You'd be hard pressed to find any other
car with all those amendities at that
price. When I originally test drove
the car it didn't do much for me but
after the break-in period and learning
how to drive...I was like wow!!!
That i-vtec system because its quite
powerful. The seats because they
contour around you and the six speed
transmission because it's so smooth.
This is my wife's car, but i get to
drive it occasionally. Mine's a 94
gsr with 211,000 miles so I can
compare them well. The rsx is lacking
a bit of power up to 6000 rpm, but
after that it's great. The gas milage
is wonderful. We just got back from a
trip and averaged 41 mpg over 300
miles. But under normal driving
conditions we get around 26-28. The
transmission is one of the best i'd
ever driven. My wife reluctantly
learned on this car and had no problem
I would definately recommend this
car. We have had no problem with it
at all. Acura quality at its best.
6 speed manual transmission
HID lights. Make the radio easier to
change out or make an MP3 option.
The car really has a pleasant howl
above 6500 rpm and the 6-speed makes
it a breeze to keep it singing. The
interior is high quality and elegant
in it's simplicity and execution.
While not blisteringly fast it is
quick enough to be fun and my mileage
has been in the 30 mpg range. I found
it to be faster and less expensive
than a similar cooper-s or celica GT-
S. Unlike some I feel the suspension
is plenty stiff and responsive, if you
want more try the A-spec
Sound- The engine sounds great- the
stereo sounds great and is intuitive
to use. Lots of content included.
Reaaly fun to drive. Great balance
between responsiveness and ride quality
Seat heaters, looks are a bit bland.
Auto down window on passenger side.
Optional navigation system. Sometimes
seems noisy but its worth it at WOT.
