Just bought a new Type S and couldn't be happier. If you're looking for top performance (i.e. extremely fun to drive) at a very reasonable cost, get this car. It has great acceleration and handling, and working the clutch is extremely easy. The 6 spd is great for the hwy mpg (city mpg is not 23 btw unless you drive real slow. figure about 18-20). Couple issues with the car is it can be a bumpy ride on non-smooth roads due to tight suspension. Also, engine gets loud at high rpms (redline starts at like 7500). In terms of construction, the car is a rock. The Type-S is 100% made in Japan (most Acuras are made in the USA now).
Acceleration, handling, styling, reliability, value. Surprisingly decent gas mileage for a sports car.
None, you get what you pay for, and it's a lot. Acura needs to make a rear-wheel TL.
