Best car for the money
By Mikey on
2004 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love my Acura RSX !!! I have owned it for about 2 years now and have driven 45k miles with no problems whatsoever. It has good pick up at higher RPM's but lacks torque. The leather interior is much nicer than the standard cloth. With the automatic climate control and the leather seats and my new navigation system (going to be installed this week) this car feels like a luxury vehicle and I only paid 20k for it. Stock stereo system isn't the greatest but car is definitely efficient and fun to drive.
Fuel economy, auto-climate control, leather interior, DOHC VTEC engine, Have gotten as much as 38 MPG with 89 octane, extremely fuel efficient for a car in this market, decent amount of room for a compact hatchback.
Needs more torque, can't feel the power the VTEC unless you hit high RPM's. Other than that WONDERFUL CAR!!! I will never buy anything but Acura again.
