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


The good: acceleration, reliability,
tight suspension. The bad: audio
system, road noise. The ugly: insurance
rates. This is a remarkable car. The S-
type is a better sports car, but less
practical if you live in an urban
center. Tall 3rd gear is a lifesaver
during rush hour. It’s a good car to
learn or refine your manual driving
skills. “Precise” is the keyword for a
RSX. Because this car is marketed to
the 20 something crowd, insurance rates
are high (if you’re under 25, expect
your monthly insurance rate to be half
of your car payment). Visit an RSX
forum to hunt for a good dealer.
Overall, no car comes close the RSX for
the price.

Best Features

Acceleration, reliablity, tight suspension

Worst Features

None so far, maybe manufacturer's recommended fuel should be changed to 89 octane, instead of 87. Car feels sluggish with 87.
