2005 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

If you want a fun and cute sports car that it not outragiously expensive, the RSX is the perfect car. It handles great and with the price of gas, you can't beat the gas milage. It also gives you the option of shifting gears for those times when you need a little more pick up.


Best Features

Style, stero, sunroof


Worst Features

Easier way to get in and out of the back seat

2005 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Have had this car for 10 months, and I love every bit of it. Color (Milano red) great choice, fast for a 4 cylinder, sleek looking, interior is snug unless you’re a small family. Seats just hold you in while steering and dashboard is easily accessible.


Best Features

Interior is snug but understandable, while making you feel safe and in control.


Worst Features

When shutting doors with all windows closed could close tighter, not complaining cause doors are fairly heavy and wide for this hatchback. I would like doors to close with more air tightness.

2005 Acura RSX Hatchback 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my RSX at the end of October. I traded in a '98 accord coupe and wanted to stick with a car made by Honda. I've always been impressed by their reliability and I continue to be with my RSX. The handling of this car is great. It takes corners beautifully and has a decent amount of acceleration. The leather interior is luxurious, with everything in easy access for the driver. The seats are very comfortable and offer great support. Some bi-xenon headlights would be nice! Overall I am extremely happy with the choice I made.


Best Features

Exterior and interior design


Worst Features

Xenon headlights

Review

I just bought my brand new 05 RSX, and I love it. I traded a 01 VW Jetta and I love the RSX so much more in its handling and styling. This little car handles great, has good build quality, and loves to be pushed with little fuss


Best Features

All the standard features, no other options except leather.


Worst Features

Better standard sound system(speakers)

Review

I just bought my car 12/18/2004 and it
was worth the wait and money. The
overall design and layout of the car
is just so intuitive. Sure there are
things lacking such as navigation, HID
headlights, and an armrest, but I'm
just so pleased with the overall
vehicle I can overlook the
shortcommings. The performance is
good enough for me with the 5 speed
auto although I haven't got on it
because I'm still breaking it in. I'm
surprised how smooth the car rides and
it's fairly quiet. I have an 2001
Acura CL Type S and to me the only
difference is in the power and the
interior quality, rich and soft
materials for the headliner, dash,
door, and other surfaces. Overall,
it's worth the money!


Best Features

I like the new, cloth seats, they are more comfortable than previous generations. I'm a big car audio nut and this car is "aftermarket stereo friendly" no weird openings for the headunit and speakers and 110 amp alternator. Decent gas mileage 25/34 with decent HP/torque 160/141.


Worst Features

Nicer materials for the interior surfaces of the doors, dash, and hoodliner. That hard plastic stuff screams cheap.
