I have owned this car for 6 years and it still runs great. The gas mileage is on par with most civics of this time. This car is still comfortable and was a great investment I made. Couple of months ago, I thought about selling my car and getting something bigger, but since gas prices went up I changed my mind.
I love the VTEC in this car. When you hit that sweet spot of 4400 rpm, you feel a surge of power. You also have superb trunk space since you can fold down the seats. I fit my computer desk in the trunk once.
I just wish that Acura would have brought the Japanese version of the headlights over to the USA when they redesigned the headlights in 1998. The Japanese headlights are more to my taste than the circle headlights.
