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


Gorgeous, classy, sports car! Definitely worth the money if you have it, can be pricey though (gas + payments). Can race and blow others out on the highway. Is discouraging to drive in cities where there are tons of stop lights. Small and compact, but still seems to fit all my stuff in it. Friends are little squished in backseat. Haven't had any under the hood problems with it yet (at 36k). The leather does have to be taken care of because it is stretched tight and wears out in spots. Not a big deal though. Best clutch-smooth shifting. Good in the snow (for Colorado). Side air bag for passenger automatically shuts off for small kids in front seat. Fold down back seats to trunk. Lumbar support on/off

Best Features

In-dash 6 CD changer + sub sits in spare tire-more trunk room and still sounds good. leather interior and the seats because they are good for holding you in on sharp turns and not as cold as other cars in winter. Cup holders fit almost every size. Hepa filter + ABS + auto temp are great too.

Worst Features

Get the heated seats like Canada's RSX, add a bit more torque just for the 0-25 MPH, and better gas mileage. Bigger sunroof and glove compartment. Some rock chipping in the front. '05 front headlights look like civics. Quieter automatic lock horn. V6 engine + turbo? compass+ temp? All nit-picking...
