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


performance - acura rates this car as
having 160 hp. don't be deceived. the
peak hp is delivered around 6000 rpm,
which you won't normally access unless
you've got the pedal stomped to the

comfort - these seats are the best
stock seats i've ever rested my cheeks
on. the seats literally wrap around the
driver to keep you in place through
twisting turns.

fuel economy - i'm getting nearly 27
mpg in mostly city driving!!

build quality - the build quality is a
50/50 mix of being excellent / suspect.

overall this car is EXCELLENT. test
drive a few other cars for the sake of
comparison, but this car is a GREAT buy.

Best Features

quality interior, red dash lighting, performance / handling, build quality, all the other things you've heard, etc.

Worst Features

20 more hp on the base model, better seating surfaces so the leather isn't stressed so easily, why is the paint on the hood chipping already? the road noise anytime you drive above 50 mph or on a textured surface is almost unbearable!!!
