Overall, a great little car

ReviewFor those reviewers complaining about the lack of luxury features, realize what kind of car this is supposed to be. This was Acura's entry level car, not their flagship. About the tranny, I know many other sport compacts that have the same tranny issues. After 3 years, I still love this car. In stock form, it's pretty bland, but I've taken care of that. Performance is so so if you don't hit the hot cam, but handling is above average. The rear can get pretty nervous when the roads get rough. This is NOT a long haul vehicle and not the greatest for city and/or bumper to bumper. The stock stereo is pretty weak. If u don't go crazy, 34 MPG is easily attainable. Overall, this is a good car.
Best FeaturesSound of VTEC. Potential of the K engine; just a few simple mods turn this into a diff car.
Worst FeaturesBetter stereo. Do a better job of distinguishing the Type S from the base. Wish they'd given USDM the Type R variant.
