Still driving having put 10k on this beauty over 7 years, and little more than new tires, brakes and occasional battery or filter. Poor mileage (23 hwy) when driven to Calgary, Canada in January 2004, but otherwise perfect, esp. over Montana. Five-speed manual offers great handling and leather/electric everything is superb. Needs some body work, but only drive in summers, so no problem. G

I bought this car when it had 245,000 miles. I have continued to drive it without any major problems. It now has 279K. The car is 17 years old and still is holding up to the New York winters. Little exterior rust. Interior leather has not held up good through the years, cracked and needs to be covered over. Engine still has some get up and go in it.

I bought my Acura when I decided to go back to school and didnt want a car payment. I bought it outright from the dealer and have to say Ive never been disappointed! For a 15 yr old car, it handles well, accelerates quickly, is good on gas, requires little maintenance (mostly wear and tear stuff) and looks brand new after a wash and wax! Out of all the cars Ive owned, this surprisingly is one of my favorites (and I've had quite a few!) I was thinking of selling and buying a new car, but it's hard to part with something so comfortable and reliable that still looks so good. For a car that I bought on a whim, Ive been pleasantly surprised at what a great value it has been...

I bought this car from its original
owners about 1.5 years ago--since
driven it 44,000 miles (total of
194,000). Rides well, very
fast--hard to cruise at less than
80 mph. Acceleration is authoritative.
The car handles passably at a
modest pace, but front wheel drive
discourages enthusiastic driving.
Quality of interior materials is
excellent. Control layout and gauges
are superb, simple to operate. The
seats are comfortable and supportive.
DO NOT expect parts to be cheap for
these cars--many parts are now special-
order. On the other hand, this car has
never left me stranded.

This car has always been a minor pain -
2 climate control sampler fans ($),
light switch ($$), transmission control
module ($$$), power antenna quit. Then
all hell broke loose last year -
transmission rebuild ($3.000!!) Didn't
have another car ready, so had work
done. Now it's making a noise which
might be a pinion bearing (would be
major $ again), and the radio has
stopped completely (no power to it at
all). The leather is definitely sub-
standard, and has worn poorly, for what
this car cost me when new.
