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


Review

My radiator blew half way up Pike's
Peak highway during a vacation to
Colorado. My RSX was only 5 months old.
We had to have it towed down the
mountain and to a local dealership. It
was fixed, but not before half of our
trip was ruined. The worst experience
was trying to deal with the Acura
Roadside Assistance people to get
reimbursed for some of our travel
losses. After speaking to several
people, none of whom cared, and writing
a long letter detailing my experience,
I finally received a short response
that said little more than "go to
hell". The car has been adequate since,
but this experience will keep me from
buying another one.


Best Features

The look, the red dashboard lights, the sport shifter, and gas mileage.


Worst Features

bumpy ride, occasional rotten egg smell coming from vents (explained as having to do with the low emissions feature), and lack of pickup and sometimes stalling when I first start it after being idle for awhile (only happens when it's hot outside).

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


Review

Purchased a couple months ago a Type-
S. Fun to Drive, great interior
(though center armrest area could be
better), hatchback is convienient, and
handles very well.


Best Features

Interior (including the dash). Performance of the car.


Worst Features

More torque for the engine, more wattage for the Bose system (though it's pretty solid), a little more creative body styling.

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


Review

This car offers luxury and comfort
right from behind the same company
that brought us the Acura Integra. It's
sporty look combined with it's
performance offers more than meets
the eye. The Acura RSX is trully one
a kind car that should be a part of
every adventurer's repetoire.


Worst Features

Offer more power at lower level RPM Come stock with a turbo charger

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


Review

I got the car a couple of months ago
and I'm still never tired of driving
it. I almost got the auto because I
didn't know how to drive a stick. I'm
glad I made the effort to learn
because once you go manual, you never
want to go back. I seem to get a lot
of "lookers" around my car too.
Freeway on-ramp are so much fun now!


Best Features

Where to start? The interior, engine, gas milage. Everything about the car is rad. BTW, I have the OEM body kit and rear wing so you know the exterior is "Da Bomb". The sound system is good enough for me since I really don't need blast it for other drivers around me.


Worst Features

HID Headlights The Hondata ECU Upgrade from the factory.
