I just purchased a used RSX from a local dealership and I love it. It is an 02 with 40,000 mi, silver w/ black leather. I originaly had my heart set on the Type S, however, they are hard to find thus they demand top dollar. This car is such a good value. The car looks and drives like new. Plus I got a great deal, $13,200 + tax.
Tight handling, sharp looking, awesome interior (sepecially at night), lots of room for a hatch back.
So far, so good...I purchased this car used and have had a blast with it. Everywhere I research, I hear nothing but good about this car. This is my first 6-speed and I'm lovin' every minute of it. The stereo kicks, teenagers gawk in awe, and not everyone has one like, say, a civic. It's quiet and reserved when I want it to be and screaming hellfire when I don't.
transmission, stereo, rear hatch space, the intense head-turning engine scream at 6000-7900 rpm.
every once in a while it seems impossible to not grind the synchros between 2nd and 3rd even when I think I'm doin' everything right.
I was planning on buying an older Integra GSR and had driven many of them. I thought the RSX was out of my price range but decided to test drive it anyway. After just a 10 minute test drive I had totally changed my mind. The extra money was worth to spend. The RSX-type S handles better, goes faster, and has it's own unique interior compared to the Integra. Taking this car on back roads is the most thrilling ride. It rides like rails around those sharp turns and with the new seats for the RSX you stay right in your seat. It's like it hugs you in your seat. The power is incredible and I love the sound of hitting that V-Tec. For the money you pay for this car it's definitely worth every cent!
Suspension, seats, organization of the interior.
This car is lacking a middle console which would be nice as an arm rest. It also doesn't have the window up option if you have already turned off your car.
I unfortunately totaled my RSX-S recently by bouncing it off two trees at almost 70 mph. There was no damage to the interior cabin and thankfully no injuries. Besides being safe, this car is a thrill to drive. The car is really fun at about 6500 rpms and handles beautifully. The leather interior is comfortable and sporty, especially the red guages. This car is great for the consumer that wants excitement in a safe and stylish compact car. The car is an overall great buy and I would recommend it to anyone in the compact market.
