2003 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I like small cars and needed something
with an automatic (I have a bad knee),
that would hold its value well, good
performance, gas mileage, comfortable on
long trips and able to occasionally
carry bulky items, like a 32" TV set.

I found the RSX to have the best
combination of a small engine with an
automatic I have ever seen. It's not a
racer but it is quite lively and
extremely smooth.

I also get as much as 32 MPG on the
highway but only 16-18 in town. (Heavy
right foot, my fault.)

In all, it's the perfect car for me.


Best Features

Lively performance, great gas mileage on the highway and very comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Have the CD player handle MP3s and make the engine a *little* bigger for just a little more low end torque.

2003 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Ive owned this car for a year...have
had a BMW 3, a Mazda Miata and a
Silverado truck. This is by far the
most fun and best handling. The clutch
and 6 speed are smooth and easy, the
steering is tight and handles awesome.
when you rev the car over 6K RPM (its
designed for this) the power comes on
like crazy! Its like its got a turbo,
thanks to the i-Vtec. I Plan on
keeping this one for a while and I
cant imagine anything better in the
price range. This is "a luxury Civic
on steriods" and has the quality of a
Acura TL, would recomend to anyone.


Best Features

Performance and handling, Interior styling, seats, dash. Attention to detail, 6 disc CD. 17" rims, 10, 000 ml service. Value / "bang for the buck".


Worst Features

Better tires (high performance. More head room in the back seat, quieter on highway. (trust me im "nit picking")

2003 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I've owned two of these cars now. The
1st one saved my life in a two roll
over/4 tree hit accident. They have
great potential and are a major eye
turner while driving around town..


Best Features

The 6 cd changer has made my music life a lot easier.


Worst Features

Make the car AWD and add a little bit more torque to it, with those two the car is perfect.

2003 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This car is amazing and is deserving
of all the awards that it receives.
The acceleration is there when you
need it. The interior design is
fabulous. Although the best part of
the car is its superb handling.


Best Features

The best features of this car are its handling, pick-up, and interior design.


Worst Features

The two improvements that could be made are bigger wheels for the type-s and a power driver's seat, which is just really not necessary but a nice feature.

2003 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I have now owned the car for 1 year and
driven over 16000 miles. I can still
say that this is the finest vehicle I
have ever owned. No rattles or squeaks,
still looks new and it is still a blast
to drive. I am 6'2" and have taken
trips up to 200 miles none stop and
have never been uncomfortable. I would
recommend this car to anyone without
reservation.


Best Features

Styling of interior and exterior. Quality. Performance & Handling. 6 Speed shifter. Value.


Worst Features

Stereo's sound reproduction is perfect but the volume needs increased. More exterior differentiation between the base RSX and Type-S.
