    Type-s — This is the smoothest car I have ever driven. The transmission feels like silk. It is fast as hell and still can put down 30+ miles to the gallon if I don't drive it like a maniac. But what fun is there in that.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nothing to Dislike really

    Cons: Leather is cold in the winter?

    2005 Acura Rsx Type S — This is a great all around car. It is surprisingly spacious when needed, especially for luggage when you lower the rear seats. Its also very fun to drive when you hold out gears to over 8000 rpm. The gas mileage is also close to 30 mpg.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Speed, suprsingly spacious, gas mileage, style, and bose stereo

    Cons: Lack of tourque, loud

    A Fun-to-drive, Sporty Yet Practical Hatchback — The key to this car is that it's fun to drive. Not necessarily all that fast but the urgency of the VTEC and 8,000rpm is incredibly addicting and fun. Handling is the best attribute of this car, although lowering it too much ruins the geometry. It's a honda so reliability and build quality are top notch. I personally like the way the RSX looks but thats purely subjective. Oh, the hatchback design is amazing, there is a TON of cargo space

    Pros: Fun to drive, extremely practical hatchback design, cheap to own

    Cons: not actually that fast, limited tuning potential at the limit, FF limitations

    A Type-s Is So Nice — This is by far the funnest car I have ever driven! I am already a lead foot, and this car just increases that capability lol. Handles quite nice around the turns, is real quick on the roads, and is damn sexy! The mileage can be pretty good if you're not constantly speedy while also being in stop & go traffic. The interior is also just as nice as the exterior with the all black leather - black on black is the best.

    Pros: Style, Speed, Beaty

    Cons: Nothing

    Rsx-s - Greatest Fwd I4 — Solid performance in all areas, gets 0-60 in 6.5 in 3rd gear, solid till 130MPH in 5th. No major problems only the common 3rd gear grind and leaky lights (fixed by dealer for free) Looks gorgeous despite the tan interior, supportive seats and decent room. Gas mileage is good, premium recommended. Overall, I can drive my dad's E92 M3, then drive my RSX-S and wont be bored.

    Pros: Acceleration, handling, quality, appearance, brings a smile everytime you hit 8K

    Cons: 2nd gear wheelhop

    05 Rsx Type S — Give it up for Honda/Acura...One of there bests cars produced thats not a civic come on now, we got the NSX, the S2000, Integra, and now the sexy girl getting RSX. Fun car to drive on back roads with twists and turns, handling is good, leather interior is nice. It has good gas mileage and the maintenance is nice. Nothin more to say

    Pros: Gives Honda a good rep

    Cons: nothin to hate on

    Lower End Luxury, Fun To Drive. — I love my car. It was a great choice for a first car. I have been in one accident, and haven't had it fixed, but you can barely tell. Mine has a leather interior, automatic transmission(i would recommend manual tho), and a sunroof.

    Pros: small but very roomy in the front seats, good handling, a fun car to
    drive.

    Cons: Different brakes than most newer acuras (at least ones ive driven),
    they are not as touchy, back seat has very little leg room, hatchback is
    kind of annoying since its not an actual trunk it has a handle like a
    third door.
    AND its a very expensive car to insure. its in the top 10 of most
    expensive cars to insure.
