Cons

Slow to accel, rough ride on bad roads, 3rd gear problem

The Rsx-s — Acceleration's a bit low, but it's a very smooth ride on great roads. It has a problem with the third gear, not being able to stay in gear immediately after you shift. Appearance is great. Decent gas mileage, doesn't need tons of maintenance, just synthetic oil every five thousand miles. This car is amazing to drive; you'll love taking corners and curves! I would recommend this car to any Japanese car fan, who loves to drive actively.

Pros

Power, handeling, appearance, gas mileage, build quality

Cons

Third gear, A/C, insurance

Two Years Of Driving — I bought the car for the engine. It gets great gas mileage in regular driving, and takes off when revved. The seats are comfortable for someone of my stature (6ft). It has excellent build quality. The bad: Third gear sucks, the A/C sucks too much power at the low end, the seats steal change, and it's ridiculously expensive to insure. I consider these issues to be minor. In the end, it's a fantastic. It's practical for daily driving, and fun at the same time.

Pros

2.0 liter 210 k20z1 engine
thats 100 Hp per liter, not many engines can say that.
VTAK

Cons

Low torque
4 finger tire gap
Every RSX only comes with 100 "Vtec", so use them wisely

Showing The Acura/honda Community How To Do It Right — The stock body design is absolutely a work of art, I don't remember any stock body having the designs of a aftermarket one, while keeping the car as clean as possible. The interior is also very nice, the addition of black leather (racing seats design) and red lights really bring out the aggressive look/feel while driving. Im very impressed by the handling performance of the stock car, allowing it to take corners which other car might have trouble with. Basically if your looking for a car thats able to deliver without the 30k price tag, then this is a car you should look into, able to become a street car or a track car.

Pros

That the speakers sound really good and there isn't much to add on to the car because it comes with everything.

Cons

That it's not big enough for a family.

Great Car, Big Fan Of Acura's! I Like Every Car That They Practically Put Out. — It's a fast car. It is equiped with nice accesseries. It is a really fun car to drive! Acura RSX can pull off any color and still look nice and sporty. It gets good gas mileage and last for miles and miles. Acura's improve on the body each year and the equipment that is put into the car. There is always something new to look forward to when the new Acura's come out.

Pros

Quick, Sharp Looking, Fun 8300 rpm redline, and 31 mpg highway

Cons

8300 redline isn't fun in city driving, and ride comfort isn't great

Economy Car With Ferrari Dreams — Leave it to Honda to make a car that gets 28/31 mpg, goes 0-60 in under 7 seconds, and can dance with an STi through a slalom. On back roads this car is a blast, i've never flogged a car this hard, and my tires show it. Even when this car comes undone in a corner, all you have to do is either let off the gas on stomp on the gas to save it, it's miraculous. On the highway, the big gears in it allow for smooth passing even in 6th gear. However thanks to the hard suspension and short wheelbase, it is really a rough ride.
