Shame that 06 is the last year

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


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.
