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


Review

This car offers luxury and comfort right from behind the same company that brought us the Acura Integra. It's sporty look combined with it's performance offers more than meets the eye. The Acura RSX is trully one a kind car that should be a part of every adventurer's repetoire.


Suggested Improvements

Offer more power at lower level RPM Come stock with a turbo charger

Review

I upgraded from an Integra GSR to this baby in March, and I'm amazed at the improvement from the 'Teg to this car. This car has just about everything I wanted, from a nice interior to an engine that wailed like a banshee. (Gotta love that 8000 rpm redline combined with i-vtec). This car also crushes most of its competition performance wise...Toyota, Mitsu, VW and Hyundai's competition for this car is chopped liver as far as I'm concerned. And while Subaru's WRX is slightly faster, step into the interior or look at it from outside and ask yourself if you really want to be seen in that car.


Favorite Features

i-vtec rev happy motor, leather seats, standard 6cd changer, excellent build quality and feel


Suggested Improvements

Bring the Type R to the US!

Review

this car is extremely fun to drive. good quality interior, designed to surround the driver. well bolstered seats, fine leather material that offers good comfort and lumbar support. bose stereo does a fine job,although maybe not par for those seeking aftermarket subwoofer lows, but fine for us folks appreciated quality, clear music. climate control works wonderfully, very powerful. the nightime dash lights are a wonderful red, making the gauges easily readable. the shifter is effortlessly moved from gear to gear, making full use of the engine. has everything a 25yr old guy needs who has fun to drive, practicality and reliability on his mind.


Favorite Features

cockpit design, bose stereo, engine


Suggested Improvements

rearward visability is diminished due to c-pillar design

Review

My last performance car was a BMW Z3. It proved to be too impracticle for most purposes so it had to go. I wanted to find a car with the same performance but usable interior and trunk space. Well, I found it! The engine, transmission (6speed) and brakes/suspension are all world-class. Plus, you can actually haul stuff with it. Lot's of stuff. Oh, buy the way did I mention? It runs like it looks...FANTASTIC!


Favorite Features

100hp per litre! Looks like a million. Build quality is a 10. Fit, finish and quality of materials also a 10. Nothing breaks!


Suggested Improvements

Usable center armrest. Better tires. Michelins are too small (205x55x16) and are all weather rated ie, no good for performance (they're noisey too). Goodyear RSA's would be a better choice. 215x50x16 should do it or 225x45x16, even better.
