Just got my RSX a few weeks ago, and WOW! It's perfect for someone who wants a hot sports car but not something overly flashy. I was worried that the 160 horsepower engine wouldn't give me as much "go-power" as my last, 190 horsepower car, but that's not a problem. This little thing can go! I would have like to get the Type-S instead with 210 horsepower, but unfortunately I didn't like the wheels OR the spoiler that comes factory installed on the Type-S. Acura should consider changing them or making them options. To sum it up - this car is hot!
The appearance (exterior and interior) and the fact that Acuras are actually made by Honda which means they will last forever.
The doors don't automatically lock when you start driving or automatically unlock when you turn off the car - my Prelude had that feature and I loved it.
When I drive by people, they don't stare. I guess to them the RSX looks plain or ordinary. It's hard for me to understand!! I think it's a beautiful, classy, sports car!! Not only is it beautiful outside, but the inside is so comfortable, great quality, and it is fun to drive! I bought the base model, with leather interior and manual transmission. I think this model has more than enough power for me. I am not going to drive on a racetrack and I have a heavy foot as it is and don't want to get any speeding tickets!!! The automatic climate control works great and as long as your not going to always transport people in the back there is plenty of room in this car.I love it!!
climate control, leather seats, 2 A/C ports,has a place to install my Sirius Satellite radio gently to lower dashboard, large storage area in back, lots of drink holders.
I miss an outside temperature gauge, and the carpeted mats could be thicker and of better quality.
I get lots of compliments from people who see my car, which IS a lot of fun to drive. My only complaint is that I don't like the spoiler, which impedes my vision when backing up. I really like the fact that practically everything is standard, making it easier to buy and know the price.
The moonroof and the climate control system inside. It is great to not have to keep readjusting the A/C and/or the heat.
