Incredible Single Man's Car! — I really love this car. It has been very reliable, easy to maintain and is fun to drive. It has incredible power and when combined with how lite it is, this car is very quick. I love the interior and look of the car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Incredible car!  It is fast, reliable and has stood the test of time. Being a hatchback it has a ton of cargo space and the interior leather is of excellent quality!

Cons: none

My Baby — Had my rsx for years now and would most likely never give it up as this model is discontinued. Love the bucket seats, leather but most importantly Ive never had to worry about any mechanical problems. Best car Ive owned yet.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very dependable!!!

Cons: Might as well be a 2 seater, not really enough room to sit people in the back seat.

Impressive — over all i enjoyed having and driving this car. it had power where i needed it, it was reliable, and the handling seemed to have no end. this car amazed me and exceeded my expectations minus the lack of torque however the top end speed made up for it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it has plenty of power in a naturally aspirated 2.0 liter engine with 210 horsepower stock. it is a sleek aggressive looking car and handles corners like a dream.

Cons: it has no back seat but then again they didnt build this car to haul a family around.

Sporty And Reliable — Maintenance costs are average, except my driver's side power window died and I was told that it would cost $350 to fix it. They said the parts for the Type-S window motor & regulator would cost about $300. This was not a dealer quote. There are some blind spots which make it difficult to see, especially when you're in a median and trying to pull out into traffic. Overall it's a great car to have if you don't have to deal with constant traffic and you don't plan on having more than 1 passenger. The look of the car is very sporty and stands out.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, bucket seats, design of interior.

Cons: It's a stick shift and I deal with a lot of "stop and go" traffic. The factory paint job (red) is now a nightmare! It looked gorgeous until about 3 years ago. Now it's half pink and half red.

Fast & Furious — I love my car! Its fast, sporty, handles great. Great on gas. Triptronic is great if you get bored while driving and like to drive standard. Would only trade my car if I had lots of money and could afford a Nissan Gt or something better!
