Car is not overly comfortable on long road trips. Rear visibility is poor. Blind spots are bad for lane changing. Backup camera is a must (I added this myself). Rear seats are small and cramped and uncomfortable. Hard to exit the car gracefully. Parts are noticeably expensive (had to replace starter recently).
Car was sold in April 2016 and not replaced by another vehicle
I owned this car for 8 years and loved it. Such a great value for a car with all of the main luxury items you would want. I never had any major mechanical problems and always had fun driving this even though it was a stick and I lived in LA. Had to trade it in for a more family friendly car last year, but still miss driving it!
Hatchback is great -- lots of space for transporting stuff.
4 seats are pretty decent size for a small car.
6 speed transmission is so fun to drive.
Stereo with Bose subwoofer in the trunk is awesome!!
Bought my Type-S used with 29k miles in 06. 3 years later and now with 83K miles the car still drives great. Very reliable, great on gas, with few bolt ons car will give you a run for its money. I have driven the car hard for 3 years and never gave me any problems.
Seats, handling for fwd, high revving motor, 6-speed.
leather quality, stereo, height. But I took care of all those things.
I have owned Hondas all my life, every version of the Civic or Integra imaginable. This RSX Type S was very disappointing. The 6 speed transmission was a major problem for me, and I brought it back to the dealer several times. These cars notoriously grind 2nd and 3rd gears, and when I brought it back to the dealer they claimed that they could not "replicate the problem" Engine is awesome, suspension is killer, but the tranny is a huge problem! Beware when you purchase!
K-series engine baby! I-vtec will break the tires loose at 7k rpm. Suspension makes you feel like you are riding on rails!
