Best car I have ever owned, which is saying a lot since I have had 69 cars. Beautiful from every angle, everyone wants to see it up close and ask about it. Many people have never heard of it, but most assume it is 2 or 3 years old and costs 100K or more. It is confused with a Ferrari a lot. It is comfortable, handles like it is on rails, great stereo, convertible. We drove from Colorado to Austin, never below 75 mph, and never got less than 26 mph.
Aluminum body won't ever rust, targa top is great.
V6 gives good gas mileage.
Amazing handling with all day driving comfortable seats.
Metal resists door dings, I have none.
Build quality is amazing, it still looks, sounds, and drives like it is new, even with 80k on it.
Exhaust note is great.
Extremely rare, only 245 made in 1998.
Dash lights should have more variety at night.
Mine has no cupholder at all.
In this day and age where you see Bimmers and Porsches everywhere it's amazing how many heads a 15 year old design turns. True marks of a classic. Besides the looks the car is an absolute thrill to drive. The brakes are amazing, the road feel is unmatched and the engine hits right where you need it.
The smile it put on my face everytime I get in the drivers seat. Simple design, while this car has everything it needs to be comfortable the cockpit is not clutered with nobs/light/lcds and other usless stuff like most luxry sports cars.
I wish they would improve the radio. I have yet to see an aftermarket installation that matches the clean look of the OE stereo. However having a tape player in a 90k car in 2005 seems a bit dated.
once in a lifetime you're able to

truly exhilarant . Balance is

frame kisses the targa roof. This car
seems to hold a good resale value. I
picked up a 98 in flawless condition
for 50k. Not a bargain but given the
slight design and performance changes
over the last 12 years I feel like i'm
driving a new car selling in the
The NSX is simply the greatest value
EVER in an exotic sportscar. Why it
has languished all these years with
steadily declining sales and
production numbers is a mystery. Of
course, stories of things or people
who were not appreciated in their own
time are legion. Where else can you
get the excitement and style of a
Ferrari or Lamborghini, performance to
match those two great names, but yet
pay no more than a Honda Accord to
maintain it and insure it?
The NSX is truly a niche car, Honda's
proof to the world that they can build
a real supercar... and still bring it
in at half the cost of the competition.
Handling, styling, eye-catchiness,
sound of VTECH at full throat...
The stereo is dated and has never
sounded that great anyway...
