Wonderful Little Car.
By JDA on


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


Picked this up used as a 2 year placeholder, and now I'm rethinking the decision - in a good way - as in I might keep it longer than I thought. A great car. Excellent mpg, reliable, quick, handles great (for what it is), well-designed, sporty looking, low-emission vehicle. If you fold those back seats down, you can cram a lot of stuff back there. I feel like I'm late to the party on this model and now it has been discontinued - what a shame. The only negatives - small back seat, and overall the car is really small and light. I worry about safety, especially when I drive my little girl. In sum: if you like to drive curves fast, but you need a commuter, you will like this car.

Best Features

Interior ergonomics are sensational. Everything in reach and most everything is well-placed. The short-throw shifter. The undertated, non-garish exterior. The twisty road "shredability" factor on the weekend. The "blend into the masses" factor on weekdays. The "kick" of the V-Tech @ 6000 rpm.

Worst Features

RSX is discontinued.
