2006 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I've had this car for a little more than half a year and I love it. It's fun to drive, it looks hot, and has great acceleration. I wish I got it manual, though, and in black (too hot in miami). It is a bit expensive, but it has great resale value, so I'm not complaining. I love that it's small and compact. And I love how guys wanna race me but then when they see I'm a girl, go away. =P Leather is comfy and remains so even after 5 hours of driving. I changed my rearview mirror ... it's a lot wider and I can see EVERYTHING.


Best Features

Leather bucket seats, interior and exterior design, size, stock rims, headlights, acceleration... just about everything.


Worst Features

Audio system. Wish it had auxiliary port for iPod (I have to order one), HIDs would be nice, seat warmers, temperature reading, automatic lights, and an alarm system.

2006 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great car to have. I drive it all the time just to drive it. It's quick and very responsive. Nothing in the car is less appealing now than it was when I bought it, i.e., leather is still in great condition, etc. This is by far my favorite car.


Best Features

Love the heated mirrors. Didn't think I'd care whether I had it or not, but in the winter when they're frosted they heat up almost immediately and become clear again.


Worst Features

Fuel economy. I get approx. 500 kms to a tank. Not terrible, but I'd expect a bit better.

2006 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Great looking fast car for a great price. That v-tech motor is simply awesome and 31 highway miles, can't beat that either.


Best Features

I love the 6 speed manual transmission, along with the very classy leather seat package.


Worst Features

None.

2006 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Certainly a big step up from a '97 Explorer. Sporty feel in the suspension and more than enough power get off the line. Hardly any disappointments, except: no automatic headlamps, poor sound system, and sometimes the automatic doesn't respond after slowing below 20 mph. As for the lights, my explorer had them, so why not this? As for the sound system, there is no stock system that could ever compare to a decent after market system; and as for the throttle response, if it were a huge issue I would have gotten a manual transmission. As I said for the money, I don't think you could find a better car.


Best Features

Sporty feel, racing style seats, overall stylish interior lay-out, great engine sound for a four-banger, 6.5" speaker housing (easy to put expensive speakers in).


Worst Features

Auto-headlamps, I'd like more horsepower, but then again what guy under 25 wouldn't.

Review

I think that this car is excellent and can be driven even by the unexperienced drivers. This car accelerates and handles great. I love it.


Best Features

This car is meant for me, so I like everything about it.


Worst Features

If I would improve one thing about the car, it would be the speakers. If they were louder then it would be perfect.
