To have this car in my garage, and drive it whenever I want, is a dream come true. This is my 2nd NSX, my first one was a white 1993. The 2004 is amazing. I have the yellow/yellow. The paint on this car is flawless. Just an amazing car in so many ways. Love the fact that not many people "get" what this car is all about. It's not about power, it;s about balance. You have to own one to understand. I have owned many cars, but nothing compares to the NSX, and I will have it for years to come.
Where to start, everything. The most comfortable, easy to drive, easy to maintain supercar EVER.
Some people might say more power, but this car has just the right amount. I love it, just the way it is.
What can I say? This is the exotic all cars that have come after it have had to set as a benchmark in terms of reliability and performance, and many cars costing twice as much still fail to meet the goal 15 years after the car was introduced.
Looks, exclusivity, confidence I can get it in tonight and drive across the country without worry I will make it.
The original styling (1991-2001) was a somewhat better looking car overall, and I would like to have seen the Comptech Supercharger I had to add be a standard equioment item from Acura.
I leased a 2004 NSX this spring. This car is
had several Legends in the past and the
NSX carries on that tradition. I now have
3000 miles on the car and it only gets better.
It is definitely faster than when I first received
it. It is the easiest manual transmission I've
ever driven--ratios are perfect, gates easy to
hit, throw is short and silky, unfortunately, my
wife loves it. The brakes are strong. The
acceleration is very good, but my son says
the Z-06 he has driven is much faster. The
handling is superb though, and the steering
is very precise. The fit and finish is better
than my wife's Lexus and the paint is
Engine sound at 8000rpm, steering, ride is
comfortable for a sports car, 74 mph in 2nd
Need to update radio antenna(vintage 90's
power antenna), in dash CD player instead
of trunk mounted, Ipod adapter, and of
course--more power would always be
In all it is a fun car and it turns
heads. I don't like the fact I need to
but a new set of tires every 7000 miles
and also that the horsepower is not up
to speed with the rest of the exotics
in the class. Maintenance wise it is
an incredible purchase and a very
Handling, one of the best handling cars
I have driven in my 15 years of driving.
More horsepower to compete with the
Viper, E55 and M5. It is starting to
lag in the horsepower war.
