    Two Years Of Driving — I bought the car for the engine. It gets great gas mileage in regular driving, and takes off when revved. The seats are comfortable for someone of my stature (6ft). It has excellent build quality. The bad: Third gear sucks, the A/C sucks too much power at the low end, the seats steal change, and it's ridiculously expensive to insure. I consider these issues to be minor. In the end, it's a fantastic. It's practical for daily driving, and fun at the same time.

    Pros: Power, handeling, appearance, gas mileage, build quality

    Cons: Third gear, A/C, insurance

    Showing The Acura/honda Community How To Do It Right — The stock body design is absolutely a work of art, I don't remember any stock body having the designs of a aftermarket one, while keeping the car as clean as possible. The interior is also very nice, the addition of black leather (racing seats design) and red lights really bring out the aggressive look/feel while driving. Im very impressed by the handling performance of the stock car, allowing it to take corners which other car might have trouble with. Basically if your looking for a car thats able to deliver without the 30k price tag, then this is a car you should look into, able to become a street car or a track car.

    Pros: 2.0 liter 210 k20z1 engine
    thats 100 Hp per liter, not many engines can say that.
    VTAK

    Cons: Low torque
    4 finger tire gap
    Every RSX only comes with 100 "Vtec", so use them wisely

    Great Car, Big Fan Of Acura's! I Like Every Car That They Practically Put Out. — It's a fast car. It is equiped with nice accesseries. It is a really fun car to drive! Acura RSX can pull off any color and still look nice and sporty. It gets good gas mileage and last for miles and miles. Acura's improve on the body each year and the equipment that is put into the car. There is always something new to look forward to when the new Acura's come out.

    Pros: That the speakers sound really good and there isn't much to add on to the car because it comes with everything.

    Cons: That it's not big enough for a family.

    Economy Car With Ferrari Dreams — Leave it to Honda to make a car that gets 28/31 mpg, goes 0-60 in under 7 seconds, and can dance with an STi through a slalom. On back roads this car is a blast, i've never flogged a car this hard, and my tires show it. Even when this car comes undone in a corner, all you have to do is either let off the gas on stomp on the gas to save it, it's miraculous. On the highway, the big gears in it allow for smooth passing even in 6th gear. However thanks to the hard suspension and short wheelbase, it is really a rough ride.

    Pros: Quick, Sharp Looking, Fun 8300 rpm redline, and 31 mpg highway

    Cons: 8300 redline isn't fun in city driving, and ride comfort isn't great

    It's An Acura — Bought it new on somewhat of an impulse buy, I did fall in love with it when I first got it but soon realized what I could have got for the same price. So far mechanically the car has been perfect, I have been pretty hard on it and it takes the abuse well. Build quality is good, handling is quite good for a front wheel drive car. The car sounds nice for a 4banger but is somewhat gutless, however I couldn’t justify paying the extra 6 grand for the type S. All in all it’s a very good daily driver, looks sharp and it was bought new so I really can't complain.

    Pros: Looks, reliability, leather heated seats

    Cons: Gutless, front wheel drive
