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


I have 7500 miles on my RSX-S. Love
it! Two things that set it aside:
First, once you start adding options
to match the "Type-S" package, all of
the competitors (except Tiburon) end
up costing more. Second, it's more
more upright, more refined, less "boy
racer". It's not v-8 fast, but I have
skunked Pontiac supercharged v-6's
before. This is THE best deal-for-the-
dollar in its bracket.

Best Features

Excellent engine! Drive it gently, you get great mileage and a smooth ride. Thrash it and it'll hang in there as long as you do. Lotsa trunk space for its size, HUGE glove compartment, great road holding.

Worst Features

Offer regular (solid) leather seats as an option. Add more support to the seat front. The sound system, especially the 'spare-mounted' bass speaker, is NOT up to standard. Move the bass somewhere useful. Better soundproofing: at speed, this thing is LOUD.
