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


I set out to buy a replacement for my
87 Integra, which itself had been a
great car. Test drove MB C230K, Celica
GT, & RSX-S but chose RSX as best
overall for engineering, performance,
ride, build quality, fuel economy and
purchase value. I loved my 87 Integra,
so naturally I make comparisions. The
RSX weighs 400 lbs more, has a 25%
larger engine and gets the same gas
mileage (32 mpg average), amazing. The
exterior stying is a plus but the
interior shows some negatives relative
to the Integra. In spite of the longer
wheel base and body, access to and
comfort in the rear seat is poor. Road
noise is worse, I believe due to the
cloth cover over the hatch area.

Best Features

Smooth precision drive train, good ride and excellent performance and handling. Good mileage on regular gas.

Worst Features

Offer the 6 speed manual trans on the RSX. It would probably aid the 160 hp engine more than it does the 200 hp.
