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


Review

It's a great car. It has a beautiful
shape. It's extremely comfortable and
convenient inside. I love the
Dashboard glow, it's red. I feel like
I'm driving a spaceship.


Best Features

Dashboard Lights are red.


Worst Features

Should be faster.

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


Review

The good: acceleration, reliability,
tight suspension. The bad: audio
system, road noise. The ugly: insurance
rates. This is a remarkable car. The S-
type is a better sports car, but less
practical if you live in an urban
center. Tall 3rd gear is a lifesaver
during rush hour. It’s a good car to
learn or refine your manual driving
skills. “Precise” is the keyword for a
RSX. Because this car is marketed to
the 20 something crowd, insurance rates
are high (if you’re under 25, expect
your monthly insurance rate to be half
of your car payment). Visit an RSX
forum to hunt for a good dealer.
Overall, no car comes close the RSX for
the price.


Best Features

Acceleration, reliablity, tight suspension


Worst Features

None so far, maybe manufacturer's recommended fuel should be changed to 89 octane, instead of 87. Car feels sluggish with 87.

Review

Let's be honest it is a 20,000 dollar
car so it is not going to come near
something like a porsche or
lamborgini. That being said, the rsx
destroys almost all it's competion,
the only thing that comes close (in
it's price range) is an RX8 and it
loses. THis car is extremely
responsive fun and to top it out gets
great milage. If your looking for a
car in this price range look no further


Best Features

Console geared to driver. Looks interior and exterior. Seats, and Hatchback versitility.


Worst Features

none come to mind

Review

I love the suspension and horse power.
The car was worth waiting for to get
the color I wanted which was the blue
RSX. Buying it through the Fleet
dealer was the only way I would go.
The stick shifts fast and is set square
to the car so I never scratch gears!
The airbags in the side of the seats
are measured to the wieght of the
passanger. They work or the light on
the dash will set and tell you
disabled. Great Coupe.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the tires that come standard and the cd player. The sound is loud with stock speakers. I love the short shift stick. Getting GPS 2000 or the security alarm that calls you when your alarm goes off would be worth it.


Worst Features

I would only improve an option to get xm radio. I end up taking my car everywhere because it is so fun to drive with the windows down and sunroof open. The kids I babysit in the back seat won't tell me that my radio is fuzzy with xm radio because they are used to the xm.
