Before purchasing this car, I drove
and considered the following: Eclipse
GT, Celica GT-S, Volkswagen GTI, Honda
Civic, Honda Accord Coupe, Pontiac
Grand AM GT1. The Acura is so far
above these other cars in every way,
I'm still amazed. The build quality
is astounding, the materials used
inside are very nice, not just cheap
plastic. Buying experience very easy,
there are no options other than
useless crap you buy at the dealer, so
finding the right one is easy. If
you're looking for a car with NO
compromises, this is the one. Very
fast, handles extremely well, lacks no
features, and still gets almost 30MPG
in the city.
Refinement, handling, acceleration,
interior materials, reliability, gas
I'll echo what everyone else says:
Need a center armrest. That's it.
(If they do add one, you can bet it
will be available from Honda/Acura to
retrofit older RSX's)
I love this car. Had it for more then
2 months now. I did a lot of research
and it's the best car in it's class. I
could have chosen Celica or WRX but the
best car for me was definitely RSX Type-
S. I think Celica GT-S looks better but
cost more with same options as RSX. WRX
is more practical and faster but i
don't like the styling, and don't need
the added complications of AWD and a
Turbo. I ended up with RSX because it's
fun to drive, handles great, relatively
luxurious, gets good gas mileage, and
has a very reasonable price.
200 horsepower iVTEC engine sounds very
nice, especially at 5800 rpm and up.
The everything about the interior is
intuitive, perfectly placed, and looks
Leather could be a little better
quality. 16 inch wheels one inch
smaller then I'd like on Type-S.
Styling is on the bland side.
I recently was a owner of the new
nissan 350z but sold it due to the
high insurance on it and gas, so I
wanted a car that was resonable on gas
and insurance but yet sporty. I looked
at many cars but now I found as
intresting as the rsx. The biggest
reason was it was a really fun car to
drive and it felt really fast. Ever
since I purchased it I loved
everything about even the 7,900 rpm
I love the feeling when the vtec hits
in, it just sucks you into the seat.
The car makes you want to drive it
fast it just asks for it. I love the
design of the gauges and the shifting
is amazing on the manual transmission.
What I wish that acura could improve
on is to have the types s more like the
type r of japan.
i am a master auto tech and this is by
far the most fun car i've driven in 10
12 years of driving.the shifting is
effortless and it handles like a M3
but half the price. all i have to say
is 100 H.P. per liter naturally
aspirated.unreal if everyone could do
that the morning commute would be a
pole position. go drive one and see
for yourself. P.S. chicks are drawn to
red illum. 6 disc changer;6spd
trans.;sexy looks,200 hp
17 in wheels,armrest,better bass from
sub.more center console storage.
After drooling over the pictures in the
brochure and staring at every other RSX
on the road, I finally got my own
beautiful Arctic Blue Pearl Type-S.
This car is incredible. The interior is
classy and refined, and the exterior a
joy to look at. The ride and
performance are excellent, made all the
more enjoyable by the sound of the
exhaust. For the money, there is no
Being the envy of all your friends, and
getting the ladies' attention. Driving
was never this much fun!
