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


The 2005 has Tranny issues just like the last ones... They didnt redesign the 5th and 6th syncro to be smoother... the truth is they had and still have poorly designed syncros.. my 2002 had a 2nd gear grind... they replaced it with 2005 carbon syncros... it eliminated the grind in 2nd now 3rd and 4th have a grind.... 3rd will not go into gear sometimes... and you think it is but then it pops out and grind! I have talked to Hendrick mechanics and all the 2005's have the same problem with 3.... they all tell you to wait and push the clutch in all the way.. but that shouldn't be the way it is... its a great car otherwise . no other problems... Acura needs to step up to the plate!

Best Features

Gas mileage and good performance

Worst Features

more plush seats for longer trips... armrest, better sound system, sliding things from the sun visors to get teh sun that the visor doesnt block (see accord, and other better honda models have these) computer screen showing temp outside inside... just luxury things an acura should have..
