This is my 2nd Type S & still impressed. With the hp bumped up to 210, it performs very well. Turn-ratio & handling are great. For a high torque coupe, it still gets good mpg, but it does require premium unleaded. Like other owners say, the ride can be extremely stiff so watch bumps in the road very carefully, seriously. I like how Acura upgraded the wheels to 17s, but wish they kept the original headlights, since that's what initially caught my eye. Interior hasn't changed, still sleek. The fold-over rear seats are a huge plus, but rear seating is narrow. As long as required maintenance is done (which is HIGHLY recommended), it'll be faithful. Definitely reliable, fun, & a great value.
Pros: awesome 6-speed horsepower for a 4 cyl, great looking interior, tight handling, the standard luxuries (moonroof, spoiler, 6-disc CD changer, Bose speakers, leather seats), can do long road trips, great value.
Cons: Wish it wasn't discontinued. While it can be a pro for some, its torque & high rev definitely makes it noisy while driving. Suspension could be tweaked to absorb more road impact; interior could have added a sunglass compartment; premium unleaded gasoline puts it at a disadvantage with some.
