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


Review

I love the suspension and horse power.
The car was worth waiting for to get
the color I wanted which was the blue
RSX. Buying it through the Fleet
dealer was the only way I would go.
The stick shifts fast and is set square
to the car so I never scratch gears!
The airbags in the side of the seats
are measured to the wieght of the
passanger. They work or the light on
the dash will set and tell you
disabled. Great Coupe.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the tires that come standard and the cd player. The sound is loud with stock speakers. I love the short shift stick. Getting GPS 2000 or the security alarm that calls you when your alarm goes off would be worth it.


Worst Features

I would only improve an option to get xm radio. I end up taking my car everywhere because it is so fun to drive with the windows down and sunroof open. The kids I babysit in the back seat won't tell me that my radio is fuzzy with xm radio because they are used to the xm.

Review

Magnificant car!! I've had 2 Honda's,
an Integra GSR and a Subaru and this is
by far the best car I've ever owned.
Honda/Acura is famous for it's quality
but this takes it to a new height.
Every dial, switch, and button is
perfect. The transmission is smooth and
precise. No matter how fast your going,
the car want's to go faster. I've never
driven a car with as stable and
confident ride. I seems to steer itself.


Best Features

Too many to list all - everything is fantastic but if I had to, the combination of a perfect transmission and excellent power make this car extremely fun to drive.


Worst Features

The only tiny complaint I might have is that if you hit a bump in the middle of a sharp turn, the car gets a little unstable but on the whole the handling is fantastic. The car drives itself - you need almost no effort to take it though the hardest turns.

Review

After looking into Celicas, Eclipses,
Civics, and RSX's, I finally chose the
RSX. This car has been the best car I
have ever had! It is quick, sporty,
and extremely reliable and fuel
efficient. I have had absolutely NO
trouble with my RSX, and have found
Acura's customer service excellent.


Best Features

The interior of the RSX is very stylish, as well as the outside. All of the gauges, knobs, etc. are really easy to access and look cool.


Worst Features

Maybe a little more backseat room.

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).
