A little hard on gas..

35

They Should Make These Cars Again:) — Performance its acceleration pretty good, the braking its great, also the handles wonderful.. Build Quality not too bad:) For the cost of ownership for the gas mileage, the car only gets around 500kms to a tank of gas:(.. Build Quality:)

Great Look, Easy to Mod, Decent Performance

Cons

No Torque

Great Car — Overall great car! Love the feel and look of the car. Easy to mod, which is a plus for my modding habits. The horsepower is okay but really lacks in the torque area as most Acura/Hondas do. Like I said though overall great reliable car.

Pros

Performance, Appearance and Interior

Cons

2nd gear grind, 3rd gear pop out.

02 Acura Rsx-s — In 2002 when the RSX was first made, it was the fastest fwd four cylinder car in the world. Stock that is. Cost isn't that bad for a new one but used it's even better. 3rd best car ive ever drove. One would be the Infiniti g35 Coupe. Second would be a 2006 Subaru WRX STi. Last thing to note is it had a wide variety of aftermarket parts.

MPG, fun to drive, Handles like it's on rails

Cons

No F1 by far,  a little less fun under 6k on the Tac

2002 Rsx Type-s — Great car, gets upwards of 30+ mpg when you drive it nice on the freeway, and also still has enough get up and go to get you to sixty in just under 7 seconds (my best time is 6.9). No Ferrari, but it is a nice intercity driver that makes for lots of fun.

quick, cheap, good gas mileage

Cons

not enough power

35

Acura Rsx - Fun Little Go Kart — Great little go kart-esque coupe. Wish it were the type-s though - not enough power in this baby! Handling is great though, this thing takes turns beautifully. Havn't had to repair anything major in it - just about to lose the tranny after 100k miles. Great first car, but I still wish I had a skyline GT-R

02 Rsx-s — Car was a great car top speed Govened was 120mph, handled like it was on rails, could eat Mustangs for any day of the week. Add a cold air intake to the mix and then u will be really blowing the doors of some of the other more popular choice cars. And it was a blast to drive

EVERYTHING!!

Cons

NONE!!

Rsx — I LOVED this car!! I'm a compulsive car buyer, so when this car came out and replaced the Integra, I had to have one.When I worked at Honda, my Used Car manager went to the auction and bought it for me. It came directly from American Honda, was never titled and only had 1000 miles on it! Unfortunetly my love came to an end when I dated a guy who ALWAYS wanted to drive the car...which forced me to buy another car before I couldnt get rid of the RSX anymore. So, no more RSX, no more a$$hole boyfriend

Pros

Best dash of any car I've owned (make more like this Honda!)  Respectable handling and acceleration.

Cons

Bland exterior, somewhat cheap interior plastics.

55

Gone But Not Fogotten — A big leap over the Integra, the RSX Type-S brought the smallest Acura more in line with the rest of the Acura lineup by adding a slew of luxury features and higher level of performance. While it's 200 HP appears impressive, the i-VTEC engine never seemed to fulfill it's promise of sports car performance. Reserving it's power for a VTEC surge at about 5200 RPMs, the Type-S was great for highway sprints, but always seems numb on the daily side road commute. Build quality was exceptional though and for a car in it's class, it was a performace deal.
