I bought my RSX Type-S thinking that it
would be a newer version of my '92
Acura Integra GS-R. I was sorely
dissapointed. Despite having a bigger
engine (2.0L vs the 1.7 in my GS-R)
this car feels slow and sluggish.
Between 3000 and 6000RPM the car falls
flat on its @ss. The suspension isn't
as tight and the car has a lot of body
lean if you push it in corners. The gas
mileage is HORRIBLE, 20-25mpg. My
mom's Mitsu Outlander does better than
that. Oh, and my 6-speed manual has
been grinding 2nd and 3rd gears since I
bought it. I had it rebuilt once
already to no avail. DO NOT BUY
Ummm....6 disc in dash cd changer.
Leather seats. That's about it.
Better motor, better transmission,
better suspension....bring back double
wishbone in the front!!
