    I Love My Car — Fantastic little sports coupe. Plenty of standard features that are options on more expensive cars. Handling is superb, regardless of the FWD layout. Simple clean good looks. No racy, spoilers, splitters, or exaggerated lines. Effortless acceleration in any gear. VTEC is amazing... winding the car up in the lower gears is hard to resist. Beautiful interior, excellent driving position, well bolstered sport seats. Six speed transmission is a pleasure to use. Hatchback design makes this/that more practical. Aftermarket tuning options are endless.

    Pros: V tech and comfort.

    Cons: none

    Most Fund Sport Coupe I Ever Owned — Great power for a small and affordable luxury compact. Great handling! Great engine!

    Pros: Loved the power to weight ratio...a fun and practical car that still seats 4.

    Cons: Transmission stinks. Nice feel, but breaks. Lots of service bulletins out but Honda still says there's no "official" problem. Had my 6 speed rebuild once under warranty when I had mine.

    Sporty Compact Coupe — I really had a lot of fun the 3 years I had this car. It was very sporty and I loved driving it everywhere. It was the first true car I've driven daily and I really miss driving around in it.

    Pros: - Awesome looks
    - Great performance

    Cons: - Uncomfortable back seat

    Typical Near-luxe Japanese Sport Coupe — Can't complain too much about this car... its super easy to take care of, extremely reliable, relatively good looking, and usually fun to drive. Aside from an expensive clutch repair (mostly my fault), there haven't been any issues. Its pretty solid on gas even in colder weather (we've moved from Miami to NY in the last 10 months). No options to add on the type-s over those already added, not a terrible problem, but it could use a better stereo.

    Pros: Very reliable; engine is rewarding to drive at high RPM; GREAT transmission; good resale value.

    Cons: Could use more power; needs driver power seats, navigation, and a better head unit OR an overall weight loss plan.

    Good Car For City Life — Overall was a Ok car. The acceleration was great, and you cant beat all the bells and whistled associated with owning an Acura. Was not impressed with durability. All expenses where usually with small parts, but they were expensive.

    Pros: Acceleration (especially V-Tech)

    Cons: Expensive parts

    With A Turbo, Sweet — Nice car, insane ride, had a turbo, intercooler, and straight 3" pipes out the back, a little beat up though..

    Pros: fast as hell, responsive

    Cons: loud as crap, pulled to the right whenever the turbo spooled down, needed new tires

    Fast,efficient,good Looks, And Good Price! — This car reminded me of my dirt bike, a little slow of the line, but give it a second and car acts like it got it's tail stepped on! 13" front brake rotors made for some sweet stoppage, and the 6 speed and race clutch were a blast! I got 38 mpg on the highway, and about 20 in town, pretty good for a 200 hp little race car. The leather interior was nice, with 6 in the dash CD changer and BOSE sound, with leather seats and moon roof, with temp control, tilt, cruise, etc. Awesome car!

    Pros: pretty much everything!

    Cons: I couldn't load a dirt bike into it, that's about it.

    So Much Fun..... — I was actually looking at a Jeep when i saw this on the lot. Bought it used and it has been a great car. Corners well and picks up speed very quickly. Great car over all, no major repairs have been necessary since I got it three years ago.

    Pros: Fast, sleek, very responsive

    Cons: small, oh so small.  esp in the back seat. great for two people.
