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


Bought it used in 2008 with only 24000 miles. I noticed it gets very good fuel economy at around 35 mpg highway @70mph. The acceleration is moderately quick though the automatic version I have lacks low end punch but I feel a much higher kick above the 3000 RPM range. It handles very well in most situations. Although the inside is more sporty than luxury, that's what is expected. I overall think its better than the majority of its competition and worth a look.

Best Features

Sport shift, interior and exterior design, fuel economy, performance, handling, reliability, build quality, some refinement, feel on smooth pavement, ease of climate control.

Worst Features

I would have liked to see more low end torque, a nicer radio, Acura's VSA (vehicle stability control) option and steering wheel controls
