    Great! — Only thing I ever had to do to my car was replace the battery because it had the original stock battery still installed from 2005. Great on gas, nice appeal, overall great car! I would recommend this vehicle to anyone.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great on gas, never left me stranded, love this vehicle.

    Cons: Not a lot of backseat room.

    Amazing Car. — In my last year with this car i found to be the most amazing car it looks amazing and it drives freat, is like that sport car you always desired. It is not the most powerful car but the DOC 2.0 VTEC engine is nice. so it is a great car to drive around and to have fun. The A/C is very cold (very important in Florida)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It is a Great Car to drive arrogant, or to go quick... the handling is great specially when driving fast, i love the premium feeling of the car that could be seen in the leather seats or in the A/C that works with a thermostat something nto that common in a sport car.

    Cons: is a bit small, so it is hard to fit people.

    Blue Collar Sports Car — I love so many things about my car such as; the power it produces for being a 4 cylinder, the front bucket leather seats may be my favorite feature, the gas mileage is also great, but overall my favorite thing is the cars reliability. What I wish it had; all wheel drive, power and memory seats, heated seats, slightly better handling. But 1 reason it gets great gas mileage is that the car is light compared to other vehicles with better handling therefore; I would compromise a little of the fuel economy to gain slightly better handling.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage
    power for being 4 cylinder
    cargo capacity
    fold down seats
    Bose premium sound system
    reliability
    looks
    low maintenance cost
    stylish front bucket seats
    AUTO driver side window
    sun roof
    great price as Acura will run for a very long time

    Cons: have to squeeze into the back seat
    visibility is not great
    I wouldn't say it is a family car
    no heated seats
    no power seats

    Clean And Clear — I would certainly recommend this car to everyone super MPG's repairs aren't too bad and i haven't had too many to think about outside of replacing the oil pressure switch the first week i owned it.. i haven't had to do too much replaced tires battery and that is about it and of course oil changes and general maintenance a very reliable car and one with a lot of spunk and style too

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage handling body style, moon roof, heated mirrors in the winter are great, leather interior is a bonus not sure how it looks with cloth but i can imagine not as sleek and sharp as the leather interior.

    Cons: i cant think of any really love this car through and through but i did sort of love my integra as old and dingy as it was .. i could count on it every day and twice on sunday.. same with my RSX

    Great Looks! Great Ride! Little Power.... — I bought my 2006 RSX base model in excellent condition for $11,500 with a few cosmetic upgrades on it. I get 28mpg city/31mpg highway. This car handles great and is a smooth ride, however speed bumps and pot holes rattle the car even only at 5 mph. It can climb up to a pretty good spread but 165 hp just isn't enough for a sporty looking car in my opinion. The automatic adjust mirrors, push-to-start, cruise control, great speakers, and sunroof are great cosmetic features. Mine comes with a slap-stick manual option on my transmission but just isn't the same as a good old fashioned standard that the type S comes with. It can take sharp turns well and acceptation is good for what you're working with. The blind spots scan be tricky but aren't terrible. No room in back seats for passengers to sit comfortably especially on the center seat where there is a hump that'll put your passengers head against the roof. A fun car to have with a sporty look/feel but a luxury ride at the same time.191*** miles and not a single issue yet.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great looks, handling, fuel economy.

    Cons: Not a lot of hp, back seats, cargo space.

    Car Is My Favorite Car I Have Ever Driven That Is Reasonably Priced For The Power And Reliability. — I love how well the car handles and drives and can be easily modified to make more power. The suspension is great not to bumpy but still sticks to the road great. And this car definitely has the looks that everyone is looking for in a car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Has plenty of power when needed. 28 MPG on highway is great. Nothing really goes wrong has a timing chain. Only thing I have done to the car in a year is changed the oil like i should.  Bose speakers are great. 210 Hp so it goes when you bring it to vtec before that it is quiet.

    Cons: Small back seat, but that is expected on a sports car. Takes premium, but thats also expected.

    What Better To Have For Around 20k — perfect starter car that had class and the right amount of horsepower, nothing else in the price range at the time fit all the right attributes like this car. Could always have more power but you will find an S type for that.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: economical, light, customizable, so much storage space

    Cons: little light on the power, still a starter car

    Pros And Cons — Has great acceleration and always climbing. Spacious front seats, smooth handling pretty good gas mileage if driven appropriately, has pretty good stock power runing 200 hp at 7800rpm. Cargo capacity is great for a 2 door coupe. If you lay into it prepare to lose traction if using stock tires. Back seats are tight but are more comfortable than most coupes.

    Rsx Type S — I've own many Acuras and Hondas in the past, this by far is one of my favorites. 2.0L iVtec 200hp 6sp = total awesomeness. No issues for the 1.5 years of ownership, great fuel economy (30+mpg) I will definitively own one of these again.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: K20Z1

    Cons: No LSD
