Great Car, Gas Milage Was Good As Well, Great Motor — the honda k-series motor is the best N/A 4 cylinder probably ever made other than an s2000. it revs beautifully and sounds great doing it. looks tough now that my brother has it and put lots of money into it

Pros: gas milage, HP to weight is good, nice handling, will beat stock 350z's from a roll(so don't let 350z guys tell you there cars are really fast cause there not!!)

Cons: loud with HKS exhaust, bumpy with the coilovers

Nice Car To Drive — the Honda manual transmissions have always been the best ones as they provide the smoothest shifts as well as a nice progressive clutch.

Pros: 6 speed

Cons: requires premium fuel

Not The Fastest, But Handles Like A Dream. — The red-line of 6800 makes it a fun car to drive in a straight line, and the amazing suspension makes city driving feel like you’re on a track! I love this car

Pros: Red line, Handling.

Cons: Loud ride quality

Reliable And Sporty Car — My 2002 RSX 5 speed manual was a great car to me. It had great acceleration for a 4 cylinder, and was certainly sporty enough to beat the other cars in its class. Although mine came to an untimely death due to some poor driving, had it not ended so abruptly we would still be together today.

Pros: Quick, good handling, awesome gas mileage (30+ mpg)

Cons: Tiny interior, notchy gearbox

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

Pros: Looks

Cons: Sway bars , ride hieght

2002 Acura RSX FWD with Leather Review
Brad says:
Ive long driven Subaru and Mazda, fan of both for different reasons, but when it was time for another car recently I decided on one Ive admired for too long. Took some time to find an RSX not modified, Canada here so one not rusted as well, glad I kept searching. I live in a big city, small is good. Its remarkable that a 2002 in 2019 still elicits looks, striking from every angle; expected Acura quality finishing inside and out. If sliding into a nicely bolstered leather seat and gripping a perfectly sized and perfectly chunky leather wrapped wheel makes you smile...this is it. In Canada there were three trim levels sold, this is the mid range Premium, leather, 160hp, moonroof, 16 wheels, while Ive no doubt a manual S offers up a lot more fun Im happy with my find, even in auto, easier in city driving anyway. Firm but for me very comfortable ride, good acceleration, fantastic crisp handling, bit of road noise—the car offers great fun and yet its fuel efficient (only the S requires premium but its what I use). Comfortable seats, super spacious hatch storage (I LOVE a hatchback), kind of token back seat but Im rarely with more than one person in the car anyway...another reason I like small cars, prefer the solo driving experience :) Happy with my buy, happy to get my RSX experience, happy for a sporty ride that comes with Honda reliability. Apart from lack of back seat space theres really not one issue with this car.

2002 Acura RSX Review
Brad says:
Id long admired the RSX, when I needed a new car, the RSX getting quite old now thought this should be the time. I found a not modified 02 (not S, in Canada there were 3 versions, this is Premium), low miles, great condition. Handling is so precise, brilliant drive, nicely bolstered front seats, acceleration is acceptable for me. Suspension is firm, you do feel the road, there is some noise, but I like that; Ive had the cushy ride, this is a nice change of pace. Love the interior, simplicity of design, expected Acura quality, love the exterior shape too. The only drawback I would mention is the backseat, if you have legs its a tough fit back there...but the hatchback (a perfect car design in my mind) offers a ton of storage. This is my first Honda, hoping for that Honda reliability! Gas mileage certainly improved over my Subaru, of course FWD vs AWD.

Looks/Style Ranked 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX worse.
"I like small so it wins there; more contemporary design, the Subaru is largely the same as it has been, to my mind a more aggressive stance and I love a short hatch rear, the Subaru is more traditional in that sense."
Value Ranked 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX worse.
"Ive just bought my 02 RSX, pricing was better on this than a WRX though they were harder to find. Better standard equipment (I like leather, I like a sunroof, I want heated seats and mirrors) from what I found car shopping. "
