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


Review

Bought the Type S. Had the car for
almost 2 years now, put about 24
thousand miles on it and never had a
problem so far(knock on wood). The car
has a tight stick, tight steering, and
great acceleration. I would recommend
this car to anyone who wants an
affordable quick coupe with some style
but if your looking for something
roomier check out the Mazda 6 but its
still no Acura. Plenty of room for a
single guy or girl.


Best Features

6 disc CD player is great, leather buckets seat are comfy, the handling is awesome,


Worst Features

Bigger sunroof, it would be nice to have a middle arm rest, heated mirror option

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


Review

Great car- no problems after 30k.
Excellent handling and performance
withing tuning. Have added 18"
wheels, suspension kit (koni/nuespeed)
and Cold Air Intake (AEM) which
increased horsepower & handling
nicely. Overall Good gas mileage.
Only gripe is the stereo... Not easy
to tap into for aftermarket goodies.


Best Features

Gas pedal


Worst Features

Super Charger would be great.

Review

Overall an excellent vehicle. Well
built, nice features and styling. Very
responsive and fast, need to watch
speed on highway.

Fun to drive. Plenty of extras for the money.


Worst Features

Upgrade tires, body is very susceptible to door dings along edges. Relocate the cruise control on button.
