I have owned the 2002 Acura RSX type S for about 1 month. The car does have 17" aftermarket rims and low pro tires. I have been hearing this clicking noise from the front right, by the tire. I know its not the wheels.. This clicking comes on when i press my brakes or accelerate sometimes I did replace the struts and nothing changed. Its getting really annoing.I have also noticed ...

when i stated my car my maintance lights came on what does this mean what should i do. i have a 2002 acura rsx..
I have a question. I have a 2002 Acura RSX and I can't get the darn thing out of park. I know how to do it manually, but I was wondering if anyone knew the permanent fix to this problem. And how much do you think it would cost if I took it to a dealership?
Hello, I just purchased a 2002 RSX from a private party. It is an automatic with 97,000 miles. I wanted to mention some things just to see what you guys might think and if you've had similiar issues... 1. There are 2 small oil seal leaks which I knew about when I brought the car to my mechanic. the seller took $1000 off of the price to pay for the repair. ... Read More
I just got a mailing from my dealer advertising a supposed "super deluxe mega buyout offering!" or somesuch, saying that there's a big demand for used RSXs, and implying that they'd be giving much better trade-in offers for my 2002 RSX than usual. I've occasionally gotten such mailings in the past for my previous car, a Saturn. I tend to assume such things are 99% B.S., but is there anything to ... Read More
I have a 2002 RSX that was recently in an accident. It was hit on the passenger side (right) front wheel/door area. I got it back from the body shop yesterday and it looks great but drives terribly. Among other things, the body shop replaced the suspension and did an alignment (insurance wouldn't pay for the Acura dealership to repair it). Now the car pulls to the right, the steering feels ...

I bought a 2002 RSX with 20,000 miles on it...loved it to death... a month later I was in a minor accident. I brought it to Santa Monica Acura where 2 of the shop guys told me that there was frame damage for sure. 6 months later...multiple visits to both Santa Monica Acura and Brown Bros. I got my car back. Oh yeah, and the frame they were scaring me about? ... Read More
What problems are you talking about? I've had an AT RSX since October of 2001 and have had zero problems with the transmission. (I assume you are wondering about the transmission since you specified AT in your question) Nothing has changed on the RSX from the 2002 model to the 2006 model except some cosmetic changes.
I'm a little concerned that my acura dealer is trying to take me for a ride, and would like some honest feedback from the group. I just took 2002 RSX-S in for a 45K checkup - really just an oil change, tire rotation, and brake fluid flush. Dealer came back and said coolant needed to be flushed (although manual says it is required at 120K), 2 tires are bad although I ... Read More
I can't understand how crappy this car is, my first Acura and my last. I bought my 2005 brand new and as of Jan 2006, I only have 57k miles on my car. ONLY 57K miles? Do you ever get out of your car? :-) HOWEVER as I was told; UNLESS ACURA has a recall on this, ANYTHING outside of the warranty period isn't covered UNLESS Acura has a recall. Suprisingly ...

I can't understand how crappy this car is, my first Acura and my last. I bought my 2005 brand new and as of Jan 2006, I only have 57k miles on my car.

Seeking some advice on this matter, and I'll keep it short. I bought a 2002 rsx with 20k miles on it last august 16, 05 A minor collision sept 16, 05 has me drop off the car to my local acura dealership. I just got my car back Monday - Jan 9, 06 4 MONTHS LATER!!!!!!!!!!! HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN... The short of it is - I was told by the ... Read More
I bought a left over 2002 RSX Type S. I chose Acura because I wanted quality without annoying issues but that's not what I got. I don't have major problems but the minor problems are really aggrevating. Here's what continuously happens that the dealers can't seem to fix: 1. Auto up driver side window pauses halfway up, comes down a couple inches and then stops. It's intermittent and was fixed 3 ... Read More
I doubt it unless they had huge miles on them.... you just can't find an RSX with less than 20,000 miles for less than $15k unless you're super lucky. I bought mine with 20,000 miles (2002) for $14,900 and am very happy to have bought this car (my friend knows the owner of the dealership) I could easily sell it for over $16,900. but hey, enjoy the scion...acura will always be ...

Hey Karen, I used to work with Motor Week and I have a serious love for Ferrari's. It's fun to be an owner of an RSX as I call it my "mini" Ferrari. I didn't expect to get into this car but needed something a little better then my 89' plymouth colt with 163k miles on it. A friend of a friend owns a dealership where they had this 2002 dark ...

trunk tray, splash guards, and leather? Not Bad..I'd be happy about that one. I love my car....I took it to my local acura dealer cause my 2002 I just bought is still under warranty- they changed the front breaks for $220 and spun the rotors. I also had to replace a broken hatchback cover hinge, buy a plastic gas door opener latch by the driver seat (the one you pull up ... Read More

I'm the second owner of a 2002 RSX. I was driving home this afternoon and went to roll down my window. The window went up and down.. and then i heard this loud noise (like someone threw a rock at my car). Then the window went down, but now it's stuck in the down position and it wont go up. Has this happened to anyone else? Everything else on the car ... Read More
Yes, the type-R is better than the RSX-S, with 10 more hp (due to better gas, I think), and the limited-slip differential. However, the RSX-S is more luxurious... it has leather seats, which are too slippery and wide for me (as does the Integra type-S... which appears to be the RSX-S?). The type-R has Recaro racing seats. Also, the RSX-S has a lot of sound insulation. I don't know if the ... Read More
Sure hope so! that Type-R looks very sweet, limited slip diferential, momo wheel, brembo breakes, and this page i found estimates the 0-60 at arround 5.5 secs, but they have a desclaimers that is a power calculation and not from a road test. Macau is very wierd as far as cars go, we get some stuff then don't get other and there are many diferent car dealers, there is no "Honda" ... Read More
I am considering buying a 02 RSX that has a salvage title to rebuild. I buy wrecks all the time so I am experienced at this, but haven't owned a Honda product since 1979 Accord. Price is about $5000 with most repairs done, just needs finish work. Auto, 33K miles. What are opinions on this project? Thanks
Some DUI smashed my beloved 1995 Accord Coupe and I have decided to get an RSX (I should have gotten a Integra back in '95, but we learn from our mistakes - don't we). I have looked at several CPO 2002, but some of the dealers are crazy. Any thoughts between: (1) '02 RSX-S; CPO, 35K miles, $17.8 (Dealer needs to knock of at least $1K before I waste my gas ...

I have 2002 RSX Premium, I removed the original stereo CD and replaced it with an ACURA TYPE-S 6-disc CD changer. Now the volume is very low and I have it turned up all the way?? I know this unit was working fine from the person I got it from…it is missing any thing?
My sister owns an Acura RSX 04 and when she taps on the button to make the driver's window go up automatically, it would always go up halfway and goes back down 1/3 of the way and it stops, but when she holds the button to make it go up all the way the going-back-and-forth thing of the window goes away... Anyone know why is it doing that or is it ... Read More
I agree. I have a 2002 RSX-S and didn't have any problems dd123 mentioned. The shifter is smooth and my car doesn't smell like rotten eggs. dd123, yes the tires suck as does the sound system, but they can easily be upgraded aftermarket at a reasonable expense. If you get a base, I'd recommend the 2002-2004 over 2005 since it's faster (fact) and looks better (opinion) not to mention cheaper ... Read More
Wendy, congrats on your 2005 RSX-S. Keep us updated on how it's treating you (and vice versa, LOL). Nippon, I also agree w/ you that the RSX seats are very comfortable and keep you in place nicely. Also, the crappy Michelin tires are pretty loud on imperfect roads. The engine can get loud when you hit 75-80 MPH. I just test drove the Matrix yesterday (Sat.). I have absolutely no interest ... Read More
I agree that the extra 10 HP that the 2005 RSX-S will have will not be that noticeable since: a.) you need to rev higher (max HP is now at 7800 RPM vs. 7400 RPM that the 2002-2004 RSX-S have) and b.) the 2005 RSX-S weighs about 70-80 lbs. more than the 2002-2004 model. I'm not really digging the triple circles that Acura uses for the new RSX's headlights and taillights. ... Read More
2001 prelude sh with 43000miles and 2002 acura rsx with 18000miles have the same asking price of 15000 dollars cash. I did test drove both of them today but found out that acura rsx was kinda noisy, more like coming from the engine, on the other hand, prelude was very quiet. However, I still can decide which one to take.
Hey, all, just checking in again. I'm getting close to 20 kmi. on my 2002 DSM RSX-S. I also heard that the RSX is going to be updated a little for the 2005 model.

I own a 1992 Acura Legend I bought new. It has been a wonderful vehicle and currently has 176,000 trouble free miles. Fuel efficient; great ride; no rattles or squeeks; great comfort. Naturally, I am thinking about a replacement at some future date, possibly a previously owned 2002 or later. Has the RSX proven to be of similiar quality as the Legend? Any defects that have detracted from the overall reputation? ... Read More
(Posted this on the general RSX forum, didn't get any response, and someone recommended posting here instead....) I've got about 40,000 miles on my 2002 RSX, which is about when someone else mentioned getting new tires for theirs. Any specific recommendations for the RSX (I have the base model, if it matters?) I'm in Northern Virginia, so I'd certainly want something that *can* handle snow, but that wouldn't be the defining ... Read More
Sorry for being MIA for so long. I haven't contacted my dealer yet to see what it would cost to retrofit heated side mirrors into my 2002 RSX-S. Given the terrible and cold winter we've had (again) in the Northeast, I wish I had already asked. : \ wwlccp, just do a search for that part # or description on google and also add "Acura RSX" in the search box.
I had a 2002 GTI 1.8T that gave me so many problems VW had to buy it back under the lemon law statutes. When a coil pack fails, you WILL be stranded (I was 3 times) as the car cannot be driven.

I found a Acura RSX 2002 with 10K miles on it for only 12,995, now the catch, it was in a thieft, the thief took the wheels, rims, and the seats. The recovery company inspected the car and replaced the wheels, rims and seats to all factory ones from Acura. I am looking for a newer car, shold i go for this one???
Hi, I currently own an Integra LS95 with 134K; absolutely love the car. I am shopping around for used RSXs but they seemed to be totally overpriced. It might be that the supply of used RSXs here in austin Texas is low but I know for sure that the new ones are not selling very fast...I've negotiated with a couple of dealers using Edmunds.com TMV (great info thanks!) but could not ...

Ok, I was one of those people and I apolgize, I wasn't trying to sell the guy, just to help. I am not in the business of helping car salesmen believe me. :) Anyways, I believe for most great rates, a score of 740-750 is required. Above 700 you have a shot.

Is anyone else having problems with a strong, rotten-egg smell coming out the exhaust and air vents? I have a 2002 RSX and I can't drive it with the windows down or the fresh air coming in without being bothered by the smell. I've notified Acura and brought it to the dealer several times, but they said it is a "characteristic of the car" and it might go away with time. ... Read More
Hey everyone! I was hoping for some help on the RSX 2003. I currently own a 2002 Honda Civic EX that has been FINALLY claimed as a lemon. Honda is buying the car back from me next week. So basically i'm stuck without a car. I loved the car besides all the problems with it. So since the RSX seems to be very similiar to it i was thinking about buying ... Read More

I remember perusing that Web site when I was in the market (spring 2002). I wound up getting my Type-S from Sussman Acura b/c he was able to beat the then-price, give me a better trade-in value, and was much friendlier to deal with than the slimes at Turnersville. But some of Turnersville Acura's prices are noteworthy: 2003 RSX MT $18,716 2003 RSX AT $19,535 2003 RSX MT Type S $21,716 ... Read More
On the recalls ... Ford has issued 11 recalls on the Ford Focus since it's introduction here. The Civic has had 3 recalls since it's redesign in 2001. 11 recalls vs. 3 is a HUGE difference.

There are NO major or minor differences between the 2002 and 2002 RSXs, except the following: 1.) MSRP is different (e.g. 2003 RSX-S is $100 more than 2002 model). 2.) Firepepper Red has been replaced by Redondo Red Pearl. 3.) The 2003 RSX can purchased w/ the "Factory Performance" package [rip off!]. Check Edmunds' 2003 Acura RSX review for confirmation. There is no official word for when the RSX Type-R will ... Read More
You shouldn't pay more than a few hundred over invoice for either model.

For those of you who are complaining about the RSX blind spot, check out revdrluv's post # 1398 in the RSX vs. WRX forum: ateixeira "Acura RSX Type-S Versus Subaru WRX" Aug 26, 2002 3:33pm He explains how to adjust your side mirrors to all but eliminate those nasty blind spots.
A 2002 RSX-S demo car with 500 hard, test-drive miles on it for MSRP+? Considering that the 2003 models are already on the boat from Japan, one can only conclude that your dealer must have a surplus of Vaseline, and is anxious to use it all on you. If you really like the car and don't mind paying MSRP for it, you might as well get a real "new" one that ... Read More

I purchased a 2002 Acura RSX about 4 weeks ago - love the car so far, but I noticed something very strange this weekend. The paperwork and the dealer both told me that the car was black, and in fact, it does look black. But when I got up close this weekend as I was washing it, I could definately see blue specks in the paint. Upon further investigation, I decided ... Read More
On honda's website, you can compare specifications for Honda models with those of other cars. Two of the categories that are compared are ALG (American Leasing Guide???)Residual Value After 36 Months and 60 months.

When I test drove the 2002 RSX I asked the dealer why is there so much hush hush for 2003. According to them they are coming out with a 4 door version of the RSX. I personally prefer a 2 door coupe. But for some people it may be worth the wait.
Well, while waiting behind traffic at congested intersections on weekend afternoons, sometimes, I like to try to calm down. Armrest is nice at such an occassion. Current models I like on the market (2002) are Lexus IS300, Acura RSX, Nissan Sentra SE-R, Infiniti G20, Nissan G35, ... maybe the Toyota Celica (maybe). Oldsmobile Alero comes rather close for a GM product, but you are talking about one FAT steering wheel and ... Read More
I went to check out the MB C230 (2.3L?) and thought that it was an interesting car. I like the front and also because it's one of the few MBs that have the emblem flush on the hood instead of sticking out. I don't like the look of the back though. In any event, the MB is like US$18k more than the RSX in Hong Kong for some crazy reason, so ... Read More

Right, how many Celica guys liked the old Integra? Get real, you only want Honda-Acura to fail... but the joke would be on you, sales for a 2002/3 3rd-generation Integra would have not been all that bad with one last refreshening. But honestly, the new RSX is mostly better except for a little cheap, irritating details and the overrefined engine/ride. Plenty of Camaros here, and my GM neighbors bought a 2002 ... Read More
actually acura.ca will tell you everything. In the premium package you get leather sits with heated front sits. The price is 28000Can(~18000US) exchange) before tax(31000Can(~20000us) for Type S). Only a few difference from Type S and Premium. Like in Type S 200HP, Acurac/Bose Speakers,...better handling. Type S doesn't have enough bonus over the Premium.

Moderator (Revka or Shifty), can we include the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS to compare with the 2002 Acura RSX Type S and 2002 Toyota Celica GTS? Or maybe also against 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6? I'm curious as to how this refreshed Eclipse does. Thanks.
Shifty, where is the discussion on the 2003 (not 2002!) Acura RSX? Please provide a direct link since you closed my original discussion board saying that this board already exists. Thanks.
I pick up my indigo blue GTI in a few days. MSRP was $20950, I paid $19,750: base model with sunroof, monsoon audio and cold weather package. Once I test drove one and felt the silky smooth power rush with the high quality interior, I was drooling. Even though the upcoming VR6 motor option will have 201 hp, I think the 1.8T is just as fast due to lower weight,plus its ... Read More

Lacks the visual appeal that the Celica and RSX buyers look for. The Celica represents the extreme-design car, while the RSX has that typical Acura palatable blandness, which is also unique - it hardly looks like a 300M in my eyes. The Tiburon? A little VW here, a little Porsche there, a bit of Ferrari...nothing to really call its own. I think the pros refer to this as "cookie cutting" design. ... Read More
Heck, the RSX has been cross-discussed with many other autos lately on Edmunds' Town Hall (WRX, Celica, C230, Eclipse come to mind). Maybe we should create an RSX vs. Tiburon board. In the meantime, I was just stating that the RSX, given that it is *not* as luxurious as the LS430s of the world (simple price check will prove that), should cost less. I'm not saying the Tiburon (I was referring ... Read More
Thanks for the links. The 2002 ITR looks like the RSX; I'm assuming Acura is retaining the Integra name in Japan. The pointed snout of the RSX (2002 ITR) looks nice. Tires look better. But again, from the side, the 2001 Integra had a line; no such line exists in the 2002 picture. I agree on not wanting to see the flamboyant or obviously fake scoops and superfluous curves (latter statement ... Read More
IMO, a car needs more than character lines, and RSX seems to deliver. Tiburon also looks like a nice coupe, but given my behind the wheel experience in various Hyundai cars (Sonata, XG300 and Tiburon, all rental), unless there is something drastically different about it, I might just end up admiring its value, and style about which I admit having a mixed feeling. Honda usually goes for evolutionary simplicity, and I ... Read More
To anyone living in canada- recently my neighbor purchased an Infiniti QX4 in Canada for 8,000 dollars less then the US sticker price, with the same options.

I live about 3 hours away from Canada, so i was wondering if this ... Read More
I still find it hard to believe that the brilliant engineers at Acura (I'm not being sarcastic) would not have caught this "bug", especially when considering that the RSX was being developed for years as the successor to the Integra. If it the break-in period is that significant, is there a chance that Acura would have a recall on RSX-S engines? Even more, is it possible that Acura would release a ... Read More
I bought my 2002 Acura RSX Type S several months ago. The car now has 5,000 miles on it and it is currently in the dealership having the engine replaced.

( About a quart of oil per 500 miles) The dealer ... Read More
According to the Edmunds 2001-2002 Sport Coupe Comparison Test, the RSX-S' turning circle is 38.1', which puts it in 5th place of the 6 sports coupes. RSX-S had a turning circle of 38.1'; VW GTI got the gold at 32.8' while the Eclipse was last at 40.0'. The two bona fide sub-$30k sports cars, the Camaro and Mustang, respectively checked in at 40.8' and 38.1'.

only1harry: JDM already has the Type-R version available. With the Acura badge, Honda opted to call it RSX, otherwise it is still Integra elsewhere. The specs for Integra Type-R (2002): 220 HP/152 lb.-ft, 2596 lb. (w/AC), six speed manual transmission (different from that in the Type-S), LSD and the usual stuff.

I have the 2002 RSX and recently the engine light went on. Took it to the dealer. They said it was an H02S sensor Code 072. What kind of code is that?

The light did go off on its own a day later but still wanted ... Read More
Here it is: My friend and I saw the new RSX by the mall one day and it instantly caught our attention. So we booked a test drive. I really liked the look of the car. However, after I sat in and test drove I was less impressed. I don't have many complaints about the ride. The shifter feels great. To keep the fun going, you cannot let RPMs drop below ... Read More
Arguing for argument's sake can be especially fun when there's only 1 person involved in the argument, but let's not get into that (any further) ;-) Anyway, I understand your point, ligart. I did some programming for a while. Now I don't anymore; maybe that's why I need some more information when driving and listening to my CDs. (For the record, I'm against the ability to surf and drive.) Another use ... Read More
I've owned a 2000 Celica GT-S since its release, and have had a great time with the car. When my wife bought her new 2002 Acura RSX type-S (Blue) shortly after the release date I went on edmunds and furiously tried to defend my Celica on town hall. Stating the fact that I own both cars and did not feel that the Acura was any better than the Celica. Well, my ... Read More

Honda must be run by a committee hell-bent on making it the most banal company on earth. Or all vehicle design and development follows the requests issued by black socks and sandals wearing focus group participants from the Midwest. Either way, Honda's latest offering is the much anticipated Acura Integra replacement, the Acura RSX. For some odd reason the marketing wizards at Acura deemed it wise to sever the last attachment ... Read More
Go to google.com and search for "2002 Acura RSX" and the first few sites that show up should be Canadian reviews and specs. for the RSX.
Just received the 2002 RSX brochure yesterday from Acura and it mentioned that the RSX now uses a timing chain instead of a belt that should last the life of the engine. Thats one less part to replace. Some of the things I noticed are the auto up/down power driver side window. Curb height (5.9") for the Type-S, 6" for the Base. Thats pretty high? Artic Blue and White Pearl are ... Read More
I did a comparison between the 2002 RSX and 2001 GTS. I big thing I noticed was that the RSX has 5 inches LESS rear head room!!! I know from owning a GTS - there isn't much room back there. SO, 5 less inches gots to be tight!

Impressive driving on your part, I'm sure, but I'm not interested in racing a WRX--I'll be busy making money with mine (if I even buy one). Besides, at 3200lbs. the WRX needs to go on a major diet before it'll be competitive with hard-nosed club racers. You might want to keep a watch out for the STi version, though, when it arrives in 2002. Since this is the RSX forum, I ... Read More
