Niggling problems spoil a great car

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


Fun car to drive, but have had a lot of little problems. Had to have power door lock motor replaced (very expensive - out of warranty) and now the hatch will not open - no way to manually override the lock, even from the inside. Side mirrors need to be heated on a car with such poor rear visibility. Ride is rough and noisy. On the other hand, driving is fun, with perky acceleration and good handling.

Best Features

Engine - very willing to rev. Aerodynamics - the car just sits down harder at high speed. 5-speed transmission - smooth and easy.

Worst Features

Heated side mirrors, better cupholder location, manual override for hatch lock, better seats (not good for long trips).

There is a manual switch for the hatch lock. You just have to put down the rear seats and take off the inside cover to see it. In Canada we got heated mirrors
