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

Review

I set out to buy a replacement for my 87 Integra, which itself had been a great car. Test drove MB C230K, Celica GT, & RSX-S but chose RSX as best overall for engineering, performance, ride, build quality, fuel economy and purchase value. I loved my 87 Integra, so naturally I make comparisions. The RSX weighs 400 lbs more, has a 25% larger engine and gets the same gas mileage (32 mpg average), amazing. The exterior stying is a plus but the interior shows some negatives relative to the Integra. In spite of the longer wheel base and body, access to and comfort in the rear seat is poor. Road noise is worse, I believe due to the cloth cover over the hatch area.

Best Features

Smooth precision drive train, good ride and excellent performance and handling. Good mileage on regular gas.

Worst Features

Offer the 6 speed manual trans on the RSX. It would probably aid the 160 hp engine more than it does the 200 hp.
