2005 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I bought mine a month ago, and it's been a blast. The car rides great for a smaller vehicle. THe interior is quiet, the bose sound system sounds almost perfect. The seats are comfy and the trunk has plenty of room. This car is fast and fun to drive to work. I spend about 2 hours a day in my car and this makes driving something to look forward to. Test drive it and find out for yourself.


Best Features

interior, 6 speed transmission, headlights


Worst Features

rear seating is lacking, not much cargo space up front.

2005 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This car is just a ton of fun. It's got pretty good torque off the line, but get the RPM's at about 6500 and feel 'er fly! The sport-tuned suspension (I have a Type-S) makes for great handling, yet the ride is still releatively quiet. The interior is very well designed, with the focus placed (as it should be) on the driver. While there is, technically, a rear seat for two, this is really only a two-seater for all intents and purposes. Small children and/or pets are the only things suited to being in the back. If you're looking for a passenger car, look elsewhere. If you want a fun car with nice pep and great extras (what a sound system!), get this car.


Best Features

Engine (210hp from a 4-cyl!!), Handling, Sound system (Bose), Tons of standard equipment.


Worst Features

While the exterior looks sporty, I'd like to see a bit more of an aggressive design; the blind spot is massive in back, which makes for a difficult and nerve-wracking experience when backing out of the garage.

This car is amazing, especially on turns. The only area that I could criticize would be acceleration going up bridges, other than that...it's PERFECT! lots of room too.


Best Features

Look, steering, size, reliability.

Review

This cars is my second honda purchase, my first being a civic dx in 99. I love veything about honda's reliability with my first car and now the RSX Type S has added great handling, incredible pick up, great high end speeds, and an appearance second to none. I would suggest this car to anyone who really enjoys driving a little too fast a little to often. As far as maintance i have had none which is right in line with honda's reputation. GO BUY IT TODAY!!


Best Features

6 speed transmission, sport fitting leather seats, 17 inche rims and low profile tires from the factory.


Worst Features

Fuel efficiency which may be impossible when the car has so much output.
