Loved this car, recently sold it to upgrade to an RSX type S. Handled great, shifted great, and you can't get that 8000 RPM scream anywhere else. Also had lots of cargo space. I know lots of people dislike the 4-headlike look, but I'm not one of them.
Handling, power, versatility and incredible reliability and resale value. In 120,000 miles, had to replace one wheel bearing. Other than regular wear and tear, that's it. Interior may have been boring, but it held up great. I have a hunch that the zoomy interior of my new RSX won't be as durable.
Steering is a little light for this kind of car. Reduce interior noise, increase torque and design an interior that looks like an Acura. All addressed in the RSX.
