2003 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Great little sports coupe. Handles well and engine seems to enjoy being pushed. There's very little low-end torque, however it picks up once you get moving. Exterior design is very well done. Interior materials could be better -- leather feels cheap and seats are uncomfortable over long distances (I commute an hour to work each day). Comes with some excellent features -- power mirrors, cruise, AC, auto-stick that round out a nice package for the price. Fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Honda reliability can't be beat. Excellent styling.


Suggested Improvements

Heated mirrors, more comfortable seats, better sound system (possibly the worst stock system I've ever heard), and more low-end torque. These are minor gripes though.

2003 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Having owned the same Civic for the past 12 years, I wanted to stay in the Honda family without breaking the bank. I couldn't be happier with the RSX. Plenty of power for my needs and I'm absolutely in AWE with the steering, braking, and transmission.(and I even like the stereo, especially the CD) SO fun to drive. For me, this car does it's job PERFECTLY. And I know it will for years to come.


Favorite Features

Steering, transmission, and simple clean lines of the interior.


Suggested Improvements

none

Review

Being the owner of the Base Auto RSX, all I can really say overall about this car is it's a wonderful driving experience. The automatic Base version of the RSX drives very smoothly and I would recommend it to anybody looking for a sporty and aggressive-looking daily driver car. This car has great handling, excellent brakes, a sporty suspension and great fuel-economy as well. If you're a sport-compact car fanatic, I seriously recommend the RSX, especially the Type-S.


Favorite Features

-Looks Aggressive, simple climate and audio interface, awesome silver gauge cluster, and after-market tunability to reach better levels of performance.


Suggested Improvements

One area that the RSX could improve is the availability of body colored underspoilers on the base auto models, instead of the black plastic underspoilers.
