First off, the car is great, and everything you could ask for the money, HOWEVER, the road noise is horrible. The trunk and glove compartment rattle non-stop and the dashboard creaks when it is cold. I have taken it to the dealership 3 times and nothing has worked. I am thoroughly dissapointed in the overall quality. I was told that "its a commuter car and is noisy". If you don't mind the noise - buy it - if you do, run away fast.
The sportshifting offers a great sporty performance. The overall look of the car is very pleasing.
Get rid of the road noise - from inside it sounds like you are in a cheap car, not an Acura, which claims to be a luxury brand. I understand that it is an entry-level model, but this is unacceptable.
