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


Review

I have had this car for a little over a
year now and it simply kicks ass. I
have had absolutely no problems and it
is so much fun. I recomend it for any
one buying a car. Its also somewhat
affordable

2004 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It will not perform without premium fuel. It
also lacks in the handling department,
having too much weight in the front along
with sloppy steering at highway speeds, not
allow you to push the car as much as it begs
to be pushed. The button disabling the air
conditioner is known as the turbo boost
button. --It is extremely sluggish when the
AC is on.


Best Features

Some of the best, simple, and straight- forward dash design. Supportive and comfortable front seats.


Worst Features

Improve the weight distribution, tighten the steering with an engine that can handle the AC, and you've got a fun car at a reasonably low price. Think twice before purchasing, and consider spending a little more to get more.

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


Review

I just purchased my RSX Type-S a
little over a month ago, and it is
just so fun to drive. I live in an
area where you can find some old
backcountry hilly and windy roads and
i just cannot get enough of it. The
suspension is a little stiff so the
ride can get a bit bumpy, but it feels
great in the turns. It is just a
great looking, great sounding, great
driving car.


Best Features

The manual transmission is the best ive ever used, the sound system is amazing for a stock performance, and it just looks amazing.


Worst Features

The one thing they could add is possibly a V6 or a turbo model, while the 4 cylinder can still put out 200- horsepower it lacks a little on the acceleration.

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.
