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


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.
