This was my first car ever and I enjoyed the heck out of it. It was vivid blue pearl and I had the type-s so the wheels looked amazing as well. The car was definitely a head turner and everyone seemed to like, people would let me thru in traffic (this doesn't happen in something like a bimmer).
It is a Honda so it is reliable as the universe and I had it serviced at Honda (since no Acura dealership was built near me at the time) and I got Honda prices, but Acura prices aren't that bad actually for a luxury car.
It isn't as fast as you'd expect a 210 hp car to be. The problem is you have to wind it up to 6500 rpm to get it going and there's very little torque.
But a fun drive nevertheless
Beautiful car. Wheels, paint, perforated leather interior, heated seats. Red glow in the dash is easy on the eyes.
Holds value like a tank.
2nd gear grind. 3rd gear pop out. This can actually end up being dangerous if not taken care of.
Tape deck is useless. Interior can be prettier.
Seat is a too high and I'm only 5'7. Also it can get uncomfortable on long trips.
A few rattles here and there but mostly fixable.
Soft paint = Chips easy and can start rusting if not maintained.
Maybe it's too beautiful - mine was stolen.
