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


This is my first Acura and I was buying it for the quality, both in reliability and solidity, but I've been disappointed in both. With under 50,000 miles I've already had two sensors go out, both of which were extremely expensive (think 10x more than other cars I've had!). The other complaint I have is with the noise level. I really expected this car to be solid as a rock and it was when I bought it in the summer. In the winter the dashboard sounds like it may fall off whenever I hit a bump. This seems to be a common problem with owners though Acura has never heard of it. I really had high hopes for this little car and maybe I was just unlucky.

Best Features

Styling, fun to drive, good gas mileage.

Worst Features

The extreme rattling makes the car feel cheap, a luxury brand - really any car that was $23,000 new in 2002 - should be more solid.
