Waking Up

Review

Impulse buy. Loved the looks in and out. Now I'm waking up. Engine is good - for a motorcycle. Ride is good - for a hay wagon (brutal if pavement is not perfect). I'm a 6'5" driver who has no head room and no legroom... I thought Acura was a luxury brand. I want my Passat back!

Biggest Bang for Your Buck

Review

The new RSX fixes the few problems the Interga had. The best improvement is the seating. These seats are built for americans. They are large and comfortable, compared to the old integra. Furthermore, the 2 1/2" of additional height helps me from not hitting my head on the ceiling. This car is really complete also. The only options I had added to my fire pepper red Type-S was the rear wing, the upgrade wheels and the fog lights down in front. It is an incredible car; leather, great sound, 100hp per liter with under 3,000 lbs, hot as a pistol and all for under $26K!

I bought my first Type-S in March, a silver one w/ a spoiler and then in June I bought an identical black one.. what can i say, i look this car. this is my first time driving manuel, and it's so easy. i driven other maunel cars since then and nothing compares. it's very sleek. I've put in a system, tints and chrome rims on the cars since i've got them and they look awesome

Review

I wanted a front-wheel drive car (I live in MI, SNOW!), decent gas milage, something I could have fun driving to work, but refined enough to take a girl on a date. Out of all these requests, I ended up with the RSX Type S. This car is shear "WOW!" I'm a tall guy (6'4") and I fit comfortably in this car. I had one factory assembly issue with the steering wheel column cover. I just re-assembled it easily and all is fine. Other than that this car is exactly what everyone writes about it. I don't need an arm rest because I never take my hand off the shifter. I love driving and love this car!

This vehicle has performed very well. It is great to have a car with climate control, an awesome sound system, good gas mileage, and some real power that can be tapped when necessary.

I LOVE THE RSX-S!

Review

There's nothing like the feel of i-VTEC roaring in your ears as you down shift into gears. The car has great handling and unbelievable power for a 4 cylinder engine that's naturally aspirated. Honda's engineering prides in their normally aspirated engines. Till the day I can't put my hands on a steering wheel, I'll be behind the wheel of a Honda.

FALLING IN LOVE !!

Review

THE FIRST TIME I DROVE THE RSX-TYPE S I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT, FROM THE SPORTY EXTERIOR TO THE INTERIOR WITH ALL THE CREATURE COMFORTS. I ACTUALLY ENJOY MY 120 MILE ROUNDTRIP COMMUTE TO WORK!!!! THE HANDLING IS SUPERB EVEN IN SERIOUS RAIN STORMS. I HAVE A 4 YR. OLD CHILD WHO IS ALWAYS WITH ME SO THE SAFETY ISSUE WAS A BIG ONE FOR ME. THE LAYOUT OF THE INTERIOR IS MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS CAR, EVERYTHING IS WITHIN REACH WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE ROAD. I RECOMMEND THIS CAR TO EVERYONE BECAUSE IT FULFILLS ALL EXPECTATIONS AND THEN SOME!!! I FALL IN LOVE EACH TIME I GET BEHIND THE WHEEL (MY HUSBAND HAS TO BRIBE ME TO LET HIM DRIVE!!)
