I just bought my 5 speed Acura last week in desert silver metallic for $10,300 w/42,000 miles on it. For being six years old this car is very stylish. I am a 20 year old just out of college. I needed a car for under $11,000 that looked good and got good gas mileage. The moment I drove the Acura I knew it was it. I was previously looking at wrxs' and eclipses' but this beats them both as far as the money to quality ratio is concerned. One word EXCELLENT!
So far I am averaging 34 mpg. I drive all highway at 60 mph w/ a little town mixed in. Can you beat that? Oh yeah and the looks are great. I also love the loud whine of the reverse gear (manual tranny only).
I love the back end but am not so crazy about the front. Lots of little rattles. Bigger wheels would be nice... but I'm nitpicking, THIS IS AN AWESOME CAR!
