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


Review

This car is great! I traded in a
350hp Trans Am for this car because I was quite
upset with having the brand new TA in
the shop for over $5000 worth of work
in the year I owned it. I have always
hated these little foreign cars.
However, after opening my eyes to the
actual value, performance, gas
mileage, reliability, and outstanding
customer service (including a real
live, brand new Acura TSX loner car
when your car needs even minor
service). If you even remotely like to
drive compare this $24,000 car to the
$24,000 '04 Grand Prix (my mom just
bought one). All I have to say in
closing is a little quote from my
favorite periodical, Car and
Driver, "Best Car in its Class!!"


Best Features

* 200hp(6.4-60mph)=32 mpg!!!!!! * handling * tons of standard features that the competitors up-charge for * customer service * great service department(no sitting around the dealership when you get the loner TSX) * great warranty * great lease options * great price


Worst Features

* xenon lights * more aggressive tires standard * bigger wheels * heated seats(now that it's winter in Pittsburgh) * optional navigation system

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


Review

I love this car. It's made by Honda, so
expect Honda reliability. The 200hp
TypeS engine is a hoot! If you haven't
ever driven one, you owe it to yourself
to go down and try one out. Take it up
to 8100, slam it into second, and hold
the hell on!


Best Features

Engine, Interior Cluster, Engine Sound at full throttle


Worst Features

Fix the little rattles here and there, and fix the defective transmissions! Otherwise, perfect car!

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.


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 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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.


Best 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).


Worst Features

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