Purchased used in 1998 with 67K miles 5 speed manual trans not auto. I am the second owner. Clutch was replaced at 60K miles by previous owner. Vehicle currently has 118K miles and still runs like new. Exterior still has mirror shine with the exception of bubble spots above rear wheel well and around windshield. No rust, just bubbles. The bubbles were there when I bought the vehicle. Quality interior: no cup holders, but this was designed as a sports sedan not a family vehicle. Carpet, floor mats, and upholstery still looks like new. Bose stereo ok. Easy to replace with aftermarket if you desire. If you are considering buying one you will not be disappointed. MPG 22 city/29 highway premium.
Quiet engine, handling, horsepower to weight ratio. It is easy to reach 120+ mph before you know it! Comfortable seats. Peace of mind knowing that this vehicle will last another sixteen plus years with regular maintenance. Honda dealers can perform maintenance on this vehicle.
Any improvements were addressed and implemented on future Acura models. This vehicle is easy to maintain for the backyard mechanic, yet elegant enough to drive that special someone to a romantic night on the town. If you are in the market for a good first or commuter vehicle you cannot go wrong here
