Review

I just picked up the car last night and I've already put almost 200 miles on it! It's just SUCH a BLAST to drive, and it's so TIGHT, and it fits me like a GLOVE and I could go on and on and on, but I have to go for a drive!


Favorite Features

shifter, engine, seats, suspension, stereo, dash, everything


Suggested Improvements

could use heated seats, limited slip diff, traction control. But it's cheap! If you want that stuff, get a 3.2CL Type S 6-speed!

Review

This car is incredable! Coming from a Civic I thought the RSX would be similar to it, but I was very wrong. Acceleration and handling are spectacular. Zero play in the wheel. The suspension is tight, which makes the ride a bit bumpy, but what do you expect from a sports car? The only thing I miss is the almost 40 mpg highway from my Civic, and I've never gotten the sticker 31 highway in the RSX, more like 27-28 (probably from going too fast).


Favorite Features

Too many to list.


Suggested Improvements

Red instrument lights. The red digital odometer sometimes makes me think the brake light is on.

Review

This car is a whole lot of fun for the money. It handles very well and the engine sounds great (especially when the vtec kicks in). The interior is very nice and the stereo sounds pretty good too. The Type S has every available feature standard and in my opinion it is the nicest sports coupe available for ~23k. Highly recommended!

Review

The seats are probably the most comfortable and most supportive I've ever experienced. The steering and shifting is top notch. The ergonomics are superb. The engine is a gem. The old Honda's lacked low end, but the i-VTEC motor really improves all around driveability. The car screams when pushed. The handling is very good. Though I feel the tires give. If this car had better rubber on the rims the driving experience would improve drastically. All in all a great car!
