2002 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought the RSX and got a speeding
ticket during the 2nd week of
ownership. This car is fast and
responsive (as the cop noticed).


Best Features

Red dashboard, in dash cd player, leather, new car smell, good gas mileage, cold A/C, cops seem to love this car and so do big duelies as they always attempt to race me but endlessly fail.


Worst Features

Put a larger engine in the car so I can go fast.

2002 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

When the dealership brought out the
Silver RSX with the 5 speed manual I
was hooked. I felt lucky since the RSX
sales are so good most dealerships
can't keep many in inventory. The
ergonomics are the best of any car I
have driven. The quality is so much
better than the Mercedes 230C. And the
Acura costs $8000 less fully equiped.
For me this is the perfect car to drive
to work and fun to drive on the
weekends.


Best Features

The drivers seat with lumbar support, the automatic temperature control, and the standard CD stereo system by Alpine.


Worst Features

The cruise control buttons on the steering wheel need to be backlit for night driving. A handle on the inside of the hatchback door would be helpful since it opens very high.

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


Review

Ride, handling, and performance close
to that of the S2000, but in a package
that allows you to carry four people.
Incredible scoot kicks in at 5800 rpm
and gets better up to (and willingly
past) redline. Aggressively bolstered
(and comfy) leather seats hold you
snugly through the twisties that this
car loves. Excellent touring for two
with ample luggage space. Tightly
screwed together with a reputation for
top-ranked dependability!


Best Features

Interior design, 6-speed, comfort, performance, style, seats, standard features for the money.


Worst Features

Larger wheels, 1-2 gear change, more power to otherwise fine Bose system, improved driver visibility (BAD blind spot!), rear wing standard (only way you can tell where rear of the car is when backing up.

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


Review

Great Car, so nice in so many different
categories. The interior is layed out
beautifully, and at night the red
lights are awesome. Some may not like
them, but I LOVE them. Very Fast,
defiantly get the Type S if you can
afford the insurance, and want to have
fun in it. The leather seats are A+++!


Best Features

I-Vtec, Domination here, 7900 rev limit on S, really pulls hard from 5.8 to 7.9 and beyond.


Worst Features

17" rims stock
