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

Review

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 high for full effect, and no it won't blow away a Corvette or a Mustang GT, but it will still keep you dipping in for more.

Best Features

The engine, of course. The shifter, short and sweet. The hatchback with the seats down, with room for a bike and more. The handling, very tight, very secure.

Worst Features

Blind spot visibility. The ride is sometimes jiggly around those fast, bumpy turns.
