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


I owned a '90 Integra that was an excellent fun to drive car that got handed down to both my kids. The '05 RSX-S is twice a much fun to drive. The handling is exemplary, the smooth, high-revving engine gives sensual pleasure to everyday driving, and the 6-speed transmission is impressively precise in shifting. Those that complain about the transmission might be happier driving M-1 tanks for the First Armored Division. This is a well- executed, high-spirited, 2+2 sports coupe at a very fair price. It gives the most pleasure when it is driven with skill - not flogged like a dirt bike.

Best Features

Chunky, yet clean, exterior styling. Precise sterring and handling. Smooth running engine that loves to make the tachometer climb. Comfortable front seats. Bose sound system is wonderful for classical music and jazz.

Worst Features

Would like to have a storage pocket on the back of the front seats. Also a latch to open the hatchback from inside the car.
