I've been driving my RSX since 2002, and still love it. It's been wonderfully reliable, without a single significant mechanical problem. Performance is excellent, especially the i-VTEC. Good cargo capacity, and hatchback can handle large/bulky objects better than you might expect.
Performance, handling, acceleration on highway, FUN
Stock stereo and speakers are mediocre. Stock tires are also mediocre, which I discovered when I replaced mine with Yokohama AVS dB S2 tires, for a noticeable improvement in handling, as well as significant noise reduction.
