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


Review

I just recently purchased this car and
though disappointed with the sound the
exhaust makes as well as the Bose sound
system (sub in spare doesn't sound like
a sub at all), I have to say this car
is fantastic! Pulls hard in every
gear, shift action is better then
Porsche, pedals are spaced perfectly
apart, 0-60 faster then any car in it's
class. Also had good dealership
experience.


Best Features

POWER! POWER! POWER! 6-speed manual, seats, auto up and down on driver's side window.


Worst Features

hardly any bass from Bose spare-tire based sub, auto-up/down should have been on both windows, needs tighter turning radius, no inside hatch release, needs steering wheel mounted radio controls.

Review

All around nice balanced car.

1. Power is great
2. Handling is great
3. Doesn't rob you at the gas pump
4. Excellent build quality
5. Very Reliable
6. Great interior/exterior
7. Nice Sound system

You'd be hard pressed to find any other
car with all those amendities at that
price. When I originally test drove
the car it didn't do much for me but
after the break-in period and learning
how to drive...I was like wow!!!


Best Features

That i-vtec system because its quite powerful. The seats because they contour around you and the six speed transmission because it's so smooth.


Worst Features

Better tires and bigger swaybars.

Review

This is my wife's car, but i get to
drive it occasionally. Mine's a 94
gsr with 211,000 miles so I can
compare them well. The rsx is lacking
a bit of power up to 6000 rpm, but
after that it's great. The gas milage
is wonderful. We just got back from a
trip and averaged 41 mpg over 300
miles. But under normal driving
conditions we get around 26-28. The
transmission is one of the best i'd
ever driven. My wife reluctantly
learned on this car and had no problem
catching on.

I would definately recommend this
car. We have had no problem with it
at all. Acura quality at its best.


Best Features

6 speed manual transmission


Worst Features

HID lights. Make the radio easier to change out or make an MP3 option.

sterring is unbleiveable when turning
tight corners going about 70 and then
downshifting in to the corner very
smooth. No problems at this time.
