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


Review

I bought a 2006 RSX Type S in July of this year. A huge upgrade from my previous car! The firm but supple ride, well bolstered and supportive seats, responsive steering, sharp handling, rev-happy engine, and 6-speed gearbox just makes the car a blast to drive. It is comfortable enough for me to commute 100 miles round trip to school twice a week and 15 miles round trip to work 5 days a week. The gas mileage is great too, even when in lots of spirited driving time I still manage over 22 mpg all city. If I stick to ho-hum commuting I get just under 30 mpg with a 60/40 city/highway mix of driving. The only let down is that they discontinued production of this car for 2007 and beyond.


Best Features

2.0L engine with its 8100 RPM redline, 6-speed close ratio gearbox, wheel design, supportive leather seats, excellent steering weight and feel, clean interior design.


Worst Features

Lower stock ride height. Higher performance tires. Limited slip differential. Taller 6th gear for cruising. Heated seats and navigation options.

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


Review

This car is very quick, and peppy. The 6th gear is a bit tricky getting into if you are not used to having a 6th gear. Acura also fixed the 3rd gear problem with the '05-'06 RSX Type S. It use to be notchy, or crunchy, but it is fixed now. The leather is very nice, and automatic climate control is a cery nice feature. The Bose upgrade is awesome!


Best Features

The 6 speed manual trasnmission is awsome and tight. Very sporty feeling.


Worst Features

I wish that it had some heated seats, and both the driver and passenger had lower lumbar support.

Review

Bought my RSX on presidents day 2005. I have since put 40k miles on it, most of it drag racing at my local track. Its been down the 1/4 mile at least 150-200 times, pulling 1.9 60fts on Drag Radials and it never once complained one bit. It's as solid as the day I bought it, no squeaks, no rattles, no engine or transmission problems. When I'm bored of the track, I take it to the canyons and fall in love with it all over again, hearing that engine sing to me at 8000+ rpms while snicking through that perfect gearbox is heaven. This is absolutely the best car I've ever owned. ZERO PROBLEMS, rock solid reliability!!


Best Features

Engine/performance, appearance, great sound system, great leather and driving dynamics. Handling is great! 13.6@102mph in the 1/4 with I/H/E/Hondata! Just bolt ons and it responds incredible to modification.


Worst Features

Maybe navigation, HIDs standard. Other than that, I can't think of much to improve on a perfect sports coupe!

Review

Pros: Fun to drive. Great handling. Good gas mileage. Looks good Cons: Stiff ride but it is the price you pay for good handling. Small backseat but that is how a sports car is.

2006 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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, don’t expect any more.
