I have owned multiple Hondas, and traded in a 1994 Accord EX to get the Acura. I have also owned a smattering of vehicles, all purchased used. This one is, by far, the superior car. Basic maintenance only, and still commands attention around town. The interior never fails to please anyone it surrounds.
I like driving fast and aggressively, particularly on the twisties found up in the mountains. This car has the unique ability to attack an apex, as well as coddle the kidneys on freeway expansion joints and uneven pavement. Not too soft, not too firm.
Not much. I suppose it could use a strut tower brace to keep it level during hard cornering. Where's the 3.0 mated to the 5-speed, Acura?
