1998 Acura NSX Coupe T 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

Dash lights should have more variety at night. Mine has no cupholder at all.

Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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.

Review

once in a lifetime you're able to drive an exotic at merely a luxury price give the nsx a try. great driving thrill on curve or staight . Acceleration is truly exhilarant . Balance is amazing -I felt glued to the road on curves. While the cockpit is comfortible my bald spot atop my 6ft 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 $90's.

Review

This is my second NSX-T... 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.


Best Features

Handling, styling, eye-catchiness, sound of VTECH at full throat...


Worst Features

The stereo is dated and has never sounded that great anyway...
