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


Overall, I love this car. It blends performance along w/ luxury in a very valuable package. Yes, the gearbox is a little finicky at times, but you just have to row thru the gears prior to driving, especially when cold. Yes, my car has many rattles. Ask any owner of a sport compact w/ a very stiff suspension. It's just the nature of the beast. Used to drive this thing 160 miles everyday for work. Road noise gets tiresome and stiff suspension causes backaches, but gets very good MPG. Compared to other cars, may not have the most luxury or features. Honda owner for life.

Best Features

Overall performance, interior design, hatchback versatility, exterior looks w/ help of JDM body kit.

Worst Features

NAV & MP3 hook-up ability. Better rear suspension setup (fixed by '05 & '06 models). Little better engine performance (fixed by '05 & '06). More aggressive exterior (fixed by '05 & '06 models). Limited Slip Diff. HID headlamps.
