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


Review

I traded my 99 honda accord v6 for this car I fell in love with about 8 months ago. The beautiful black exterior paint seems to look nicer than most other cars, to include the black interior. REVVING this car up is not a problem. Easy to steer around, and a lot of front visibility. The looks of the car need to be re-vampped at the very back end of the car (because it looks cut in half). Comfortable sound system with the ease of an in dash 6 disc CD changer makes highway driving less work. The rear seats are good for putting objects in, but NOT big people! Love the red lighted interior, Acura did not go wrong with that!


Favorite Features

The 6 spd shifter, 8000rpm rev sound, 6disc changer, black interior cockpit, red lighting at night, short shifting, leather bucket seats, front visibility area, gas milage (28-30 mpg for me), looks of the engine, suspension.


Suggested Improvements

Tire noise, grinding gears, 2nd/3rd, my driver side window fell out of the car and I had to take the door panel apart and superglue the window to the holders :-(. Jittery noises, bigger tires, turbo option, lowered springs, awd/rwd (that would be spectacular)! Bigger wheels.

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


Review

I looked at cars in this class for six months before making my final decision with the Type S. This is a race car waiting to drive. I'm constantly looking for reasons to take this thing down the block. Smooth ride, powerful sound when you start the engine, and all the power you need under the hood. The acceleration will put you back in your fine leather seats.


Favorite Features

Cockpit like console and feel, sporty leather seats and steering wheel, VTEC engine is smooooth, and the great six speed shift.


Suggested Improvements

Electric seat controls, night mirror and lights on the vanity mirrors.

2004 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Ive had my RSX for almost four months, it is a gorgoeus car and not too expensive. I would urge anyone that is looking in the RSX price range to test drive one.. you will most likely buy one, it has amazing handling. The RSX may seem small, but I managed to move furniture, boxes and clothes with out a problem.


Favorite Features

The RSX has versatile storage space and it is very easy to put the back seats down.


Suggested Improvements

This may seem trivial, but it has no vanity mirror-- which is important for women on the go. There is a mirror in the shade that pulls down, but it does not have a light.

Review

Needed a new car for college that would have a useable interior space for more than 2 passengers, and reasonable rear space. The hatchback design gives it a large portion more space and ease over a trunk in a sedan/coupe. Good price when compared to similar cars in this class. The low weight combined with a 4 cylinder engine allows it to have great gas mileage and impressive pickup. Very easy to learn clutch and excellent 6-speed transmission. Fun to drive and highly reliable, would recommend this car to anyone looking for more sport and utility in their daily driving.


Favorite Features

High revving 4 cylinder engine, great gas mileage, lots of standard features, very easy to use 6 speed transmission, highly useable space under the hatch


Suggested Improvements

Significantly more space in the center console, cupholders behind the emergency brake, telescoping wheel w/the tilt fuction

Review

After all the positive reviews and my old car dying, I purchased one. I am almost 100% satisfied with it. 200hp is a lot for a 4 cylinder but more companies are coming close to that and there are many v6 and v8's out there that will outrun even the Type S. Insurance is sky high on this car, a little fact I wish I had known prior to buying. It's very fun to drive, the cockpit is designed well, all buttons in reach and easy to use. Love the 6- disc in dash cd player. I have yet to get the factory suggested mpg though.


Favorite Features

The look, the brand, the pickup, the sound system, and the cargo room (when the back seats fold down)


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, faster, quicker cd changer, full size spare, slight more headroom, more comfortable seat for longer trips
