I bought the car 2 days ago,I own a rsx- s as well, which is also a great car, but i needed a car with good fuel economy since i drive 140 mi. round trip to work most days. I like leather but the cloth seats are so comfortable i could fall asleep. the clutch works great and it shifts smooth as well. I am used to a short throw transmission, but the EX is fine. The drive by wire throttle system takes some getting used to, i am not used to the rpms "hanging" while i shift, but you get used to it. so far I'm at 220 mi, and i still have half a tank! I'm 6'3 and its hard for me to see the speedo because my hand is in the way, so i adjusted the steering wheel lower.
Gas saver, Transmission (get the 5 speed)im sure it still as good of gas mileage as the auto. Styling is good, ive already gotten lots of compliments. Fun to drive.
Ill probably improve the suspension down the road, car sometimes feels heavy when turning, but no worries. The gauge cluster does take some getting used to.
