    Love My Vixen — I love the car it has good suspension, and great looks. Has plenty of mods out for it and is pretty easy to work on. The interior is also quite good for a sports car and the interior lights are red which is pretty cool. And it also has no tractoion control which is cool. And gets great mileage 35 HWY MPG!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a small sports car with a little zip to it.

    Cons: If you hate i-VTEC

    Rsx — All around good car. Quick, light, and good handling. Comfortable. I upgraded the suspension a little bit and also upgraded audio. Not a lot of room for speakers or anything but it sounds good once it is inside the vehicle.

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

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: nothing

    Shweet Whip — Its sweet... Its got a full ITR conversion. I have an aftermarket Intake, Header, Exhaust, and Hondata Kpro ECU and full coilover suspension system. Im Currently making about 230 WHP and 190 pounds of torque. 0-60 is about 5.7 seconds.

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

    Pros: Canyon Runs/ Touge

    Cons: 91 gas only

    Quality Performance And Great Reliability — The car is worthwhile whether as a daily commuter of if you are building for a weekend racer. The only downside if cost of insurance and modification but the car can be pushed farther than one would expect. I'd buy it again.

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

    Pros: Good from the factory and great w/ some work.

    Cons: Insurance Cost

    I Enjoy Driving It On A Daily Basis. — Good acceleration, and pretty good suspension, even for the base model. The Vtec really helps both with power and gas mileage. Barely uses any gas, and it's decently sporty. Overall the car is perfect for what it was made for.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable, gas-saver, Vtec

    Cons: Low power compared to similar style cars, 4 seater.

    She Is A Project Car, With So Much Potential. — She is fast and ready to race...hollowed out so she is lighter and quicker on the road. Minor details need to be fixed, too loud, handling is alil off, but overall shes my perfect project car. LOVE HER!! Shes real good on gas..300 miles to a tank, and it only costs 30 to fill. Interior will be gutted completely out so her appearance will change, color theme is tan and black (exterior) and black and red (interior) also new clutch 6spd, prob drop a diff engine, take out the intake and put in a turbo.....OH I CANT WAIT!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: she is fast, reliable, gorgeous, and I LOVE HER

    Cons: maintenance. If you dont wanna put in the time to make your car right, dont buy it.

    I Enjoy Driving It On Weekends, But As A Daily Driver I Hated It. — Great motor and transmission. The McPherson strut is just inferior to the older SLA suspension which happen to be the biggest downfall of the car. It has the turning radius of a naval vesil. Suspension it just to soft for a "sport tuned" suspension and it handles average at best. Interior is nice, but not high quality. Seats ripped. Steering wheel wore down. Some problems with the windows. Hatch leaks. Gas mileage is good,I average around 33-34 overall. Only problem is it takes premium and synthetic oil because of the high compression high-revving engine. It is fun to drive on weekends. Parts are still expensive for the car despite it being almost 8 years old. Get a GSR or an ITR instead.

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

    Pros: Fun drive.  Quick.  Strong Engine.    6 Speed.

    Cons: Poor build quality.

    I Personally Love It, But I Still Would Rather Have The S — Performance- acceleration is not that good, there is somewhat of a lag. For build, come on, all Hondas are tough, but I did have trouble with the headlight for a while. I love the appearance, both interior and exterior. Cost of ownership is perfect for any college kid, it runs good on gas and I rarely bring it in for maintenance. It could be more fun to drive if I could mod it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Small, sport luxury

    Cons: The base model sucks, accelerates slowly- If you want to mod this car, better off with the type s

    My Rsx Type S — This car is very fun to drive. It handles like a dream, just point the car where ever you want and it goes there. Build quality is very strong, nothing really feels cheap. My only complaint is the bass from the bose stereo. It has a sub in it from the factory but its a joke.

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

    Pros: Handling, quick for the size of the motor

    Cons: stereo, bottom end(but that's expected out of a ivtec)
