After looking into Celicas, Eclipses,
Civics, and RSX's, I finally chose the
RSX. This car has been the best car I
have ever had! It is quick, sporty,
and extremely reliable and fuel
efficient. I have had absolutely NO
trouble with my RSX, and have found
Acura's customer service excellent.
The interior of the RSX is very
stylish, as well as the outside. All
of the gauges, knobs, etc. are really
easy to access and look cool.
Magnificant car!! I've had 2 Honda's,
an Integra GSR and a Subaru and this is
by far the best car I've ever owned.
Honda/Acura is famous for it's quality
but this takes it to a new height.
Every dial, switch, and button is
perfect. The transmission is smooth and
precise. No matter how fast your going,
the car want's to go faster. I've never
driven a car with as stable and
confident ride. I seems to steer itself.
Too many to list all - everything is
fantastic but if I had to, the
combination of a perfect transmission
and excellent power make this car
extremely fun to drive.
The only tiny complaint I might have is
that if you hit a bump in the middle of
a sharp turn, the car gets a little
unstable but on the whole the handling
is fantastic. The car drives itself -
you need almost no effort to take it
though the hardest turns.
My radiator blew half way up Pike's
Peak highway during a vacation to
Colorado. My RSX was only 5 months old.
We had to have it towed down the
mountain and to a local dealership. It
was fixed, but not before half of our
trip was ruined. The worst experience
was trying to deal with the Acura
Roadside Assistance people to get
reimbursed for some of our travel
losses. After speaking to several
people, none of whom cared, and writing
a long letter detailing my experience,
I finally received a short response
that said little more than "go to
hell". The car has been adequate since,
but this experience will keep me from
buying another one.
The look, the red dashboard lights, the
sport shifter, and gas mileage.
bumpy ride, occasional rotten egg smell
coming from vents (explained as having
to do with the low emissions feature),
and lack of pickup and sometimes
stalling when I first start it after
being idle for awhile (only happens
when it's hot outside).
