The vehicle overall is a good buy. It gets decent gas mileage (25 combined on premium), interior, and styling. I was disappointed that the dash started cracking even though it was garage kept most of the time. The car is black with tan leather and you would think for a vehicle donning the Acura badge that the build quality would be better. I consulted the local Acura dealership about it and they wanted to charge me $1,800 to replace the dash. This is absolutely ridiculous and I would think that the manufacturer would replace something like this. Other than this issue, the car has been a reliable vehicle to own. Service costs are above average. I have had to replace the rack and pinion due to a leak near the base of the steering column which cost me $1,200. The Bluetooth hands free stopped working about a year or so of owning it and I don't think it is worth the money to replace.

Bought this 6 speed manual with low mileage and owned for 10 years. Like any Honda made vehicle, it was dependable and required just routine maintenance to drive like a dream. This car was loaded and the only option was navi or no navi. Mine had one along with heated and perforated leather seats and moon roof. Plenty of power and styling, this car was truly ahead of its time. I was sad to see her go but got great value out of it, especially because it had the manual transmission.

Great vehicle

by from Brooklyn,NY on July 25, 2017

If you are young and you like speed this is vehicle for you. Probably best choice for the price under $8,000.

Best car I've ever owned.

by from Plano, TX on July 14, 2017

Performance and handling was that of a sports car. The auto to manual downshifting let me zoom around traffic and drive like a maniac! I freakin miss this car!
