2002 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've had my 2002 RSX for about 6 months now and I have to say this car never ceases to amaze me.The interior is beyond what I expected; the seats are very comfortable, there's tons of leg and head room, all the controls are at close reach, and best of all is how smooth the car is shifting through gears.The car accelerates through 6500 rpm's like a knive cutting through butter; its smooth, quiet, and continues to deliver power all through the rpms, not once hesitating.I also am impressed with the exterior styling, unlike the celica with those hideous curves and horrible wheels; the RSX is well thoughout.The car is suttle but has an aggressive look. Overall the RSX is a stunning vehicle!!


Best Features

My favorite features are: the seats because they give you that true sports car feel, but still retains the comfort of a luxury car. Next are the factory wheels; there are no other cars out that come with a better looking wheel. Last is the handling; it hugs corners far better than ever expected. A++


Worst Features

No complaints here. I dont plan on giving this car up for a long time. The reliability of the RSX is everything I expected from Honda/Acura. This truly is the best sports coupe out if you are in the price range of 18k-24k! Thanks to Acura for such a great car....

2002 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have owned many cars, but owning this
car has been one of the best
experiences I've had yet. It has
worked flawlessly, is fun to drive (5
sp), and gets great mileage on reg gas
(29 mpg avg, 34 on trips). Only
complaint is excessive road noise -
only a problem at freeway speeds.
Engine and wind noise are minimal.


Best Features

Performance, shifter, unique interior, excellent treatment at dealership.


Worst Features

More sound deadening material to reduce road noise.

2002 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is phenomenal, I would
sincerely recommend this automobile to
anyone who is in the market...There is
ample space for at least 4 and plenty
of cargo room. As far as performance,
it has exceeded my expectations daily.
There is no car in its class that comes
close in comparisons, PERIOD!!


Best Features

Leather seats, definately worth the dollars!! And the OEM body kit I got with the car


Worst Features

Tire choice from Acura, the only downside was the weak Michelins!!

Review

I have put 18,000 miles on my 2002 base
over 2 years, and it is still a blast
to drive! Handling is excellent, great
shifter. Yes there are cars out there
that are faster, and cars that are more
luxusious, but for the price, this car
delivers both performance and style

It is great being able to drive it
normally and have a great daily driver,
getting over 30 mpg, but have a 7K RPM
redline in reserve when you want to
punch it! The interior is well laid
out.

Overall (performance, price,
reliability), this car compares well
against the competition: Celica,
Eclipse, GTI, WRX, Mini-
Cooper, Tiburon.


Best Features

Auto-up and auto-down driver's side window BEST SHIFTER EVER great handling good MPG, uses regular gas Acura reliability good daily driver, but FUN when redlined big sideview mirrors quality interior reasonable price


Worst Features

All suggested improvements are Very Minor (I am nitpicking): Crappy stock Michelins gotta go! Paint on front seems to chip easily stock stereo (headunit) is poor slight notchiness in 2nd gear

Review

I recently purchased a 2002 Acura RSX
base model was let me tell you its the
best car that I've ever invested in. The
car has an awsome exterior design,
comfortable and sporty interior and an
power train that is sure to satisfy even
the harshest critics. This vehicle
deffinately turns heads (esp w/the
ladies) the 2 12" subs, and the Acura
dealer installed Comptech Catback
Exhaust system aid in that...I love this
car and I'll be sure to have it for a
long time to come.


Best Features

Stylish exterior & interior Powerful Engine Amazing Bose sound system and Comptech Cat Exhaust Sys Handling is similar to $50,000+ sports cars


Worst Features

MORE HORSEPOWER, MORE TORQUE!
