I have owned an Integra and the RSX blows it away. Every aspect of this car has been thoughtfully crafted. The interior is very clever and simple, and the leather seats are comfortable and supple. The exterior does not suffer from over-styling, but presents a sleek and aggressive stance. I have not had any problems with the car whatsoever. This has to be the best compact car on the market.
My RSX-S is great to drive both on the interstate and around town. The car is practical and we have used it to move all sorts of stuff as the backseats fold down. Performance is unbelievable!! As the rpm's go higher, the power really kicks in and it is a blast. It would be nice to find a curvy road with no cops around!
Stick shift is wonderful, precise and smooth. Handliing is great.
Some less road noise would be better. also an adjustable suspension to make it less stiff when driving on non smooth roads.
When I bought this car I was very impressed right away by its spectalcular performance. The gas is avg for a 4cyl, the interior is a little cramped but still is stylish. The exterior is like a very sportier Honda look but I like it. The red inteior lighting for the dash and speedo looks very awesome. The CD is just avg though.
Performance, Gas, Standard features
Better stereo system, little bit quieter interior noise
Always heard about vtec but never experienced it. What a motor!!! Gives you great acceleration with good fuel economy, 31 on long trips. There's even some room in the back seat, unlike the Integras! The only thing I wish would have carried over was the double wish-bone suspension, other than that, love the design. With only intake and exhaust I beat nicely modded DC2s (Integras) even some type-Rs. There's a lot to choose from when it comes to aftermarket stuff, so the set ups for this car are almost endless. Just beware of the insurance, it's a bit high!
the motor and tranny. And those awesome seats
suspension, go back to the wish bone set up, and that damn second gear grind!
I bought this car used in March, 2004. They hold there value well, but there seems to be alot out there. What I like about the RSX-Type S is that you don't seem them everywhere. They seem to be unique.
Great pick-up from Zero. Great corning, high RPM Redline, when your on the fwy and need to pick-up speed to pass someone you can just downshift to 4th and step on it, and it feels like a mini rocket.
They've done some great improvments with the 05's Softer ride, 10 more horsepower. New front and tail light styling, and 17inch wheels.
