Fun little car
By statusone on
Vehicle2005 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewThis was my first car ever and I enjoyed the heck out of it. It was vivid blue pearl and I had the type-s so the wheels looked amazing as well. The car was definitely a head turner and everyone seemed to like, people would let me thru in traffic (this doesn't happen in something like a bimmer).
It is a Honda so it is reliable as the universe and I had it serviced at Honda (since no Acura dealership was built near me at the time) and I got Honda prices, but Acura prices aren't that bad actually for a luxury car.
It isn't as fast as you'd expect a 210 hp car to be. The problem is you have to wind it up to 6500 rpm to get it going and there's very little torque.
But a fun drive nevertheless
Best FeaturesBeautiful car. Wheels, paint, perforated leather interior, heated seats. Red glow in the dash is easy on the eyes. Holds value like a tank.
Worst Features2nd gear grind. 3rd gear pop out. This can actually end up being dangerous if not taken care of. Tape deck is useless. Interior can be prettier. Seat is a too high and I'm only 5'7. Also it can get uncomfortable on long trips. A few rattles here and there but mostly fixable. Soft paint = Chips easy and can start rusting if not maintained. Maybe it's too beautiful - mine was stolen.
