2003 Acura RSX 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.

Favorite Features

Acceleration, reliablity, tight suspension

Suggested Improvements

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