Alot of bang for your

Vehicle: 2004 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)

After researching and test driving an almost endless number of automatic coupe/hatchbacks I found the Acura RSX to be the best bet. It has awesome handling and acceleration extremely well for being a 4cyl. 160hp. Another selling point for me was the high safety and quality ratings that the RSX has. Also, in the long run the RSX has a higher resale value over the Hyundai Tiburon, Toyota Celica and VW Golf & GTI. What the car lacks in back seat room it makes with by having a hugh trunk.

This model is surprisingly quiet. It doesn't have gobs of power, but it pulls to speed fairly quickly. Handling is precise and the quality of build is really nice.




Great, quality sports sedan

Appreciate the dual personality of RSX. Drive careful, and I have consistently achieved 38-40 MPG; "get on it" and she runs with the best of them. Handling is superb; quality, fit and finish are absolutely outstanding; tire noise is a bit excessive; radio reception is disappointing, but teamed with XM Radio the radio is 100%. Especially appreciate the dealer. An absolutely fine, professional organization. My only complaint was the aim of the headlights. They were pointed immediately down in front of the car; the dealer adjusted the aim, and now the lights are terrific. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality, 2 passenger sports sedan.




Fun to drive

THIS IS MY FIRST TIME WITH ACURA, MAZDA HAD ME FOR 6 YEARS. BUT THE RSX, MAKES YOU FEEL YOUR DRIVING AN EXPENSIVE FOREIGN SPORTS CAR. SUSPENSION IS FIRM, on THE ROAD IT HUGS IT. ENGINE IS SUPER FINE AND QUICK; VERY QUICK! INTERIOR IS BUILT LIKE A COCKPIT; JUST SIT BACK AND FLY DOWN THE ROAD. NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD WANT A HATCHBACK, BUT IT'S SO ROOMY, MY MILANO RED SEEMS TO DRAW ATTENTION FROM EVERYONE, FROM KIDS 18 TO SENIOR'S 65 AND OLDER. LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST IS THE "SPORTS SEQUENTIAL" TRANNY... I LOVE IT. AUTOMATIC WHEN I WANT and MANUAL WHEN I AM READY TO PLAY. FANTASTIC! ACURA HAS ME FOR THE NEXT 3 YEARS, AND MORE IF THEY KEEP IT UP. CHAS L. BKLYN NY
