80,000 miles never let me down

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


Overall a great car with Honda reliability; a lot of performance in the sub 25k category, Car and Drivers 10 Best list, and finished 1st place in a 5 car comparison beating wrx, neon srt etc. In a recent trip to Boston got 31mpg in mixed hwy driving. I shoved a 42 Plasma tv in the trunk while still in the box with rear seats folded down. My only gripe was had to replace oxygen sensor at 75000 miles and it was pricey.

Best Features

Installed an AEM v2 air intake system, love the way the engine sounds in the higher RPM range, smooth engine and transmission, when I go out on dates women always compliment my car, also added some slotted rotors for better stopping power Greddy front lip spoiler.

Worst Features

A little more torque would have been nice offering a 2.2L 0r 2.4L in the type S, a limited slip differential, a center arm rest, more rear head room for taller passengers. I switched from Michelin to Pirelli P-zero Nero all season tires 225/50 16 - the grip is far better then stock tires.
