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.

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

Pros: Gives Honda a good rep

Cons: nothin to hate on
