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


Review

All around nice balanced car. 1. Power is great 2. Handling is great 3. Doesn't rob you at the gas pump 4. Excellent build quality 5. Very Reliable 6. Great interior/exterior 7. Nice Sound system 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!!!


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

Better tires and bigger swaybars.

Review

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 catching on. I would definately recommend this car. We have had no problem with it at all. Acura quality at its best.


Best Features

6 speed manual transmission


Worst Features

HID lights. Make the radio easier to change out or make an MP3 option.

Review

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


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.
