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.
