Great car for what it is.

Let's start with what it isn't: - It isn't a supercar. At least by the standards of today. 290 hp was pretty good back in 2001, but now is less than a current Nissan 370Z, or a Porsche Cayman S, or a BMW Z4. And it's WAY below a Corvette or a 911 or a Ferrari. So if you have to have the fastest car around, don't buy an NSX. - It isn't an investment-type car. While they hold their value pretty well, I don't see them ever appreciating like a classic Ferrari. - They aren't cheap to repair. They are VERY reliable, but when things need fixing, and eventually something will need fixing (especially with an older NSX) the parts and labor aren't cheap. Now let's talk about what it IS: - It's one of the best looking cars out there. Period. It's an elegant and timeless design that will still be just as gorgeous 20 years from now. - It's a wonderful compromise for a sports car. Enough HP to go 0-60 in 5 sec. (That's fast enough for me) yet I can easily get 18 mpg or better in city (Chicago) driving. Try getting that kind of mileage in a Ferrari! It's comfortable enough for a long trip, yet feels perfectly at home on a race track (which I've done). It's exhilarating to drive, yet easy to drive (it's 6-speed is as easy and slick as my old Miata). If you want to putter around town it will drive and act like any Acura, but when you want a thrill, take it up to it's 8000 rpm redline - the sound is AMAZING! To summerize, the best description I can give for this car is it's very Porsche 911-like with exotic looks and the reliablility of an Acura. If that idea appeals to you then by all means buy one. You won't regret it.
