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


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.

Review

I got this car a little over a month ago and I am so impressed I will probably never stray from Acura in the future. Acura is owned by Honda, and my family owns 3 Civics between them with about 400,000 miles on the cars and none of them have had any major problems. So in purchasing the Acura I felt very comfortable about the quality, but after a month of driving this car I can honestly say it is underpriced. The handling is superb, everything in the interior is well made and it feels like a luxury car for under $20k. The only problem I have noticed so far is that the stereo is not the greatest and the rear seat is a little cramped for an adult.


Best Features

My favorite feature of the car is the handling. I have driven a Miata for the past 2 years and I would say this feels just as good if not better (the Miata is a little light and can drift in a turn or on a wet road) then that car.


Worst Features

The only major improvement I can think of is to include a better stereo in the base model, but I think this is asking a bit much. Other than that there is not much they can do about the back seat without changing the car completely. Overall, I couldn't be happier with this car.

Review

Let me tell you, when I first set eyes on my baby I knew I had to have him him. The car was a good size, being that I live in the city and pararell parking can suck if you own a Hummer. I took the car for a test drive and could not believe how smooth the ride was. THe car had incredible control along curves and bends. The interior black cloth with red contrasting lights caught my eye as it was chic and mondern. Not to the mention the rear windshield wipers and side mirror defrost were a bonus! I have had my car for a little over a month now and I absolutely love it..I want to marry it! All my friends love it, and most importantly I DO!!!


Best Features

dash board, side and rear mirror defrosters, and good sound system


Worst Features

The RSX should have a BOSE sound system as the RSX-S.
