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


I had an '04 that creaked and groaned with body flex and some other problems as well so the dealer bought it back from me and sold me this one. Much improved structure, smoother ride (with bigger wheels), infinitely more comfortable seats, the boy racer rear wing is finally gone, and the exhaust note is better. This is one fun car to drive and knowing it's a Honda, it'll last. 0-60 time cut from 6.3 to 6.2? awesome! Build quality has been improved and it's look isn't so animated. Still very irked that there is no center armrest, no XM option, can't play MP3's, and no express up/down on passenger side.

Best Features

210 hp, 6-speed, seats, handling, sound system

Worst Features

Only Acura in line up w/o XM option, Bose sounds great but can't play MP3's, not iPod ready either, express up/down on both windows instead of just one.
