2004 Acura RSX 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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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


Review

This is my first new car and let me tell you, it is great! Bought it last February and I have not regretted it. While not the most "sporty" looking car, the styling grew on me and then I knew I just had to buy this car. Overall, I'd say best car for my price range. Rev this engine up and I guarantee you'll be breaking the speed limit. Great handling, Great interior! Could use a little smoother tranny, but I get by with it.


Favorite Features

Engine Power Above 3xxx RPM, Bose Stereo System, Styling, HUGE Aftermarket, Stiff Suspension


Suggested Improvements

Could probably use bigger tires (at least 17"), Heated Seats Maybe, Smoother Transmission

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


Review

I use my RSX mostly for the urban commute to work, but I am able to take it out on rural winding road on the weekends. The car is great for both. It is both comfortable enough for daily driving, and fun enough to let loose on the weekends. The service at the dealership is yet to be desired. I had an Infiniti for four years before I bought this car and Acura dealers could take a lesson from their competitor.


Favorite Features

High revving engine, fun to drive, red interior at night, Nighthawk Black Metallic is actually a black base with a dark blue metallic (looks great when the car is clean and the sun is shining).


Suggested Improvements

Dealership customer service. Xenon headlamps and a center armrest (the only Acura without these two items, Why?)

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


Review

I purchased my RSX-S about a month ago and am very satisfied. It's not only fun to drive, but is very practical and affordable. Acura has a winner here. with more power than the Lexus IS-300 and more stylish than the compact Infinity. It has superb handling and it's race inspired seating, you really feel in touch with the road. In a rating of 1-5, I give it a 9.


Favorite Features

The standard Bose audio system is crystal clear all the way to full volume. I hear things in songs now that i never heared before. And the climate control system keeps the interior just right.


Suggested Improvements

I would suggest telescoping steering column, I am 5'11" and have the seat almost all the way back. This isn't an issue except my arms are extended a little too far to reach the wheel.

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


Review

I have had my red 2004 RSX type S for about a year now, and still love this thing. For the daily commute, keep the rpm below 5000 and it is comfortable, refined and very economical, getting me 26-27 mpg (35mpg hwy). On weekends, or when more is needed, press hard and rev into VTEC heaven above 6000rpm and this car will rip out symphonic performance and leave you smiling. You have to work at keeping the rpm high for full effect, and no it won't blow away a Corvette or a Mustang GT, but it will still keep you dipping in for more.


Favorite Features

The engine, of course. The shifter, short and sweet. The hatchback with the seats down, with room for a bike and more. The handling, very tight, very secure.


Suggested Improvements

Blind spot visibility. The ride is sometimes jiggly around those fast, bumpy turns.
