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


Review

This is my first car after owning a Chevy Cavilier and this car is fantastic. I live in Miami and have to be in traffic alot but when I get a break in the road- it zips right out of those tight spots and gets ahead of alot of the other cars. I have been able to get out of traffic where a larger Mustang will get left behind. I don't see alot of RSX's around and when I do I think they look really hot on the road. My friends love my car and I have been challenged to race several times on the road- but of course, I am a safe driver. ;) Overall- this car handles like a pro, it looks great and the chics love it. Black with tinted windows and all the fixings- it is the Intergra I always wanted.


Best Features

The interior rocks- I feel like I am in a space ship. I always look at other interiors and still think this car has the best. The first time I bought it, an Infiniti G35 owner was looking all around it. Jelous? Probably not but at least curious. Phenomenal interior, 6000 miles still smells like new.


Worst Features

I would love to have a NAV system in it. The heated rearview mirrors are useless. I would love to have an MP3 connection. I will probably get something 2007 when it comes out- as long as there are more options. I would like to have all weather floor mats for the back seats.

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


Review

I maintain my RSX and it has never left me stranded. Its performance increased by using the highest octane gasoline. It handles well on curves, corners, turns, etc. It is a quiet ride and moreso its comfort. The shape of the car is out of this world. When I drive, people look at my car and think of it as you would a Ferrari!! I love it...my RSX is my 'baby' and gets rewarded for its quality and superb handling!


Best Features

My RSX is solid black. Its leather, speaker system, red interior dash, radio, controls...all match and wouldn't dare change them! My friends even like the red lighting on my dash, power window buttons,etc....it looks kewl!!!! :)


Worst Features

For the price paid, $25,XXX.XX, its qualtiy, it should have more horsepower. There are cheaper brands with more hp than this high quality vehicle. Not competitive! I expected more hp for this quick lightning vehicle. But the "low quality vehicles" like Chevrolet, VW-have more hp and less expensive.

Review

I have about 450 miles on my RSX, it is a well built car with great attention to details. The biggest suprise is the powertrain, it is very smooth and predictable, up to this point I was an old school guy in regard to bigger is better for engines. Yea my old Z28 would still run these new boy racers into the ground in a race but these cars are very refined and smooth. I love this car. Not one regret at all.


Best Features

Powertrain and handling. Domestic cars in its class cannnot compare on how this car handles.


Worst Features

Rear seat space, what is that? None to speak of in this car other than the seats.

Review

bought this for gas mileage (30 mpg/city & hwy combined) & reputation of Acura/Honda. Rear is mostly for stuff/doggies. Fun to drive/6100 miles & no problems. Car is used for work- great manueverability/turnarounds/tight spots. Good acceleration for hwy entrance. Sunroof is far forward so recommend a visor. Aftermarket arm rest avail for between front seats - would be nice if it was easily available. Not a family car. Trunk liner is a must have. Hope Acura looks at Hybrid model in the future as it would be great!


Best Features

Acceleration (yes, even the 4 cyl!) ease of access for controls/stereo; gas mileage, handling, sunroof, climate control system.


Worst Features

Don't need mirror on driver visor - pocket would be better, the plastic whatever on the rear seat in the middle is useless. Better adjustment for lower back & behind on driver seat - better storage for CD's under CD/radio
