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


Review

I purchased my RSX-S about a month ago and
am very satisfied. It's not only fun to drive, but
is very practical and affordable. Acura has a
winner here. with more power than the Lexus
IS-300 and more stylish than the compact
Infinity. It has superb handling and it's race
inspired seating, you really feel in touch with
the road. In a rating of 1-5, I give it a 9.


Best Features

The standard Bose audio system is crystal clear all the way to full volume. I hear things in songs now that i never heared before. And the climate control system keeps the interior just right.


Worst Features

I would suggest telescoping steering column, I am 5'11" and have the seat almost all the way back. This isn't an issue except my arms are extended a little too far to reach the wheel.

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


Review

I have had my red 2004 RSX type S for
about a year now, and still love this
thing. For the daily commute, keep
the rpm below 5000 and it is
comfortable, refined and very
economical, getting me 26-27 mpg
(35mpg hwy). On weekends, or when
more is needed, press hard and rev
into VTEC heaven above 6000rpm and
this car will rip out symphonic
performance and leave you smiling.
You have to work at keeping the rpm
high for full effect, and no it won't
blow away a Corvette or a Mustang GT,
but it will still keep you dipping in
for more.


Best Features

The engine, of course. The shifter, short and sweet. The hatchback with the seats down, with room for a bike and more. The handling, very tight, very secure.


Worst Features

Blind spot visibility. The ride is sometimes jiggly around those fast, bumpy turns.

2004 Acura RSX 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.

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


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.

2004 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Ive had my RSX for almost four months,
it is a gorgoeus car and not too
expensive. I would urge anyone that is
looking in the RSX price range to test
drive one.. you will most likely buy
one, it has amazing handling.
The RSX may seem small, but I managed
to move furniture, boxes and clothes
with out a problem.


Best Features

The RSX has versatile storage space and it is very easy to put the back seats down.


Worst Features

This may seem trivial, but it has no vanity mirror-- which is important for women on the go. There is a mirror in the shade that pulls down, but it does not have a light.
