It's the best thing next to driving one of the more expensive high end vehicles. I have owned Honda's before never thought the higher end of the spectrum would be this enjoyable. I really have to give them kudos for this design.

This is the one

by from Flint, MI on July 5, 2017

Its is very fast for a 4 cylinder, comfortable even though it has no racing seats and runs flawlessly. I have no complaints.

This is the perfect sports car for someone looking for a sharp ride and a low fuel budget. The 2.0L 4 cylinder engine provides more than enough power especially when the vtec valves open up. One of the most reliable cars I've ever had. I'd definitely recommend it to a person not liking to have more than one other passenger on a normal basis because the back seats can get a little cramped.

First car I owned. Sporty car that was fun enough to drive but still have lower insurance rates. The suspension is very stiff because of the car being somewhat performance oriented. It is stiffer than I prefer but I still enjoy the car. The FWD hurts the performance aspect of this car severely. The manual version of this car is a great car to learn stick on. The manual also has a much sportier feel than the automatic. It's a simple, but very good and fun car.

Great first car!!

by from Cincinnati on April 9, 2017

Great first car!! I've had it since I've graduated from high school (2012), and I've never had any major mechanical problems with it at all!! Would recommend Honda/Acura products to anyone!

What a car!

I originally leased my Acura RSX Type-S in 2004. When the lease ended, I couldn't find any other cars that matched its performance anywhere near its price point and ended up extending the lease and subsequently buying out the car. It has lasted be for 11 years and was still driving great. After 70K miles (mostly city stop-and-go Los Angeles driving), the only real work I had to do on the car was to change the brakes and eventually the clutch. The car still drove great when I sold it. The car isn't the smoothest drive, but more than makes up for it in its superior handling and pickup. The Type-S also comes with every feature you could want standard. The only feature I wish it has was an aux-in line but the Bose cassette player (tape adapter plugged into my iPhone for music) served as a decent work around. The Bose sound system provided wonderful sound that made the long drives around windy roads that much more enjoyable.

Comfort is adequate. The type-S can get a little loud when you twist its tail but you'll love the 8100 rpm redline. The engine is among the finest ever built. Ten years gone and Acura has gone green, but the k20 remains a shining example of what once was possible. Reliability is Unearthly. If you don't ruin the engine with a turbo it will go forever. Handling is incredible. Whatever tires you use are the limiting factor.
