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).
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.
Great engine and transmission
Wonderful interior, everything fits like
That subwoofer has got to go, Bose is
very overrated and it shows on this car.
