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


I have put 18,000 miles on my 2002 base
over 2 years, and it is still a blast
to drive! Handling is excellent, great
shifter. Yes there are cars out there
that are faster, and cars that are more
luxusious, but for the price, this car
delivers both performance and style

It is great being able to drive it
normally and have a great daily driver,
getting over 30 mpg, but have a 7K RPM
redline in reserve when you want to
punch it! The interior is well laid

Overall (performance, price,
reliability), this car compares well
against the competition: Celica,
Eclipse, GTI, WRX, Mini-
Cooper, Tiburon.

Best Features

Auto-up and auto-down driver's side window BEST SHIFTER EVER great handling good MPG, uses regular gas Acura reliability good daily driver, but FUN when redlined big sideview mirrors quality interior reasonable price

Worst Features

All suggested improvements are Very Minor (I am nitpicking): Crappy stock Michelins gotta go! Paint on front seems to chip easily stock stereo (headunit) is poor slight notchiness in 2nd gear
