to when the engine goes.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: luxury, style and endurance

Cons: Transmission
