Overall I'm happy with the car. My first car was an Integra, then I drove a Pathfinder and I'm happy to be back in a two door coupe. That said, the Type S isn't as good on gas as I'd hoped and it's downright treacherous in the snow. Snow tires are needed on this car. My only other real complaint is that it doesn't reach a decent speed until you rev the heck out of it, but that's the V-Tech way. Oh ya, the V-tech chip fried a month after I bought it (I bought an 02 in 06). I love the red interior lighting, the short stick and the six speeds, although at times it seems like I'm shifting way too much. Acura really just packed six speeds into 200 HP here as a gimmick, but it can be a fun one.

Best Features

Short stick, red interior, six speeds... sometimes.

Worst Features

Somehow make it better in the snow.
