Car is excellent especially at highway speeds. Moves efortlessly and never looses its feel for the road, nor the sense tha you are in control even at very high speeds

Review

I've had the car for 14 months now and still love driving it. It is a very comfortable car on long trips (though the lumbar adjustment doesn't do much) and the gas mileage is exceptional. I have taken the car on racetracks (road courses in the SouthEast US) several times this past year and the car handles and accelerates as well as most cars and brakes better than most. It has been reliable and proven to be a great value. As I like to drive on-track, I would really like to see a Type-R version of this car come to the US, with limited slip differential, more power, even better brakes, and lighter weight.

Worth every dollar.....

Review

I had test drove the car and was extremely surprised at what I was buying for the price. The performance is incredible and appearance-wise, nothing competes. I'm used to looking at the interior of a newer Mustang and Civic, and when I sit in my car I feel like I'm in an exotic car. It's definately something I DO NOT regret buying.

This is a great car. I tested Celica, WRX, Solara, Tib GSR, ITR, IS 300. and they were not as good for the money. Acura has good quality. I have about 45K and running like a horse. I race many of other cars including Boxter and not lost a race yet!!!

Review

My last love was a car...this one. Have had this sweetheart for 11 mos., and its just about the most perfect blend of performance, luxury and economy (avg. 28-30 mpg in town when the foot's not headed south)available in it's price range. When the iV-Tech kicks in around 6000 rpm it feels like 10 lbs. of turbo boost and will really plaster a grin on your face. Unfortunately, it doesn't last last long enough to the 7900 rpm redline ;-) Overall the few nits are just plain blown away by the upside this ride posesses. It makes commuting almost entertaining (!!) and is a flat-out blast to drive.

Review

The car is everything we thought it would be. good performance, nice looks, good fuel econmy(avg. 25 mpg in mixed driving). The negatives are not huge but are annoying, doors do not lock automatically, seat belt is always in the way when closing the door and bangs against door pillar when you take it off. Needs power seat to make it easier getting in after my wife drives it and has the seat all the way forward,
