2002 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I was determined to get a fun car and
my RSX-S is indeed fun. Coming from an
SUV, I am still driving my RSX like a
87 year old so about 50-100 of my 200
horses haven't gotten out of the stable
yet. But is still can't stay below 80
miles an hour.
When I was looking for a car, I still
had a bit of former SUV enviromental
destruction guilt, but I really wanted
to surpass the 89 miles an hour I could
achieve at maximium warp on my old
Blazer. The RSX-S has 200 horsepower
and is a Low Emission Vehicle. It is
the best of both worlds and I can
afford it.
The interior is flawless. The stereo
is amazing. The interior is what sold
the car to me.


Best Features

You can't get more bang for the buck. Interior is great.


Worst Features

Standard Fog Lights and an outdoor thermometer

Review

This Acura is without a doubt the most
fun to drive car I have ever had the
privilege to own. The hi-revving twin-
cam coupled to the slick shifting 6-
speed makes you one with the car (I
know this is an over-used cliche, but
if you drive this car, you will know
what it means). The interior begs you
to drive fast. Clear gauges, leather
wheel at just the right reach, and that
precision shifter- always right at
hand. This is not a car, as much as it
is a precision instrument, a scaple to
carve up any road. If you ever enjoyed
a high revving Italian car and enjoy
working the gears manually, you owe it
to yourself to test drive this car.


Best Features

Precision 6-speed, Hi-revving 200hp motor, tight handling, 6-CD Changer, front seats, clean styling.


Worst Features

Just nit-picking here: better isolation from road noise, center arm rest console, distintive Type-S features.

Review

what can i say, this is just awsome car
fun, sporty, comfortable, and the gas
milage is great. You would be a fool to
buy anything else in its class. This
car is the gold standard for sport
coupes.


Best Features

High reving i-vtec engine, with supieior driving seats.


Worst Features

Arm Rest, i still dont know why there is no arm rest.

Review

Everything about the car is perfect.
The car's small so the 160 HP is
definately enough. It accelerates fast
so you wont have any problems getting
into Highways, etc. It handles
perfectly and the small steering wheel
makes it even easier to handle. The
Red Dashboard Lights look really nice
but guess that's a matter of an
opinion. The engine has a really nice
sound (not too loud or soft). I find
the seats comfortable and I received
compliments from many people on its
looks. I definately reccomend this car.


Best Features

The Exterior/Interior looks, i-Vtech, Red Dashboard LIghts, Handling, Small Size, and the Rims.


Worst Features

Guess an Armrest for the people who need it but I don't use it. An automatic seat adjustor would've been nice.
