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

Review

This car does nothing great, but does everything well. It has enough power to be useable in daily driving, yet it feels like a different car when VTEC kicks in around 6K RPM. Stock it handles well enough, but go aftermarket for serious handling. The interior is good. Nothing in this car requires the owner's manual. Honda has perfected user-friendly interiors. When driven reasonably, I've averaged 34-36 MPG consistently. The chassis has developed some rattles, mainly when the temps are cold. Other than that, the chassis is solid. I had 2nd gear grinds earlier on, but it now only happens when extremely cold. Overall, I love this car and I think it's a great car for the young professional.

Favorite Features

VTEC. Aftermarket support. Drivetrain. Suspension.

Suggested Improvements

Finicky transmission. Long trip comfort (stiff, bouncy and loud). Styling a bit boring. Bluetooth and nav capability.
