2003 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

I've had my RSX-S for about 18 months and found it to be very reliable and great on gas (26-33) even if you thrash it. Great interior design and the hatchback provides loads of space. However, some things are starting to annoy me: The seats are great for holding you place around corners, but get painful after about 1 hour as they are hard and flat, Third gear can be hard to engage, The engine basically makes little power until 6K and after that gets really loud, Stock tires squeal around even moderate speed turns.

Favorite Features

Great MPG, reliability, interior design and practical hatchback versatility. The cars is loads of fun flinging around corners on winding roads. The engine does make considerable power from 6K-8K and doesn't seem to mind the abuse. This car is quick, but not really fast.

Suggested Improvements

The car is flat-out uncomfortable for long trips due to seats, stiff suspension and noise. Trans can be finicky. No power until 6K.
