I decided it was time to purchase a reliable car that would hold its value, Acura was my choice. The warranties, customer service and quality of these cars are second to none. I needed a daily driver that was sporty, reliable, held its value, and got great gas mileage at a good price. The RSX was all these things. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I'm in Pa and averaging 31-32 mpg with a little spirited driving in that number. The car gives all its power in the 5- 7k rpm range. It's quite a sound at that rpm. I wanted the S-Type but the insurance premiums made it unrealistic, not to mention having to use Premiums gas. The 5-speed base RSX was the perfect compromise for me.
Screaming engine at 5-7k rpm, awesome gas mileage, solid suspension with great handling, moon roof, power windows, locks, mirrors, heated side mirrors, hatchback with fold down seats, great warranties & customer service.
A little more power in the lower rpm range, larger rear sway bar.
