Pros

second most powerfull inline 4 N/A car in america.

Cons

you can get a rsx for alot less and just cam it out and its fwd

25

Great Car. — the looks of the car could be a little better. the handling makes you feel like you cant drive to hard around a corner with out tripoding. when buying the car make sure 3rd gear dosent pop out some times and if so make sure worenty will cover it(very common problem with the syncros).

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Fun to drive, fairly practical, and solid overall.

Cons

The car has too many comprimises and was expensive when it was made.

Good For What It Is. — The car is great overall. It's a solid performer for it's model year, but in general it just doesn't keep up with today's sport compacts. The factory tires are just not up to the task, and the lack of a limited slip differential really hampers cornering and overall grip. The car is solid through and through although the gearbox does come with some nagging issues that i never would expect out of Honda. Appearance-wise, the a-spec kit is a little much, but its functional and does make the car look a bit more aggresive. The car has a great aftermarket...but only if you're willing to shell out the cash. Budget options all pretty much suck. However as a daily driver I definitely couldn't ask for anything better.

Fun to drive!

Cons

Very sensitive suspension.

25

Acura Rsx Type-s — I love my car! It's tons of fun to drive, especially on long trips. Unfortunately, it is not a fan of the crappy roads in the area as the suspension is very sensitive to potholes! This car has great handling and corners very well! Additionally, it has excellent acceleration for those moments when it is necessary to get away from the idiot drivers!

Pros

Fun to drive, Good gas mileage, Sporty, Great looks, Great handling

Cons

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

45

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

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.
