I purchased my RSX in February of 2002
and I've enjoyed it ever since. Love
the ride; however they could have put
better tires on it. This car radio
system should have more watts. I like
how the controls cater to the driver.
I love this car, but I'm planning to
buy the '04 TL!

More watts in radio, heated seats and
mirrors, last but not least better
I have 7500 miles on my RSX-S. Love
it! Two things that set it aside:
First, once you start adding options
to match the "Type-S" package, all of
the competitors (except Tiburon) end
up costing more. Second, it's more
more upright, more refined, less "boy
racer". It's not v-8 fast, but I have
skunked Pontiac supercharged v-6's
before. This is THE best deal-for-the-
dollar in its bracket.
Excellent engine! Drive it gently, you
get great mileage and a smooth ride.
Thrash it and it'll hang in there as
long as you do. Lotsa trunk space for
its size, HUGE glove compartment,
great road holding.
Offer regular (solid) leather seats as
an option. Add more support to the
seat front. The sound system,
especially the 'spare-mounted' bass
speaker, is NOT up to standard. Move
the bass somewhere useful. Better
soundproofing: at speed, this thing is
I would absolutly recommend the RSX
Type-S to anyone looking for a sporty
coupe. In fact, the only thing I
dislike about the car is the lack of
interior storage space (ex. there is no
center counsel) Fun to drive, fast,
and very good on gas. I love it.
The dashboard is very driver friendly
and has an impressive look and feel.
The 6 speed tranny shifts smoother than
most cars I've driven. Lastly, Acura
is a great company, which will take
care of you when you purchase from them.
More interior storage space. Could
handle a tad bit better for how good of
a car it is. More bass for the
