2004 Acura RSX Type-S Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I just purchased my RSX Type-S a
little over a month ago, and it is
just so fun to drive. I live in an
area where you can find some old
backcountry hilly and windy roads and
i just cannot get enough of it. The
suspension is a little stiff so the
ride can get a bit bumpy, but it feels
great in the turns. It is just a
great looking, great sounding, great
driving car.


Best Features

The manual transmission is the best ive ever used, the sound system is amazing for a stock performance, and it just looks amazing.


Worst Features

The one thing they could add is possibly a V6 or a turbo model, while the 4 cylinder can still put out 200- horsepower it lacks a little on the acceleration.

Review

After driving a Corolla for 150K miles,
it was time to buy something fun to
drive. I test drove the GTS Celica,
Tiberon V6, GTI 1.8T, Jetta 1.8T and 6,
Mustang GT and the Eclipse V6.
Needless to say, I chose the RSX Type S
based on performance, comfort and that
all important "Fun to Drive" category.

After 1 year and 23000 miles, I have
nothing but praise for this car. Sure
it is not the fasted thing on 4 wheels
but it offers tremendous performance
and quality at a price that puts it in
a league of its own.


Best Features

Seats, Shifter, Climate Control, Handling, and Ivtec.


Worst Features

Would be nice to have the stereo controls on the steering wheel but I can live without it. Mirror that don't drip water constantly after washing.
