    My friend let me drove her RSX and I had to say it was a pretty decent car. It felt a lot tighter than my Civic (shifter and handling) but overall speed wasn't that fast for a 200hp coupe.

    For being a faster car, it made about the same engine noise than my 99 Civic.

    I liked it though, but I wouldn't buy one.

    I've driven one with 4 people in it and even with only 200hp and that little torque with the 6 speed it keeps the rpms high enough where its really not an issue driving.

    Get a CL-S6 instead. Cheaper, nicer interior, more power, etc.

    Cheaper? Where? but on the other points yes... except the CL is a lot porkier than the RSX. It also sucks a lot more gasoline. I might well have bought one but the couple I found were asking about 4 grand more than I paid for my RSX-S.

    As for my car, I like it. I wouldn't say it's a car that I want to keep for 20 years because I'm in love with it. More like, it's an appliance car, but it's a nice stainless steel appliance rather than one made of cheap white plastic.
