Owned a base 2004 RSX for 167k and had minimal problems with it.
Ownership has been painless and low cost. At 167k the engine is still strong, the transmission (auto) is slowly showing signs of wear but I think it has another 30-40k in it.
Just great engineering.

I owned this car for 8 years and loved it.
Such a great value for a car with all of the main luxury items you would want.
I never had any major mechanical problems and always had fun driving this even though it was a stick and I lived in LA.
Had to trade it in for a more family friendly car last year, but still miss driving it!

Bought my Type-S used with 29k miles in 06. 3 years later and now with 83K miles the car still drives great. Very reliable, great on gas, with few bolt ons car will give you a run for its money. I have driven the car hard for 3 years and never gave me any problems.

Bought it used in 2008 with only 24000 miles. I noticed it gets very good fuel economy at around 35 mpg highway @70mph. The acceleration is moderately quick though the automatic version I have lacks low end punch but I feel a much higher kick above the 3000 RPM range. It handles very well in most situations. Although the inside is more sporty than luxury, that's what is expected. I overall think its better than the majority of its competition and worth a look.
