"Being that this was the last year for the RSX must be why the Acura quality was lacking in a few areas. My main complaint has been with the exterior, ie. the paint and cheap design and fit of the body panels. Overall engine performance is excellent."

I'm going to miss this car!!!

"I've owned my Acura RSX Type S for 12 years and it's time to let someone else take the helm of this little gem. While I'm aware that a car is an inanimate object, I can't help but feel that I'm losing a really, really good friend. My RSX never left me stranded and never let me down! I can only hope that my next car gives me as much dependability and joy of driving as my Acura RSX Type S."

Quality, Stylish and Reliable!

"I have owned a 2005 Acura RSX since 2007 and it has been the absolute BEST investment. I have had no mechanical issues and only routine maintenance costs. The interior looks like brand new despite baking in the Florida sun on a daily basis, showing the quality of an Acura product. It is a car that I would absolutely buy again if they still were made. It is a shame Acura stopped making this model. If you are looking for a reliable, stylish and quality vehicle, look no further. This is the one for you!"

I wish Acura still made this car!

"I have had my car for 12 years and have had minimal problems with it. I am in the market for a new(er) car since, after 12 years in the harsh Midwest weather, she has seen better days (appearance wise). It has been very hard for me to decide on a new car since I have had such good luck with mine and I love the way it drives. I have even gone back and forth on getting the repairs that are needed done as opposed to buying again. It would have made my life so much easier if Acura would have just continued making the RSX!"

Best car ever owned!

"I have owned this car for almost 10 years. Even after 200K miles, the car has the combination of power and economical aspects that it had in 2004. Outside of very routine maintenance (oil / air filter / brakes) there has been nothing that "has to be done". Of all the cars I have owned, I can say without a doubt, this has been the best purchase I have ever made! My hope is to get another 200K out of this car and will try to keep it as long as it continues to run."
