I bought my RSX right after I graduated from college. It was essentially a present to myself for securing a decent paying job. Five years later, I still absolutely love my car and wouldn't trade it with anyone. I'll probably have it for at least another 5 years. The cost of ownership is insanely low; in five years I've only replaced the tires and brakes. With 3-4 oil changes per year, my car has treated me right.
It's just a nice car to look at. It's even more fun to drive.
Heated seats & GPS naviation. When I bought my car, these weren't too common. My next car will likely have these features.
