Very competent, lacks zip
By Heliotar on


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


The Acura RSX is a well-built and well-
designed car, yet it lacks the frisky
spirit of the Integra. The engine has
more torque and is easier to manage
than the old Integra, but is not as fun
to dip into high-rev territory, despite
the higher horsepower. I cannot put my
finger on why, but the sheep's clothing
ultimately dominates the wolf within.
Maybe it is because the steering is a
little remote and the brakes feel a bit
spongy. This is a fast and capable
car, that manages to be one of the
greenest pure gasoline engine vehicles
on the road.

Best Features

The most outstanding of this car is the amazing mileage, that hasn't dipped below 30, even in city driving. In addition, the lack of body roll is a real pleasure in the corners. The seats are great too.

Worst Features

The worst aspect is the reduced trunk space over the Integra and the lack of interior storage compartments. The limited rearward driver visibility is a hazard.
