    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!

    A Well Built And Fun To Drive Best In Class Sport Compact — This car handles like it's on rails. The car has more than enough horsepower to do the job, especially for its light weight. This is the most fun I have ever had with a car. They are built quite solidly, in the year and a half I have owned mine it has not seen a single repair shop, and there are no indications it will need to in the future. It is a bit of a sports car, and it is targeted at young adult males, like myself, so if you are under 25, insurance will probably be hell. Also note, it requires premium fuel, so expect a few more bucks at the pump.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Performance (RELIABLE PERFORMANCE) in all categories,

    Cons: If you have high insurance rates, this will not help.
