This car is an absolute dream. I picked my 05 Black Type S up for invoice price! The Type S has what feels like an endless supply of power. I drove from Chicago to Indianapolis right after I bought it, and had problems keeping it under 90mph, it just wants to get up and run. I love the attention this car brings... I'm a single 23 year old male, and I don't mind the looks I get from girls who see/hear the Type S. It's fast, and looks classy... almost like a baby Ferarri.
Beautiful engine, the relativley small torque number is not noticed, because from 3000rpm on up this thing screams! Love the 6-speed transmission, so smooth and easy to drive. Love the looks and the very comfortable drivers seat.
Very minor, not necessary things I would have added to it - Limited Slip Differential, heated seats, XM satellite radio, and HID headlights... all can be done aftermarket, it just would have been nice to have them stock (especially the HID's)
This being my first coupe had to be the most exciting. It was the 1st car I laid eyes on as I walked out onto the lot. I was impressed with the ergonomics of its compact yet stylish design that says, Hop in and Go! I will say while the engine loves to rev, the ride can be a bit tight and bouncy, but in this particular car, thats what gives it that race appeal. On the inside, Acura did an outstanding job on the leather seating, simple yet functional. The controls on the dash were again simple, but tied into the whole theme of the vehicle. I did think for this class of vehicle, Acura could have beefed up the audio system, which was not bad, but could be better. All in all, this was a good buy.
my favorites were the fold down back seats, the holder for the gas cap.The sunroof was great being that it was a standard feature.Perhaps the most appreciative feature was the auto climate control which is normally found on cars a class above.Last but not least, the V-Tech engine, low maintenance.
Better audio system, a trunk release button, fog lights (should be a standard feature on this type of vehicle)
I bought mine a month ago, and it's been a blast. The car rides great for a smaller vehicle. THe interior is quiet, the bose sound system sounds almost perfect. The seats are comfy and the trunk has plenty of room. This car is fast and fun to drive to work. I spend about 2 hours a day in my car and this makes driving something to look forward to. Test drive it and find out for yourself.
interior, 6 speed transmission, headlights
rear seating is lacking, not much cargo space up front.
