This is a very cool looking and pleasure to driving Japanese coupe. The road noise is notified as a light weighted Japanese sporty car with a little harder struts system.
A sexy appearance. Powertrain and handling. Warranty. Comfortable front bucket seats. Easy to use knobs. It's her last existing year, no more such economy Acura in the near future. A replacement - TSX coupe is likely to coming next year.
Lack of semi-luxury equipments, such as remote garage opener, temperature indicator, road PC, and useful compartments. Some purchasing options would be helpful. Since it will be the last year model for RSX, dont expect any more.
Used to drive a BMW 330ci coupe but decided to change after a relocation due to my work. I was looking to buy a long term car. I looked at various coupes to replace my "baby", and ended up with an RSX (wanted lower car payments). Although not a BMW, for the money, I do believe it is a great choice if you want a sporty car, without spending the big $$$. If you are in definite need for the performance, go for the Type S.
Fun to drive. good interior, good feel on the steering wheel. The transmission has guick gear changes while in manual mode. The seats are comfortable (I drive an hour to work every day). Overall good fun car to drive.
Strut noise will haunt you. It would be the most embarrassing new car you would ever own. The noise started 3 months after I got the car (3700 miles. They kept saying they are working on a permanent fix. Its Aug as of this review date. NO FIX!!!! Worst part. The dealer refused to replace the struts several times. I had to go to another dealer to have my struts replaced. But they say the noise will come back. I guess we just have to replace the struts every 15000 miles
The perfect blend of a daily driver and a back road driver with the ability to exhilerate. This car can be driven as two different cars, below 4k rpm and above 4k rpm. Take your pick and you won't be disappointed. Be aware though that the RSX and from what I have learned the TSX have issues with the front struts. The right front strut on my car began making noise at 500 miles, now at 7200 miles and no fix yet from the minds in Japan. Other than a minor paint blemish this is the only fault I've found with the car. Seats are great, providing a comfortable driving position, although extended drives become somewhat tiresome. Auto headlamps would be nice.
