2006 Acura RSX Type-S Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

The RSX type S is a great all around car. The exterior looks awesome. Engine is great. Has plenty of power in the top end. The midrange suffers. Interior design is nice. It's a simple design, but I still like it. Sound system is great. I wouldn't change anything about it. Transmission is one of the best I've driven. Throws are quick and light. Great feel. Pedals are good for heel-toeing. Brakes are nice and strong. Seats are awful. They support you well but will hurt you after about an hour. This car feels nice and solid, is pretty fun to drive. Plenty of interior storage space. Hatch has plenty of room for luggage and other junk.


Best Features

The acceleration is decent. In the top end though this is a blast to drive. Transmission is beautiful. Very little effort to move the shifter; the throws are quick and precise. Handling is pretty nice. Feels sharp and light around the corners. Simple interior design. Love it.


Worst Features

More low end power would be nice. SEATS! I've sat on concrete benchs that are more comfortable. Anything after an hour, and you will hurt. They are supportive but they do wear on you. No center arm rest makes cruising somewhat difficult.

Review

I have been driving this car every day for about months and haven't had to take it to get worked on once. While having a good amount of power you get good fuel mileage, can't beat that.The baking power is amazing the car will stop on a dime The RSX holds its value witch is good. This is my first car and I feel i made the right choice.


Best Features

Power!! sun roof, brakes.


Worst Features

Turbo

Review

If you live in an area that has rough roads, make sure you test drive before buying - this car does not respond well to rough road surfaces. A lot of noise transfers to the cabin and the ride is harsh. This is due to the sport suspension. I had an '03 Type S before the '06 and do not remember the ride being as tight/harsh. Asside from ride quality on less than perfect roads, this car is perfect - great gas mileage, a lot of fun to drive and it holds its value very well. One other known issue among 05-06 RSX owners is the dash rattles when the temps go below 50. Once the car's interior warms up, the rattle goes away. These issues aside, I would purchase this car again.


Best Features

Gas mileage, reliabilty, fun to drive.


Worst Features

Better ride quality on less-than-perfect roads. Better sub woofer for stereo - 8" Bose sub is not very good.

Great looking fast car for a great price. That v-tech motor is simply awesome and 31 highway miles, can't beat that either.

I love the 6 speed manual transmission, along with the very classy leather seat package.

None.
