2003 Acura RSX Overview

The 2003 RSX represented the second year in production for Acura's entry-level coupe. Available in standard trim or as the sportier Type-S, the replacement for the Integra continued to impress its drivers with its sporty ride, tight suspension, and relatively low price.

The engine for the standard coupe is a 2.0-liter I4 rated at 160 horsepower, while the Type S upped the compression ratio from 9.8:1 to 11.0:1, gaining 40 extra horsepower (up to 200 horses). Mileage for the automatic transmission is rated at 24/33; the base 5-speed manual gets 27/33; the Type S gets 24/31 mpg.

Drivers love driving this car. They laud its quick acceleration and tight handling. However, there have been complaints about rattling and noise, especially at higher speeds. Some have also complained about uncomfortable seats, especially when driving longer distances.
