The NSX first made in 1991 was the first real Japanese challenger to the favorable European sports cars such as Ferraris. The best part about the car is that it possesses a unique combination of race-car engineering, performance, and looks, coupled with the refinement and practicality of a luxury coupe. This car can go from 0-60mph in 5.8 seconds. Not only does it fit most personal wants and needs, it also costs less than most sports cars and has the best visibility of any exotic car. There is plenty of interior room and the dashboard is user friendly as Acura has displayed before.
The NSX was also introduced to me through a popular video game…Gran
Turismo. In it, the NSX was given practically the highest standard of driving in the game and is a favorite for many who enjoy the game. But whether it be a real car or just some pixels on a screen, this car is one of the safest, most reliable vehicles on the road. Although there is no planned safety test, there had been many reports of accidents where most cars would have been totaled and yet the NSX that was involved is still on the road today.

Manufacturers believe a warranty--their pledge to absorb certain repair or replacement costs over a specific period--is a big selling tool. It allows them to tout engineering advances that make their cars more reliable and to talk about assembly quality. We don't recommend choosing a car simply for its warranty, but it is a factor that should weigh in the buying decision. To help, here is an overview of how factory warranties work and what they generally cover. The description box below notes the major features for this manufacturer's model. Factory warranties are divided into specific areas of coverage:
Basic Warranty: This usually covers the entire car, except for the tires and battery, which are warranted by their manufacturers. Other important exclusions typical to basic factory warranties are normal wear and maintenance items (oil, air filters, brake linings); damage from the environment (hail, floods, other "acts of God"); damage due to improper maintenance (incorrect fuel or lubricants); and damage caused by the owner or vehicle occupants.
Extended Warranty or Service Contract: May be sold by a dealership or other private companies. This covers a specific period beyond the basic warranty. Extended warranties usually apply to the car's powertrain, which consists of such major components as the engine, transmission or transaxle, fuel system, turbocharger, drive shafts and related parts, and the transfer case on 4-wheel drive vehicles. Powertrain warranties usually exclude the same sorts of damage and maintenance items as the basic warranties. While some have retained extended warranties, most import makers include power coverage under their longer basic warranties. A few extended warranties also cover major systems, such as air conditioners.
Deductible: Domestic manufacturers charge owners a deductible for warranty work performed after the basic coverage has expired. The deductible is generally $100, usually the owner pays the first $100 of each repair made under the extended warranty and the manufacturer pays the rest.
Corrosion: This is warranty protection against perforation rust, in which sheetmetal is eaten through from the inside, and against surface rust, which starts on the outside and works
