Wow, what a car... Kept noticing it in my neighbor's garage, and finally asked him about it. He told me he bought it new and boasted how it was designed by NASA. I asked why he wasn't driving it. He said the ABS light was on and the windshield was cracked. He bought a new Civic Hybrid and was not driving the Acura. I needed a commute car, because my SUV at the time was getting 17 mpg. And long story short, he sold it to me for $300.00.
My neighbor kept all the service records. This car still has the same engine, transmission and clutch at 256,000 miles! I saw a guy with my same exact car the other day, and boasted to him how I had 256K miles. He said, "that's nothing, mine has 430k on it."
The ABS light was on due to the alternator being bad. I bought a new windshield and cloth interior (leather was shot) off Craig's list for $200.00.
I get 25 mpg, drive it to work 70 miles round trip at an average of 80 mile per hour. What a car! The on-board computer is great. People keep knocking on my door asking if I want to sell it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
