I LOOOOOVE this car. I am a Mom who

by. It handles great.

Review

This car is great for enthusiasts just
wanting to get around with style. I
love mine. I find the torque on take
off is kinda weak, but if you put a
short shifter, it feels a whole lot
better. It makes a difference. I
can't complain other than that. Heated
side view Mirros? Awesome considering
those are always frozen during the
winter in WI. Seats always a comfort.


Best Features

Mine are the auto climate control, the heated side mirrors and sunroof (standard).


Worst Features

If you are going to make a Type-S, don't you think it should be powered like JDM's Type-R? The Base HP for the Base and Type-S are a little weak for what I thought it was going to be. The A-Spec could also have more to the package add-ons (More power and handling).

Review

I bought my RSX Type-S thinking that it
would be a newer version of my '92
Acura Integra GS-R. I was sorely
dissapointed. Despite having a bigger
engine (2.0L vs the 1.7 in my GS-R)
this car feels slow and sluggish.
Between 3000 and 6000RPM the car falls
flat on its @ss. The suspension isn't
as tight and the car has a lot of body
lean if you push it in corners. The gas
mileage is HORRIBLE, 20-25mpg. My
mom's Mitsu Outlander does better than
that. Oh, and my 6-speed manual has
been grinding 2nd and 3rd gears since I
bought it. I had it rebuilt once
already to no avail. DO NOT BUY
ONE!!!!!


Best Features

Ummm....6 disc in dash cd changer. Leather seats. That's about it.


Worst Features

Better motor, better transmission, better suspension....bring back double wishbone in the front!!

Review

I have been driving this car for quite
sometime now, and all I can say is WOW!
This car is amazing. My dad gave me an
option on what car to buy between Acura
RSX Type S or Hyundai Tiburon. I made
the best choice I believe. The only
problem I had with this car is the
stereo. I don't know about others but I
like bass, and this car's bose system
doesn't give you that. One 10 inch sub
for this car and you will be bumpin.
Other than that...car is amazing!


Best Features

DOHC V-Tech Engine Leather Interior 6-Speed Manual 200 HP IS 300 Killa!


Worst Features

Bose System-needs a sub Body-needs to be lowered 1 1/2 inches
