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
The drivers seat with lumbar support,
the automatic temperature control, and
the standard CD stereo system by Alpine.
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.
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
Interior design, 6-speed, comfort,
performance, style, seats, standard
features for the money.
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.
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+++!
I-Vtec, Domination here, 7900 rev
limit on S, really pulls hard from 5.8
to 7.9 and beyond.
