I Love This Car, But Its Time For Me To Get A Sedan. — I love this car and would recommend it to any one who wants to have fun and go fast. It is good on gas and is very easily modified to be a great racing car or show car. It is very versatile and doesn't have to be a street car, it can be a good commuter car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good car, fast, reliable. Never had any mechanical problems with it. You can customize this car in pretty much any way you want. The type s is the way to go if you want to purchase a RSX.

Cons: Doesn't really have much room in the back seats.

Great Sporty Car — I have seen a lot of reviews on the RSX type S the major complaints seem to be the 6 speed transmission, shifting and grinding. My car had this similar problem when I purchased it. I changed trans fluid with Amsoil Product, which did seem to help a little, but after reading about the clutch master cylinder problems I purchased an after market Master cylinder, had it installed, and all transmission problems GONE! This car also still has the original clutch that does not slip and works fine. Only other thing replaced on the car have been oxygen sensors and catalytic converter. Also have installed Acura A Spec suspension, lowers the car about an inch and handles fantastic, it does ride a little firmer which I prefer anyway I am 61 years old and absolutely love this kids car LOL

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

Pros: Best car I have ever owned, now has 139,000 miles, drives like a car with 40,000. Handling, power  (for a 4 cylinder) amazing.

Cons: Clutch master cylinder failed after replacing car shifts perfectly no more grinding or third gear problems.

Great Car! — There is a reason Tuners choose this one for Turbos. This car is well balanced, good mannered, and fun to drive. It has quick ratio steering, a perfect suspension, and with the correct tires is a rewarding experience, on the Parkway or Exit Ramps......

Pros: Looks and handling never go out of style

Cons: Needs more stock Horse Power

Buy It As A Toy If Ur Modifying.. Daily Driver Delight — its a tuner car , basically i tore down a type s model and bought a base to transfer all the goodies. i hate insurance rates for these cars. most ppl scoff at four cylinder engines. its a wave of the future, less gas and so much potential with advanced tech on our side. im only pushing 230hp with 194tq but it feels and drives like its gona take off without me.

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

Pros: adren rush

Cons: cop magnet

Loved It — Always loved the integras. Purchased the DC5 to learn more about how to work on the cars and do it myself. the k20 seemed like a good place to start. Maintenance was pretty low cost compared to other cars. Had the car stolen once and finally ended up selling it to get a 4 dr. If i had the option and garage i would purchase again!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car to learn about

Cons: Handeling and targeted for theft

Acura Rsx Type-s...great Little Car! — As a stock car, its great. Its reliable, fun to drive, comfortable, everything you want in a car. With the mods I put on it, that isn't the really case anymore. Ces't La Vie But even with the Mods, the gas mileage is great, the performance is pretty good. 0-60 comes in about 6 seconds, stops on a dime, and the handling is superb. All in all, I would definitely own another own another Acura!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great performance at a great value

Cons: Problems relating to the mods that I installed...like having no suspension left because its been lowered 2", etc.
