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


Review

This is a great car for the money.
The interior is beautiful in its
simplicity, the stereo is perfect, and
it's fun to drive. I still can't get
used to the weird body design since I
had two Integras before it that were
frankly much easier on the eye.
However, the driver-oriented interior
more than makes up for it. The
perforated leather seats are very
sporty and elegant. The engine on
this little car is great & kicks in if
you know how to drive a stick
correctly. It is also SO reliable!
I've never had ONE problem w/ any of
the 4 Acuras I've owned.


Best Features

Leather interior, stereo system, 6- speed, fun engine, great customer service, extremely reliable, tight steering


Worst Features

Body style is kinda ugly, suspension needs help, even more oomph in the engine would be great, better headroom in back, more choice in interior colors, get rid of plastic on interior of doors and replace w/ leather!

Review

I owned a Toyota Corolla GTS for 19
years and 300,000 miles and was hoping
to buy another Toyota but the Celica
rode like a bucket. Researched for two
months and this is the best car for
what you get. Many wonderful amenities
and it's just plain fun to drive, plus
the styling is elegant for a sports car.


Best Features

Great interior set-up, red dash, climate control, Bose 6-CD in-dash, plus cassette, moonroof, best location for cup holders when you're shifting, climate control, seat adjustablity, etc.


Worst Features

Automatic shut-off headlights.

Review

The enigne block was cracked after
5,500 miles. I took it in becuase it
was leaking oil. They replaced the oil
filter. Still something wrong so they
had to "call" Acura to find out the
small block was cracked. Seriously. It
took 17 days to fix and when I was
intially told I could get it the
dealer said my car was not ready
because my engine was "laying in
pieces on the floor". Not a comforting
thought. They clutch just went out at
45,000 miles and they would not
replace it for free because it is a
wearable part. Well, I guess the
enigne is "wearable" too but it still
does not go bad after 5,500 miles. The
seal around the driver's door was
coming undone.


Best Features

I will let you know when I get something else.


Worst Features

Build better cars. I bought and Acura not a chevet.

Review

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


Best Features

SPORTS SEQUENTIAL TRANSMISION, REAR END " VERY SPORTY. AND SHOWS MUCH CLASS. DASHBOARD, SEATS ( LEATHER ) AND TIRES. SAY IT ALL. " HOT " MILANO RED...HMMMMMM. A GRABBER FOR ATTENTION.


Worst Features

ALARM SYSTEM IS GREAT BUT NOT SELF LOCKING LIKE MAZDA'S. ALL IN ALL, A FEATURE I CAN LIVE WITH.
