Road Noise
By Britt on 03/27/06 06:53 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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


Review

First off, the car is great, and everything you could ask for the money, HOWEVER, the road noise is horrible. The trunk and glove compartment rattle non-stop and the dashboard creaks when it is cold. I have taken it to the dealership 3 times and nothing has worked. I am thoroughly dissapointed in the overall quality. I was told that "its a commuter car and is noisy". If you don't mind the noise - buy it - if you do, run away fast.

Vehicle

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


Review

Driven mostly in town, to and from work. No long trips yet. Very reliable, gets in and out of tight spots well. Great get up and go and great braking ability. Haven't really stepped on it yet but has plenty of horses to spare. Very tight gearbox. Fun to shift up or down. Wet or dry it's all good.

Review

Looks great, very reliable, but for the money, this car needs MORE! I feel like I bought a hot car with stripped down basic features, but paid a lot because of the name Acura. And, geez, this car has no pick up whatsoever! I hit the gas and nothing!

Review

Guys, Dun get this car if u are considering.. because you and your car will spend most of the time in the dealership. The car has a strut problem and never going to be fixed. And you probably heard rattle noise when driving on bumpy roads. The tires skid when accelerate... so.... Think again when buying RSX and RSX-S

Review

I have over 1000 miles on my 06 RSX- S. It's a great car so far. Took it in once already with a known problem in the front springs. The gearing is very close so be prepared to change them A LOT. Unless you want to whine the car out to 6K-8K rpm everytime, in every gear, you will be shifting 4 times by the time you hit 45mph. The car does pull hard to 8.1K rpm, but who wants to rev the engine that high ALL the time. The seats, radio, controls, styling are all fantastic. The handling is close to the Mini Cooper, but longer wheel base makes it ride better.

Like A Dream

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


Review

This is my first car after owning a Chevy Cavilier and this car is fantastic. I live in Miami and have to be in traffic alot but when I get a break in the road- it zips right out of those tight spots and gets ahead of alot of the other cars. I have been able to get out of traffic where a larger Mustang will get left behind. I don't see alot of RSX's around and when I do I think they look really hot on the road. My friends love my car and I have been challenged to race several times on the road- but of course, I am a safe driver. ;) Overall- this car handles like a pro, it looks great and the chics love it. Black with tinted windows and all the fixings- it is the Intergra I always wanted.

Stellar Sportscar!!

Vehicle

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


Review

I maintain my RSX and it has never left me stranded. Its performance increased by using the highest octane gasoline. It handles well on curves, corners, turns, etc. It is a quiet ride and moreso its comfort. The shape of the car is out of this world. When I drive, people look at my car and think of it as you would a Ferrari!! I love it...my RSX is my 'baby' and gets rewarded for its quality and superb handling!

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


Review

I have about 450 miles on my RSX, it is a well built car with great attention to details. The biggest suprise is the powertrain, it is very smooth and predictable, up to this point I was an old school guy in regard to bigger is better for engines. Yea my old Z28 would still run these new boy racers into the ground in a race but these cars are very refined and smooth. I love this car. Not one regret at all.
