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

Great Car If You Can Afford It. — Fast car, I run chargers and mustangs of the road no problem. I got done in by a BMW M3 and of course some motorcycles but other than that I own the road. Only thing is its like any luxury brand, Very expensive upkeep. $1600 for new HID oem headlights.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very fast car without the aggressive looks that attract police

Cons: Expensive upkeep, almost everythings Has to come from Acura dealership

Rubbish When It Was Brand New And Complete Rubbish When It Crashes You. — wobbling, not solid, not safe, head end too heavy, weight portion fail. Rear seat head rests unadjustable. Blucket seats don't hold you tight enough. Seatbelts are rubbish. Quality are rubbish. Woods trims are plastics. On board First-aid kit cover is made out of cheap plastic. Hateful car. Therefore my mum bought cause she knew nothing about cars. Noise isolation is rubbish. The only thing I could think of it's good is the Air Conditioning cool the car rather quickly. That's it. Work harder and buy an Audi A6 or Volvo S80.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: No reason to drive this car, rather suicide.

Cons: Very high-end Honda Accord. So why boarder than Acura?

Motor Trend Was Right! — Despite transmission problems (replaced by dealer out of warranty) this is the best car I've ever owned. Repairs and maintenance are expensive. OK gas mileage. Great fun; full of temptation. Everyone wants to drive it. Lots of silver Acura's where I live.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handling

Cons: Transmission in Early 2000's
