Drive this car and change your attitude.

"I have all the service records. Two sets of wheels and tires: the stock 16" Acura rims with M/S tires and a set of 18" chrome seven spoke rims with performance tires. I bought the car in September 2007 and it has always been garaged."

"This is my husband's hand-me-down. I had a two year older version of the same model that was beaten up in a hail storm. This has been a splendid car. Absolutely no mechanical problems, great AC, good radio and CD (probably better than good, I'm not a connoisseur), great handling, OK gas mileage. I still like the looks of the SRX-s after all these years. It's time for us to get a four-door car so I will have to say goodbye to this baby."

"I've owned my Rsx for nine years now, and love it. Great gas mileage, sporty looking, drives well. Only reason I'm wanting to sell it is to get something a little bigger. I've owned a lot of cars, but this one has been my favorite by far."

Pros: "Fun to drive, very reliable."

Cons: "Broken vanity mirror doors (no big deal)."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The vehicle has been fun. It has been very reliable, other than the dealership rebuilding the transmission due to hard second to third shift. The pilot bearing also gave up, but this is not necessarily Acura's fault. The only tidbit that is minor that surprisingly broke was the vanity mirror doors. The car handles well for a front wheel drive vehicle. The interior is comfortable. The stereo is relatively good for what it is. Speaker placement is good, but clarity and low end are somewhat lacking. I like the small steering wheel and the quickness of the steering. I have mildly modified the car. Lightweight flywheel, intake, re-flash, rear adjustable swaybar, and pilot super sport tires. I love everything I have done, but I want more. I need to put my coil overs on, I hope to get more rotation out of the car with higher rear spring rates. I really made a good decision to buy this car. It is not perfect, but it is very good. If you are looking for something sporty, fuel efficient, and well made look no further."

"Have owned this car for 12 years. Cannot say enough good things about it. Other than normal maintenance, did not put any money in this car until this year. And that was a relatively minor repair."
