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

Review

I loved my 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 5-speed: brilliant steering and magic, compliant long-travel suspension. Wanted SVT Focus, but none available. Acura offered a GREAT lease deal: $1k down included 1st mo, 48mo @$275 w/tax for RSX-S w/15k miles/yr. Mazda 3S hatchback nice but only $9/mo less than better performing/feature-laden RSX-S. Mini S nice but too small, too $$. Best feature: tan leather, high-quality interior vs. cloth in coal-bin black. Type S = fabulous performance (esp. engine/6 speed), but rather too stiff & frenetic. Comfy seats, well bolstered. Why don't they put better, stickier tires on these??? Best-in- class bang-for-buck.

Favorite Features

Tan leather interior (not black!), superb 6 speed, fit & finish, quality materials, feature-laden for great price. Hot rod engine (if you're willing to use the revs), Acura dealer experience, long warranty. I like the looks. Hatchback practicality, decent stereo. Great lease deal.

Suggested Improvements

Stiff suspension lacks travel/compliance, esp.@ rear. Way under-tired for intended sporty usage (needs wider, stickier tires), failure of seats to return to previous position, engine slightly buzzy. Steering wheel could be thicker, firmer. Needs more interior storage.
