I purchased this car in Jan. 2003 after
crashing my Beetle earlier that month.
I chose the RSX-S because of it's
performance. I was very disapointed
with 4 things: the first is that the
gas mileage isn't true, the second is
that after 5000 miles of driving it
doesn't grip to the road as good as it
did when I purchased it, the third is
that the insurance is too high for this
vehicle & last but not least, if Acura
was smart they would put another 20 lbs
of tourque for better peeling power
with less RPM.
Everything is standard.
wider & larger tires (at least 17") for
better handling, Bose system could be a
little more louder, Xenon lights can
add more prestiege to the brand.
This car takes corners effortlessly, it
has decent amount of power on tap,
silky smooth transmission the seats are
comfortable & supportive. The ride is
comfortable .........until you hit a
bump, Steering is firm & direct. The
car feels very stable at high speeds.
The Bose sound system is not as bad as
people say it is depending on the
quality of the CD & the signal strenth
of the radio. I find that visablity in
the rear is blocked by the C-Pillar.
But overall best car i ever had.
