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


Review

this is a truly well put together car,
but after only 1year of use and less
than 6000mi the trade-in value is about
$10k less than i paid. i added sporty
18" rims and low profile tire as well as
the stock fog lights, but dealers don't
want to add on to the trade-in value.


Best Features

like the 3band iVtec, but wish there was a switch to make the 3rd band 6-8k RPM pull that hard off the line for those rare occassions. love the subwoofer placement.


Worst Features

turbo or supercharger option from the factory would be well received. sterio sounds clean, but not enough volume.

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


Review

It's performance saved my life today-
the computer braking system,
suspension, and perfomance.


Best Features

Fun to drive barefoot- easier too. Not too great with beach sand.


Worst Features

It is easily dinged by cars next to me. Do not like the back window. It is difficult to see out of it in the rain even with the windshield wiper. Radio controls on the wheel would rock.

Review

I bought it the month it came out and
its been my pride and joy ever since.
Performance is stunning at over 6k
rpm. The shifter/transmission is the
best I've ever driven,
short/crisp/quick and well-tuned to the
engine. Fuel economy is stunning when
driving at 3k rpm and lower. The depth
of the engine sound is nice when idle,
and the scream above 6k rpm is musical.


Best Features

Engine/performance, transmission, materials, Bose sound system w base module, interior/exterior design, trunk space.


Worst Features

Stickier tires, 17 inch wheels, HID lights, intermittent rear wiper, reduced tire/wind noise.

Review

It's tough to keep the keys from my
wife. The 6-speed is a blast to
drive. You really notice the
difference between this car and any
other comparable ride when you're
accelerating through the turns. It
digs in and powers through. The only
thing is that to get that type of
performance you feel all the little
bumps on the road too. It's a great
sports car and I'd recommend it to
anyone, but you have to like the
sports car ride for this to be the car
for you.
