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


Am selling this car to my son who is a college student and needs a car. Bought it used with 87k miles and it now has almost 125k. Needed a new clutch @ 115k and has brand new tires on it with a recent major service done @ 120k. This car seems like a new car and it's over 10 years old. Yes, it rides rough and has a noisy engine on trips but handles like a top line sports car and is a blast to drive with revs up. Around town gas mileage is 26, on some trips have gotten over 35, almost 36 mpg. I trade between 89 and 93 to average the 91 octane the manual suggests.

Best Features

Great handling, lot's of trunk space, looks really good -- has maintained it's eye appeal after 10 years. The engine is strong when you climb past 3000 rpm. Wish I could clone this car and keep one of them.

Worst Features

None. BTW, never, and I mean never put Bridgestone pole position ultra high performance tires on this car with this suspension - they are rocks to begin with. Stay with Michelin or Yokohama avs, they are a better match for handling/performance and ride comfort.
