I like small cars and needed something
with an automatic (I have a bad knee),
that would hold its value well, good
performance, gas mileage, comfortable on
long trips and able to occasionally
carry bulky items, like a 32" TV set.
I found the RSX to have the best
combination of a small engine with an
automatic I have ever seen. It's not a
racer but it is quite lively and
I also get as much as 32 MPG on the
highway but only 16-18 in town. (Heavy
right foot, my fault.)
In all, it's the perfect car for me.
Lively performance, great gas mileage on
the highway and very comfortable seats.
Have the CD player handle MP3s and make
the engine a *little* bigger for just a
little more low end torque.
I have owned the car for 6 months now
and still greatly enjoy driving it. It
has good exterior looks, acceleration,
fuel economy, and comfy interior. The
automatic climate control is nice for
maintaining a constant temperature
without having to mess with the
controls all the time. Interior
lighting is impressive. Acceleration
is best in manual mode with the
standard coupe (non S-type).
Only minor complaint is that the
steering is a bit stiff. Otherwise it
is a great car; comfortable for
commuting but lots of fun on an open
Interior lighting, lights up the
control in a nice looking red glow.
Soften the steering, it is just a
little too stiff.
This car is perfect in every way. For
those who wish to use it for a high
class economy car for lots of
traveling, this car is perfect. And it
has enough power to make it a fun car
to race or just push to its limits.
Handling,engine sound and strength.

ebony and titanium cloth seats.
