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


Review

+fuel economy-I really am getting 33mpg
on the highways@70mph
+fun to drive-excellent pick up for a
four cylinder
+multi click driver's side window to go
all the way up or all the way down-very
handy for paying tolls and for parking
lots
-The turning radius seems large, so
getting out a parking spot requires
alot of steering wheel movement
-bucket seats are not that well padded
Minor defects:
The drivers side map light was
sticking, my dealership replaced it for
free, and then noticed that after a
month of driving, the bucket seat cloth
was being pulled from its seams. They
fixed that too without any cost.


Best Features

Excellent cornering, love the automatic climate control in a sporty car, even in the 30-40F cold mornings, the car takes just 2 minutes to warm up the engine enough to start the heater.


Worst Features

+extra padding on the bucket seats +better radio and speakers in the non type-S line +fuel tank cap should just be tethered to the fuel tank rather than "hooked" onto the fuel tank door

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


Review

A great all around car with good
performance for an automatic. My
commute really stinks, so I wanted the
auto for all the stop and go driving.
It's nice to be able to shift yourself
when traffic isn't bad too. My only
real complaint is that the seat bottoms
are too hard. Guess I'm getting old.
The glove box needs adjusted, it's not
flush with the dash. Also, the seat
fabric by the headrest is comming away
from the plastic that surrounds the
hole.


Best Features

Transmission, looks, handling, engine.


Worst Features

Softer seat bottoms. A bit more attention to detail. Shouldn't see the problems with glove box and seat fabric on an Acura.

2002 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Even though this car has nice
suspension, which shows in handling, I
feel every little bump on the freeway
even on the smoothest surface. The
seats do not help since they are as
hard as a rock. It's a fun to drive
car, but the comfort level is this car
is very low. Going to trade this in
and get the new 2003 Accord Coupe.


Best Features

Interior looks futuristic


Worst Features

Armrest is badly needed. The integras had armrests. Make HIDs available.

Review

This car is awesome. What caught my
attention was the styling. The
exterior is so sleek, and the interior
design is very classy. The dash glows
red at night which is so different than
other vehicles. Performance is decent,
0-60 in 6.7 and 1/4 mile in 15.5. It
gets a few looks everytime I go out.
I'm definitely not regretting this
purchase.


Best Features

Awesome dash, great seats with plenty of support. Cool little tray/cupholder combo.


Worst Features

The backseat could use a bit more room, no center console, an HID headlight option would've been nice.
