Having owned an 04 RSX previously,I
can say the changes for 05 are quite
noticeable improvements. Finally, an
all around terrific car now with
comfortable seats, a ride that doesn't
pound your brains out over broken
pavement, and is quiet on the highway.
Better brakes and quicker and lighter
steering make the car almost perfect.
I happen to like the new headlights,
and, (believe it or not) they actually
look similar to those in the new RL,
and more importantly, they do a better
job of illuminating the road. I think
they dumped those cheap sounding
speakers, and even gave the horn a
more European tone. With the 05
improvements, I can't think of
anything to complain about.
Good ergonomics, nice interior, tight
construction, and rock solid
Perhaps a more inspiring design for
the next generation RSX.
Been looking at many different cars
for ~2months. Then I went to the
Acura dealer, where my journey ended.
This car is very fun to drive,
environmently guit-free, and I enjoy
the heck out of communting to work &
short trips on the weekends. So far
it seems I can comfortably double any
speed sign an any exit ramp while
riding alone. My 4 year old daughter
loves hanging out in the back on
weekend drives, plenty of room for the
3 of us (me, mom & her).
Should also note I tested the Scion
TC3 & the RSX towers.
Really like the look of the front
end. Simple mantenance. Can reach
all the controls inside without
leaning up towards the dash. Many std
features, I added no options & am
Add more available back-tilt to the
drivers seat bottom.
Keep water/snow from dripping so close
into the hatch when opened in bad
Acura builds the best small performance
car around; but more importantly, I
would challenge anybody to find a car
with a better resale value including
Toyota. I'm now moving from an Integra
to a RSX and my wife just got rid of
her boring Subura Forester for an Acura
TSX. Have to work on the kids now so we
can become an all Acura family!
The combination of performance and
handling which makes is a very safe car
My car is a week old and I love it.
Everyday I look forward to driving my
RSX. My son love to go to school in the
car. The kids in he's preschool all
want touch it. Color Vivid blue Pearl.
So plan on caring a towel.
Love to open the car up and let the
wind blow my hair.
Needs more power. Power seats would be
great add on to the car.
