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


I had a 2002 RSX base that I loved. Then got hit by a red light runner which wasted the car. I went out and bought a 2005 Type S thinking it would be even bette. WRONG! This thing is junk. I've had it in the shop more times that I can remember. The struts have been fixed/replaced at least 5 or 6 times, the moonroof stopped sealing and had to be replaced, I have numerous rattles in the dash and doors. All this started at 750 miles and it now has 10,000 and is still going. I've had to file a lemon law claim as one deal just stopped returning my calls. I have well over 40 days of shop time and I can say that the TL is junk too since I've had it as a loaner car all this time too.

Best Features

Good acceleration, fast car, fun to run through the gears.

Worst Features

Better seat adjustments, it's just never right, either too far back or too far forward. How about some decent craftsmanship too, thing is a rattle trap. Go with different struts.
