2002 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
We replaced a 2000 Eclipse GT with this RSX-S. While this car has a sweeter sounding though less powerful sound system and very nimble handling, I still miss the the Mitsubishi. You can't beat a torquey 6 for power and smoothness. This 4 will get you there ok but the revs combined with a choppy ride and cabin noise is just too busy for my taste. There are some mechanical and logistical kinks that need to be worked out. The low gears are balky in cold weather, our right side inner CV joint boot keeps coming off which allows axle grease to splatter onto the hot exhaust and the engine oil filter is poorly situated which guarantees a mess after service.
Favorite Features
Very good handling and sight lines. Quick and economical. Crisp articulate sound system.
Suggested Improvements
Five inch subwoofer? You've got to be kidding. Less road noise. I don't smoke but how about an ashtray and some front storage spaces.
