1.5 Year Update
By S_T_S on
Vehicle2003 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewI've had my RSX-S for about 18 months
and found it to be very reliable and
great on gas (26-33) even if you thrash
it. Great interior design and the
hatchback provides loads of space.
However, some things are starting to
annoy me: The seats are great for
holding you place around corners, but
get painful after about 1 hour as they
are hard and flat, Third gear can be
hard to engage, The engine basically
makes little power until 6K and after
that gets really loud, Stock tires
squeal around even moderate speed turns.
Best FeaturesGreat MPG, reliability, interior design and practical hatchback versatility. The cars is loads of fun flinging around corners on winding roads. The engine does make considerable power from 6K-8K and doesn't seem to mind the abuse. This car is quick, but not really fast.
Worst FeaturesThe car is flat-out uncomfortable for long trips due to seats, stiff suspension and noise. Trans can be finicky. No power until 6K.
