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


Review

I've had two Integras and this car by far is the quietest as far as road noise goes. Better handling, killer brakes, short clutch. You cannot find a nicer car for 20K with the features and reliability.


Favorite Features

Handling and brakes


Suggested Improvements

Not so cheap trim, better storage for CDs, it has a pretty nasty blind spot too.

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


Review

I love this car. I got the stick shift. It is so fun to drive. Very quick. Best transmission I've ever driven; the thing shifts like butter. I did a ton of research on comparable cars and this was easily the best buy for my money. The Celica didn't even compare.


Favorite Features

Ease of shifting. Smoothness of engine at high RPMs.


Suggested Improvements

Wider rims and tires should be standard.

Review

Bought this car almost a year ago. Fun to drive, great handling and good power for a 4cyl. Can be noisy on highway, but not that bad. Great car for the price we paid.


Favorite Features

Sequential sportshift is great if you want to get up and go in a hurry. Gets great gas mileage on highway. Just took a 3000 mile road trip in it and got ~36mpg on average!


Suggested Improvements

Arm rests on inside of seats, would make long drives more comfortable.

Good sports car for people who are tall. Plenty of room inside. Sleek and clean interior design.
