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.

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


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.

Review

The 2002 replaced an 89 Integra which had 171,000 miles. It is an overall excellent car - but - somewhere, somehow it has lost the little edge that the Intrgra had. It just isnt as fun to drive. I have a Base and use it to commute to work 42 miles a day. The engine is peppy enough. Handling is fine.30.3 MPG. So far no problems.


Best Features

Overall car itself - nice package.


Worst Features

The rear shelf that attaches to the hatch is a pain. Go back to the old shelf style.
