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


Review

My choice was between the Jetta
1.8T and the RSX Type-S. The Jetta
offered more low-end torque, but the
RSX blinded me with smooth
handling and beautiful interior. Just
like a Lamborgini, the tach and
speedometer dials point down. At
night, the mesmorizing red glow of
the dials appears completely uniform
across the dash. Not all looks, you
feel every bit of the 200hp with the
I-VTEC engine.


Best Features

DESERT SILVER!! Shifter as smooth as butter. quiet ride


Worst Features

one touch window controls for passenger side, controls (blinker knob, windshield wiper knob, emergency brake) could be smoother

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


Review

This car is the ultimate sports coupe
at this price range. This car is very
fun to drive! The acceleration is
unbelievable and it is extremely
powerful; it dominates on the road.
Many heads will turn when you drive
this car. The interior is beautifully
designed and the bose sound system is
very rich sounding. I heard some nasty
things about the Acura dealers, but the
dealership i went to was great. Bottom
line: This is the best car you can get
at this price range.


Best Features

The interior, and the standards such as in dash 6-CD changer, and the sparco look-alike racing seats. Roomy trunk!


Worst Features

Small back seats... but what did you expect?

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


Review

Pure fun, great flexibility. Drives
smooth & easy or blasts when
appropriate. Smart, functional
cockpit. Makes driving to work fun.
Suspension just right, stiff enough to
hang a corner but not jar your teeth
on expansion joints. Perfect fit and
finish. Only my BMW can match the
gearbox for shifts and feel. Most
enjoyable machine.


Best Features

Wonderful clutch. Real breaks.


Worst Features

Could use better speakers.

Review

This is a very problematic car. A lot
of them are having big problems. If
you really want one wait until 2003 or
2004 models, so that they work out all
the bugs.
