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


I bought this car after a 3 year lease on a VW Jetta 1.8T. I had so many problems with that car so I decided to turn my back on VW. This car offers a fun ride which will make you smile almost everytime you drive. It first really buttoned down in the corners and has loads of grip. Even though the torque output is modest all you need to do is take this car up to redline once and you will be sold. I mean this car (6.1) is quicker than a base porsche boxter(6.5)and for $20,000 less. The engine is smooth and refined and the shifter is crisp and accurate. I have not driven a car with a shifter that is as smooth at this price. This car also gets great gas mileage.

Best Features

Gas mileage, performance,the shifter, handling, and tons of standard features, hatchback versitility

Worst Features

a limited slip differential, and a slightly more refined engine note.
