2002 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

i love my RSX. its a great car. i used to drive from toledo to detroit everyday, so my RSX now has almost 78000 miles. it runs perfect, and have only had to do minor maintence, except for some transmission wear issues. when the original air filter was dirty, i replaced it with an Injen Short Ram air intake system which really helped the car out. it sounds excellent, but city mileage has decreased slightly. the car is plenty quick at the top end, but low-end torque is lacking. more displacement would be great, as well as a screw- type supercharger. i also have energy suspension motor mount inserts that really helped the wheel hop problem.

Favorite Features

interior design, sound, feel, fun to drive factor, shifter, seats, no understeer or torque steer, ease of modification, stock light(er) wheels, clean exterior design.

Suggested Improvements

leather wear on seats, rear visibility, low-end torque(i'd give up about 10hp for about 10lbs ft down at around 2500rpms), BETTER TRANSMISSION RELIABILITY, crazy fuel guage, better damped suspension, flimsy stock rear spoiler, runs "rich", electronic rev- cut at standstill.
