Why the 2003 Acura RSX?

Reliability & durability

I have had the car for five years with no problems and very little maintenance.


Its well weighted and responsive steering along with tight suspension make carving up traffic fun and effortless.

Fuel economy

With fuel prices rising I am very pleased with how efficient the car is with gas. If I decide to take it easy and not use my lead foot, I can get gas mileage that rivals any non-hybrid car of its size.

Powertrain performance

The Type-S variant has more than enough power and torque to be quite fun. I can cruise past other vehicles over mountain passes in 6th gear.

Exterior styling

It has a sporty yet understated style that does not look out of place at a race or formal occasions.

Why Not the 2003 Acura RSX?

Ride smoothness

On long trips, the tight suspension can firm seats can be exhausting.


At cruising speeds there is a considerable amount of wind and road noise.

Rear seat room & comfort

The rear seats are to be used strictly for short trips, pets, or children.
