2005 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This car is just a ton of fun. It's got pretty good torque off the line, but get the RPM's at about 6500 and feel 'er fly! The sport-tuned suspension (I have a Type-S) makes for great handling, yet the ride is still releatively quiet. The interior is very well designed, with the focus placed (as it should be) on the driver. While there is, technically, a rear seat for two, this is really only a two-seater for all intents and purposes. Small children and/or pets are the only things suited to being in the back. If you're looking for a passenger car, look elsewhere. If you want a fun car with nice pep and great extras (what a sound system!), get this car.


Favorite Features

Engine (210hp from a 4-cyl!!), Handling, Sound system (Bose), Tons of standard equipment.


Suggested Improvements

While the exterior looks sporty, I'd like to see a bit more of an aggressive design; the blind spot is massive in back, which makes for a difficult and nerve-wracking experience when backing out of the garage.

This car is amazing, especially on turns. The only area that I could criticize would be acceleration going up bridges, other than that...it's PERFECT! lots of room too.


Favorite Features

Look, steering, size, reliability.

I love everything about this car. I was driving a 1987 Chrysler LeBaron because I never found anything new that would compare to its styling and handling until I found this.

2005 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This cars is my second honda purchase, my first being a civic dx in 99. I love veything about honda's reliability with my first car and now the RSX Type S has added great handling, incredible pick up, great high end speeds, and an appearance second to none. I would suggest this car to anyone who really enjoys driving a little too fast a little to often. As far as maintance i have had none which is right in line with honda's reputation. GO BUY IT TODAY!!


Favorite Features

6 speed transmission, sport fitting leather seats, 17 inche rims and low profile tires from the factory.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel efficiency which may be impossible when the car has so much output.

Review

Im 51 and this is the 1st import I have ever owned. The car is amazing! The ride is smooth and the road feel is taught, but not "stiff". You can nail the gas pedal and hear it just come to life like a wild animal or take it out for a quite cruise at 70 while playing Motzart. The body style is unlike anything else on the road. And the quality and attention to detail is unsurpassed at this price. The Chevy Cobalt Supercharged version is in the same price range. But look closely... it doesnt hold a candle to the quality of the RSX Type-S.


Favorite Features

The sunroof I love along with the "feel" of the leather. Dash vents spin a full 360. The sound of the motor and it power band is impressive too. Love the michilens and 17 inch wheels along with the phat stainless steel exaust tip. And believe it or not the glass is much clearer than US cars have.


Suggested Improvements

The BOSE system is just ok and needs upgrading. Steering wheel radio controls would be nice. A power drivers seat would be great. Perhaps another 50 ponys under the hood would make this a Mustang killer !
