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

Review

I've owned this car since I was 16, and am now 26. Bulletproof reliability, only the A/C compressor has failed, twice. RATTLES/RATTLES....and more rattles. Maybe I never noticed or cared when I was younger, but this thing rattles like no other, the Tweeters, dash, trunk, doors, glove compartment I could go on, they all rattle. I feel like the car is going to fall apart when I hit a pothole. 2002 stock seats are terrible, NO support Hard seat bottoms. Replaced with seats from a 2005, much better! With all these issues, I cannot get myself to let it go, I don't think I'll ever sell this car.

Best Features

Manual transmission is the 3rd best I've had the pleasure of using. (1st=s2000, 2nd=FR-S) vtec cam switch never gets old as does reving to 8k rpm. Handles great with A-spec Suspension.

Worst Features

LSD, better brakes, steering feel. Build Quality, rattled way too much, maybe that's why they stopped making it.
