2004 Acura RSX Type-S Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

After driving a Corolla for 150K miles, it was time to buy something fun to drive. I test drove the GTS Celica, Tiberon V6, GTI 1.8T, Jetta 1.8T and 6, Mustang GT and the Eclipse V6. Needless to say, I chose the RSX Type S based on performance, comfort and that all important "Fun to Drive" category. After 1 year and 23000 miles, I have nothing but praise for this car. Sure it is not the fasted thing on 4 wheels but it offers tremendous performance and quality at a price that puts it in a league of its own.


Best Features

Seats, Shifter, Climate Control, Handling, and Ivtec.


Worst Features

Would be nice to have the stereo controls on the steering wheel but I can live without it. Mirror that don't drip water constantly after washing.

Review

I have been driving this car for quite sometime now, and all I can say is WOW! This car is amazing. My dad gave me an option on what car to buy between Acura RSX Type S or Hyundai Tiburon. I made the best choice I believe. The only problem I had with this car is the stereo. I don't know about others but I like bass, and this car's bose system doesn't give you that. One 10 inch sub for this car and you will be bumpin. Other than that...car is amazing!


Best Features

DOHC V-Tech Engine Leather Interior 6-Speed Manual 200 HP IS 300 Killa!


Worst Features

Bose System-needs a sub Body-needs to be lowered 1 1/2 inches
