Best Car for the money

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


Review

I am so pleased with my rsx. I was never too into cars, but i knew i wanted performance, luxury, advanced features for a great price. It was the first new car i ever bought. The shifter is like butter, speed is great, did great in the winter here in buffalo too. Sound system is great. If i had a quirk with it, id say the seats could use for comfort. But it is a sports car.

Review

Out of the door the tranmission would grind, had it back in shop within 250 miles, told that transmission needed to be broken in. 2600 miles, transmission is being replaced. Car squeaks and creaks like my 94 Ranger.

a real sports car

Review

I love my type-S. This car is not for everybody. It's engine is buzzy, the suspension is stiff, and the gear ratios are very close. This is a real sports car. The Bose system sounds great, I don't know why there are so many negative reviews about it. Interior controls are high quality, and it get great fuel economy (I get 28mpg combined). The best thing about my car is the engine and transmission combo. Can't beat the beautiful engine sound teamed with such a smooth and sporty 6 spd.

2003 Type S
By S^S on 05/16/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

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


Review

I felt the type S was the best combination of practicality (FWD, hatchback, MPG) and fun available for a reasonable price. The engine is smooth and revs like a sport bike, but makes no torque. Power is: Econo car <3000, Adaquate 3000-6000, Small Block 6000- 8000. Sounds fantastic when approaching red line, but can get tiresome on long trips. I'm getting 26- 30 mpg while driving it hard. Great trans except it grinds going into 2nd when cold and shifted quickly. Interior is ergonomically near perfect with superb sport seats and 3 spoke wheel. Good feel to steering with sharp turn-in, but brakes are a little soft.

Review

I absolutely love this car. I can't wait to wake up every day to drive it, and I have had it almost 2 years! I usually trade my cars in every year, and there still is nothing even close to this one so I am keeping it even longer!

I love the car. It combines the practicality of the hatchback, good gas milage and moderate price with the prestige of the Acura Name and a great ride to the office.

Noise

Review

Very happy with vehicle. One problem, at 140km/hr(85mph)a low frequency noise eminates from somewhere on the drivers side of vehicle. It is not a constant noise but intermitent. The dealer thinks it's wind noise, but it sure doesn't sound like it because it is not high pitched. Has anyone had this problem. Thanks
