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


I started with a Subaru Impreza AWD, so the transition to the RSX-S was pretty easy. The RSX-S has a nice stiff stock suspension, and great handling; it almost feels like it has AWD. With a couple small mods(cold air intake, racing exhaust) the car has a noticeable difference in acceleration. It's a lot of fun to drive, and has a sleek design.A++

Best Features

Leather racing seats "hug" you as you hug the turns. Plenty of room in the front..I'm 6' 220lbs. Nice acceleration. 6 speed. Bose sound system

Worst Features

"Mids and highs, but no lows, that's bose" It needs a sub for any kind of R&R Rap, anything. Get a sub! Also, being 6' tall, there is no room in the back for passengers. More horsepower out of the factory would greatly improve the car. The 02'- 05' has like 190 or 195hp stock
