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


This was my first Acura and probably not the last. The car has awesome acceleration, great handling and is very fun to drive overall. Decent gas mileage, lots of looks, six speeds and the classic tell tale headlights (I like the 02-04 look better than the later 05-06 models). The third gear does grind from time to time. You really have to carefully place the gear to avoid it. Also this car is incredibly connected to the road. You hear and feel every little bump... a good thing if you're driving a sportier car, but tiresome if it's also your daily driver. Finally the insurance on this car is outrageous.

Best Features

Six speed, roomy hatch, acceleration, gas mileage, exterior design.

Worst Features

Lots of road noise, bumpy ride, grinding third gear.
