Review

I think the RSX Type-S is a nice ride
and looks sweet on the road!! Great
purchase!


Best Features

EVERYTHING is great!


Worst Features

Altezza lights should be standard on it, maybe an upgrade to a V-6 with an extra 50hp...17" or 18" wheels...Needs a nice wing to be standard on it too!! Also fog lams standard...Just my opinion

Review

I've logged about 4000 miles on my RSX-
Type-S and have no complaints at this
point. It rides like a dream and
provides an extremely comfortable
driving environment for the driver (and
front seat passenger).

Review

I've only had the car for a week, but it
is already tied for the most fun car
I've ever driven. (Tied with a 90 CRX-si
I used to own) Everything is very well
put together and the 6 speed is the best
shifter I've ever used.

I drove a base model with the automatic
as a loaner yesterday and am very glad I
opted for the Type S. The automatic,
combined with the lower horsepower, was
noticably slower and the step-tronic
shifter seemed silly. Gear shifting
without a clutch just lacks the feel
needed on a sports coupe.

My only real beef with the Type S is the
inexplicably weak subwoofer. From some
searching on the internet, it seems that
a lot of other owners agree.


Best Features

Great engine and transmission Wonderful interior, everything fits like a glove.


Worst Features

That subwoofer has got to go, Bose is very overrated and it shows on this car.
