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


Purchased the car 1 year used with
22,000 miles. Fun to drive, great
handling, engine feels solid. Build
quality appears to have gone down
slightly, but could be due to 1st prod.
year. 1st-2nd gear shift is notchy and
grinds occasionally (known problem - no
fix). Leather is wearing on driver's
side. Should have used leather with a
higher coefficient of friction (sliding
around during cornering is annoying).
Replaced factory audio with
aftermarket... Bose system was
pathetic. As others have stated, there
is much road noise.

Best Features

Exterior design, carbon-fiber interior, red-lighted gauge cluster, 7900 redline.

Worst Features

Armrest, higher quality leather, increased mid-range torque, improve audio system, put better tires on. Honda/Acura always under-tires their cars.
