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


Review

This is a great car. It's economical, reliable and sleek. I have not experienced any problems at all. Smooth transmission and clutch, useful hatchback, and good safety features for the price. Very sold feeling. Cloth seats are seriously awful. Try this car on before you buy... especially if you don't get leather.


Best Features

Instrument panel design and red lighting. Its cool and very cockpit-like. Smooth engine. Good fuel economy (always 32 or so on highway). Exterior design.


Worst Features

The cloth seats are terrible. Definitely the worst seats of all the Honda products I've had. The side bolsters are awkward at shoulder level, the lumbar support is all wrong and they are just really hard. No armrest either. The steering wheel should telescope. I'm 6'0 and never comfortable.

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


Review

Great to drive...anywhere. Big trunk space for a coupe, I was able to move furniture and a 24' TV. Great handling on turns, Love that the radio faces more to the driver. Excellent gas milage...LA to Las Vegas in 3/4 of the tank. Looks like a rocket all my friends love my car. I got mine for 20K.


Best Features

Automatic Climate Control, the Automatic Sport Shift Transmission, the red glow from the instruents, auto up/down driver window, and of course the 2.0L 160-hp VTEC engine.


Worst Features

HID lights, lights on the vanity mirrors, hatch relase on the inside and on the control, better braking power, one touch auto open/close sun roof, bose system in all models, better cloth seats (no suede), and digital outside temperature reading.

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


Review

Ive had my RSX for almost four months, it is a gorgoeus car and not too expensive. I would urge anyone that is looking in the RSX price range to test drive one.. you will most likely buy one, it has amazing handling. The RSX may seem small, but I managed to move furniture, boxes and clothes with out a problem.


Best Features

The RSX has versatile storage space and it is very easy to put the back seats down.


Worst Features

This may seem trivial, but it has no vanity mirror-- which is important for women on the go. There is a mirror in the shade that pulls down, but it does not have a light.

Review

Fun to drive, great on gas, and able to hold my luggage too. This is a great car to travel in. We love the interior layout of the car. Although the torque could be better the over all driving is great. This price is right.


Best Features

Interior layout, comfort, price


Worst Features

better torque, it is good but could be better

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


Review

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.


Best Features

The body/interior both have great styling. The car is a real pleasure to drive at night with all of the controls well lit/placed. Everything is right at your fingertips. The handling/breaking/acceleration as well as the safety and reliability ratings are all strong selling points.


Worst Features

More rear leg room. Automatic/programable driver seat memory. Bose sound system available on other models, just not the Type S.
