2002 Acura RSX Type-S Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This is a great car and I'm happy to
own it. It accelerates nicely and the
interior design is very good. This is
my 4th Acura and I've loved all my cars.


Best Features

Dash lights, they're pretty cool.


Worst Features

The car dies if I leave it for more than 4 or 5 days. I took it to the dealer and they have proven that I'm not doing anything, however, they have been unable to solve the problem as of yet.

Review

Amazing Vehicle. When buying a type-s
the only thing lacking is
comfortability but anyone buying a
performance oriented vehicle should
know the suspension is stiff. Amazing
Car.

Review

I have had my RSX-S for a week now - my previous car was an Acura Integra
GSX. I think the RSX was made to perfection and lives up to the Acura
name for dependability, accuracy and reliabity. The overall handling is stable
and so percise. I was happy with my '99 Integra, but felt it needed perfecting
- since it drove and sounded like a sports car. Now my RSX-S not only gives
me a quiet ride, it is also smoother and more comfortable.

My compliments to the engineer for developing a magnificent vechicle!


Best Features

Wider tires that allow a smoother ride, 6-CD player w/7 speakers, the seats contour my body that feels like a perfect glove fit.


Worst Features

A shiner coat of paint and an outside temperature gauge reading.

Review

WOW! I have had my Type-S now for
several months and am still loving
every minute behind the wheel. The
200HP is really quick, quick enough to
give a S2000 a run for the money this
morning on the drive into work. The
Arctic Blue is very unique, having seen
only one other Arctic Blue in the over
100 miles I drive to work each day.
Also, I get 30 mpg in this car which I
find amazing. I am not easy on the gas
at all either. I upgraded from a 99
Civic Si (electron blue) and this car
is much more put together. I do think
the Si color is slightly better, but
the Arctic Blue is sweet. Despite a few
gripes, this car is a steal for the
money!


Best Features

Seats and steering wheel.


Worst Features

Tilt feature on sunroof rather than one button, auto-up and down on both windows, improved speakers and better tires.
