2fast2furoius — Performance is up there, but you might not feel it b/c its is a heavy car. The way it looks is amazing w/t the fog lamps + turn light signals, car turns heads everytime you pass someone at the bus stop.

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

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Fantastic! — Honda has really outdone themselves with this car. Not only is the 3.5L V6 incredibly powerful, but also extremely reliable. Advanced interior and a sleek, sexy exterior. 0-60 comes in 5.5 seconds thanks to a limited slip differential. Painted Brembo brakes are standard and look fantastic behind standard 10 spoke black chrome wheels.

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

Pros: Awesome horsepower with awesome reliability.

Cons: Torque Steer

My Ex — The performance of the car was what was expected from a japan made car. Build was great and so on with appearance. Cost of ownership was very compatible with anyone who works. Fun factor is that you look good in the car. Other than that I could say it left me wanting more.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Beautiful car

Cons: Left me wanting more

I Love My Tl Type-s! — What's not to like? I had a base model, but saw this Type-S on the lot and had to have it. I have never done such a crazy thing but it was a one-time deal and I had to have it! This car is amazing. I clocked it from 50-70 in 2.5 seconds with my family inside! The car looks mean, and the power goes well with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: All that power and looks so mean!

Cons: All that power and not enough road :-(

Great Car, That Could Benefit From More Power (300hp+), Bigger Tires (at Least 18") And Keyless Sta — Performance - sprightly but could use more low end torque, acceleration is cool but engine sound like it is straining when gunned, could use lot more growl out of the exhaust; braking is cool though sometimes the electronic braking/auto downshift thing is alarming; handles real well - steering is taut. Torque steer is a problem if you like jack rabbit starts Build Quality - On par. Love the leather. Not crazy about the top of the dash that seems to develop a chalky residue - common on TLs The subwoofer and rear shelf speakers rattle when turned up - unacceptable Appearance - One of the major reason I bought the car. Love the honey comb rims. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is 'just ok' and only accepts premium. Had no maintenance issues other than the FM radio receives no reception (AM does) and the nav display cannot auto determine whether it is day or not as it should Fun Factor - Overall it is a fun car to drive. Still needs more power (which the 09s now have)

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

Pros: Styling, Resale Value, Dependability

Cons: No keyless start, torque steer

Absolutely Perfect In Every Way — I have not even gotten to drive this car yet and I love it! It has a 3.2 Liter V6 making 258 horsepower and getting over 30 MPG on the highway. It maybe a relatively high- performance luxury sedan, but the cost of ownership is cheap. All you basically have to do is change the oil and put gas in it. The first schedule maintenance isn't until after 100,000 miles! The handling is incredible, as is the acceleration, and it rides so incredibly smooth. It even has navigation and a kickass sound system, with 5.1 surround sound.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast, fun to drive, beautiful, and fuel efficient...what more could you want?

Cons: Wide turning circle, inconveniently located iPod hookup
