    Lovin It!!!! — You should know why I love this car. It's got the V-tec in it of course. Good giddy up and good gas mileage. You, can also pump out a f-ton of ponies without having to worry about rebuilding the motor.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's fast STOCK!!!

    Cons: COPS = TICKETS

    Worth More Than You Pay. — Great turning radius, good accel, quality interior, decent gas milage for the style, alittle cramped minimal back seat room. plenty of cargo room. Very well priced. a lot of fun to drive. Sturdy suspension, good visibility. Very much worth it.

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

    Pros: Alot of fun for a great price.

    Cons: Really only for 2 people comfortably

    200k Possible? — acceleration for a 4cylinder is good, braking is decent, and handling is above average. build quality is better than german or american cars, though the doors sounds like an empty can when you close it. cost owndership is low. avg mpg is 27 and no reparis required so far at 100k other than regular maintenance. it is fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: mpg

    Cons: close to 100k

    Happy — everything is great braking stock sucks, but with axxis pads and resurfaced rotors it breaks super fast performance is ok stock, but with turbo on 16psi putting down about 360hp its awesome looks great after you drop it on springs and put on bigger feels cost to own is only maintenance when you mod it, stock it should be just oil changes

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    My Daily Ride — The acceleration is not as quick as some car with turbo or supercharger. The handling is nice since I change to A-Spec suspensions. Braking....it requires more time to stop by comparing to the car like GTI or SE-R. Mine has 70,000KM with only replaced an oxygen sensor from the dealer. Other than that, my car is running in a good condition. The gas mileage is 460KM before the light goes on if I don't turn on my VTEC often hehe.

    Pros: Nice combination of the engine and transmission

    Cons: No LSD

    Rsx Cars Are A Good Buy... — its not a bad car other than the motor mounts have a reputation of going on them all the time, cuz the mounts are cheap. Its a fun car but hope a headlight never goes cuz you have to remove the whole bumper just to change them unless you want your hand cut up real bad...

    Pros: its a quick lil car...   

    Cons: needs more power...

    Beloved Acura — high rpm motor is alot of fun with an 8250 rev limit. fun on backroads and in the corners. gas mileage is a very respectable 28 over the lifetime of ownership. stiff suspention does make long drives tiresome in the end. wouldn't trade it for anything else in its class.

    Pros: decent gas mileage, solid construction, absolute blast to drive, aerodynamically limited to 148 mph

    Cons: a bit on the expensive side, expensive to repair. requires premium gas
