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


Review

I traded my 99 honda accord v6 for
this car I fell in love with about 8
months ago. The beautiful black
exterior paint seems to look nicer
than most other cars, to include the
black interior. REVVING this car up
is not a problem. Easy to steer
around, and a lot of front
visibility. The looks of the car need
to be re-vampped at the very back end
of the car (because it looks cut in
half). Comfortable sound system with
the ease of an in dash 6 disc CD
changer makes highway driving less
work. The rear seats are good for
putting objects in, but NOT big
people! Love the red lighted interior,
Acura did not go wrong with that!


Best Features

The 6 spd shifter, 8000rpm rev sound, 6disc changer, black interior cockpit, red lighting at night, short shifting, leather bucket seats, front visibility area, gas milage (28-30 mpg for me), looks of the engine, suspension.


Worst Features

Tire noise, grinding gears, 2nd/3rd, my driver side window fell out of the car and I had to take the door panel apart and superglue the window to the holders :-(. Jittery noises, bigger tires, turbo option, lowered springs, awd/rwd (that would be spectacular)! Bigger wheels.

Review

I looked at cars in this class for six months before
making my final decision with the Type S. This is a
race car waiting to drive. I'm constantly looking for
reasons to take this thing down the block. Smooth
ride, powerful sound when you start the engine,
and all the power you need under the hood. The
acceleration will put you back in your fine leather
seats.


Best Features

Cockpit like console and feel, sporty leather seats and steering wheel, VTEC engine is smooooth, and the great six speed shift.


Worst Features

Electric seat controls, night mirror and lights on the vanity mirrors.

Review

Needed a new car for college that would
have a useable interior space for more
than 2 passengers, and reasonable rear
space. The hatchback design gives it a
large portion more space and ease over
a trunk in a sedan/coupe. Good price
when compared to similar cars in this
class. The low weight combined with a
4 cylinder engine allows it to have
great gas mileage and impressive
pickup. Very easy to learn clutch and
excellent 6-speed transmission. Fun to
drive and highly reliable, would
recommend this car to anyone looking
for more sport and utility in their
daily driving.


Best Features

High revving 4 cylinder engine, great gas mileage, lots of standard features, very easy to use 6 speed transmission, highly useable space under the hatch


Worst Features

Significantly more space in the center console, cupholders behind the emergency brake, telescoping wheel w/the tilt fuction

Review

After all the positive reviews and my
old car dying, I purchased one. I am
almost 100% satisfied with it. 200hp
is a lot for a 4 cylinder but more
companies are coming close to that and
there are many v6 and v8's out there
that will outrun even the Type S.
Insurance is sky high on this car, a
little fact I wish I had known prior to
buying. It's very fun to drive, the
cockpit is designed well, all buttons
in reach and easy to use. Love the 6-
disc in dash cd player. I have yet to
get the factory suggested mpg though.


Best Features

The look, the brand, the pickup, the sound system, and the cargo room (when the back seats fold down)


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, faster, quicker cd changer, full size spare, slight more headroom, more comfortable seat for longer trips

Review

I've had my baby for 6 months and so
have nothing but praise for it. The
only problem I've had was with the
engine light coming on but this was
due to me not securing the gas cap
tightly. remember it has to click
three times...


Best Features

Love the fact that the seat conforms to you and gives just the right angles for you to shift. Gotta love the 6 speed manuals.....:)


Worst Features

maybe the clutch could be a little more forgiving and the rear wing spoiler should be standard instead of optional...
