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


This car has a nice combination of fuel economy, reliability and performance. That said, it does have some negatives. Mine came with red paint that after 4 years was severely faded. Had it repainted. I'm 6' and of average build and weight and found the seats very uncomfortable. I'm also an upholsterer. I rebuilt and reupholstered the seats in a faux suede (were leather). They are now comfortable. Like most Hondas, excessive road noise. I completely removed the interior and applied sound deadening materials. This insulated the cabin to outside noise, but road noise will still be transmitted into the cabin. The project goal: create a luxury sport coupe. Goal shortfall: road noise.

Best Features

Push down (way down) on the accelerator on a curvy road and it goes where you point it. Fuel economy with performance. Nicer exterior design as compared to the Si, its sibling. A friend said "your car looks like its going fast" (it was parked at the time).

Worst Features

My main complaint would have to be the the inherent road noise. I think that this is a problem that Honda needs to address in many of its vehicles. In my opinion, if they do that, there won't be any better value for the money.
