Pros: "Fun to drive, very reliable."

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

"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."

"And money was not an issue, it would still be this car. That's how much I love my RSX-S. I've had her since fall 2006 and have done only 82,000 miles, so I'm glad that I'll be able to keep her for another decade or so. Snag one if you can guys since RSXs seem to keep their value :)"

"This car is a lot of fun and very reliable. I have a 2002 base model and love it!I have owned it for a while and have had to do 0 repairs. Stay up on the routine maintenance and it will run forever. I looks great and drives even better! It is a great car to tune or just leave as is. This car is also a perfect first car to own because how sound and easy this car is to drive."
