    Excellent Built Quality And The 260hp Engine Is Very Powerful! — Had the car for almost a year. It was a company car. I was very happy with the upscale interior and the large boot space. The car was very comfortable to drive on long trips. The engine was very powerful and made an amazing noise when accelerated on full throttle. Handling was also excellent. Type S features a sports suspension but doesn't compromise ride quality. One major disadvantage is the notchy automatic transmission that takes forever to find the right gear. The car is solid thought and a good buy with all the "goodies" that includes like power everything, leather etc.

    Pros: engine, built, handling

    Cons: notchy transmission

    Overall:

    An All-around Great Car — A great car - V6 engine puts out about 230 hp and can really get going using auto-stick. The suspension is good for a sedan, not stiff enough for really taking the turns, but provides a smooth ride and quick manueverability. The interior is great - heated leather seats, an amazing Bose soundsystem, and a decent fan for A/C and heat. All the controls are easy to find and use. Plenty of storage room for all your phones, ipods, cameras. Very solid all-around, have had very little maintenance problems.

    Pros: Great power for a V6 and amazing Bose soundsystem

    Cons: auto-stick doesn't allow manual control over 1st gear, rear seats don't fold down - can only use the pass-through

    Solid As A Rock. — While it has a tuned down version of the awesome 3.2 liter Honda engine, It still gets to top speed smoothly and quickly. The engine is so finely tuned it sounds more like a woosh than a roar.

    Pros: Smooth, Comfortable, and pretty fast.

    Cons: Expensive to repair, 225hp engine could produce a little more power.

    Acura=performance — This was originally my mothers car, but I ended up getting it. I didn't love the original look so I suped it up to my liking Its Fast, especially with a cold air intake and exhaust added on.. VTEC acts like a turbo. other add ons include, tinted windows, 2 10" subwoofers, 2005 acura 3.2tl rims, and pinstripe

    Pros: its performance is quite amazing for a sedan

    Cons: without the improvements its a car my mom would drive
