Review

I test drove the RSX last week expecting to fall in love with it. It didn't happen. I thought the handling was above average even at higher speeds. It looks great inside and out. The 4cyl. performance was quite decent. Overall I have to say that it's a nice toy. On the other hand the visibility is horrible, the seats are uncomfortable as the lumbar support is too prominent and the seat itself (not the back) is too short for taller people. I also didn't care for the layout of the controls.

I bought the RSX about a week ago and I am very shocked. The car accelerates fast but yet I get 35 mpg. It takes awhile to get use of the firm seats. The car turns very well and stops on a dime. I love the red dashboard lights.

Review

After researching similar cars in this class, I decided to go with the Acura RSX. The design is sporty and yet conservative and elegant. The automatic transmission is reponsive and gives shifts with necessary power when climbing steep hills. The sports shift mode is great, if you want to drive the engine and override the manual transmission. The sound system is clear and crisp (it doesn't have that distorted mid range bass that some cars have or ear piercing highs). So far I've gotten excellent gas mileage though i'm still breaking the car in so I haven't hit VTEC yet. Overall a good investment.

I've got a long commute but want to drive something more fun than an econobox Civic. The RSX fits the bill perfectly. Good gas mileage (13km/litre) , good acceleration, comfortable, fun to drive and with a decent stereo. And I've just got a base model! Not tops in any category but above average in all respects. Highly recommended. Considered Celica, Integra, Prelude, Corolla, Civic Si and Sunfire before buying.

Great car, great deal

Review

A great car that alot of people overlook, due to the name "Acura." People were surprised at the good deal I got. The base RSX was in my price range, and the Celica would have cost me significantly more. I have yet to have any problems, and it truly feels as though Acura used the BMW 3 series as a benchmark. The handling is right on par, and the subtle whine of the incredibly smooth engine also seems familiar. Overall I'm glad I didn't overlook this brand. I got a great car that fits like a glove, and makes commuting to work FUN.
