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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

is very practical and affordable. Acura has a

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.
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
