2004 Acura RSX Overview

Acura changed little for the 2004 RSX, preferring to leave its popular, entry-level coupe the same as the previous year. Available at the base trim or as the more powerful Type S, the 2004 RSX kept its reputation as a good car to drive and to tune.

The 2004 RSX is meant to house a manual transmission, and the stick shift comes standard on the base trim, and is the only option on the Type-S. The 2.0-liter I4 is rated at 160 horsepower for the base, and at 200 horsepower for the Type-S. Torque for each is right around 140 lb-ft.

Mileage is estimated at 27/33 for the standard coupe, 25/34 for the automatic, and 24/31 for the Type-S.

Drivers love the engine of this car, including the acceleration, handling, and tunability. There have been many complaints about road noise and about rattling from within the car.
