I am absolutely THRILLED with my new
RSX. I got the sporty type S. The 6
speed is incredibly smooth and easy to
drive. This is my first manual
transmission and I've had no trouble.
The engine is extremely powerful
producing over 100 hp per liter (a
very impressive engineering feat).
Leather recaro seats are awesome. 6
disk bose cd system is very nice.
Power at 5500 rpm's all the way up to
the 8000 rpm redline is astounding for
an engine this small. Will outrun pre
99 mustang GT's and runs nearly neck
and neck with the pre 05 mustangs.
Not bad considering they have an
engine HALF the size of the ponycars!
This car is a dream for the budget
minded driving enthusiast!
Too hard to pick just 1! The styling
is sooo much sexier than the earlier
model and like I mentioned earlier,
the power and handling of the car is
Traction is a problem. Acura needs to
use a quality limited slip
differential to at least cut down on
wheel spin at high rpm shifts. If you
shift into 2nd gear or 3rd gear at
redline, expect wheel spin and wheel
hop. Also, I think better tires
could probably solve this problem.
