"I have had many many cars in my lifetime... Chevy Camaro Z28's with LS1's in them, TransAm's etc. They were truly fun cars (ones that you shouldn't depend on in the snow and ice, but nonetheless they were fun) and let me tell you... the Acura RSX type S (I bought brand new) would have given all of them a run for their money! Speaking of money... its value RUNS CIRCLES around ANY American or German car. Explain to me how a BMW 328i a year newer with less miles was offered 3,000$ LESS than I was on a trade in? And the BMW started at nearly DOUBLE the retail price the Acura did! Unbelievable!"

Rock solid reliability and fun to drrive

"I bought this car in 2003 and still own it. I love it and I am constantly telling people that I will forever be an Acura lover. This car has been the best car that I have ever own. I have not had any problems with it until January 2015 when I had to replace the starter; other than that I have had no problems, ever. I still get complements on this car all the time. I do not see very many of them on the road these days but then when I bought this one I did not see many of them. I am waiting for Acura to make another RSX 'cause I know I can't keep this forever...or who knows maybe I can. My son drove my car the other day and said I can not believe how good this car rides...and he restores cars all the time. I love love my ACURA!!"

A driver's car that's a blast to drive.

"I bought my 2004 RSX base (manual) only 3.5 months ago with just 16,930 miles on it from an elderly woman friend who kept it garaged and drove it only a bit each month. Couldn't believe my luck. The owner had all the service records; no problems, just regular oil changes, a new battery and one tire rotation. It's a blast to drive. I'm 56 and have owned a lot of nice cars; this is already my favorite, by far. I like to drive, and this is a driver's car. Steering is responsive and quite good for FWD. Acceleration is excellent, especially from a roll. Shifting gears is smooth. The interior is driver-centric; the dash and seat et al just wrap around me. The CD player did stop playing a month ago - but that was an opportunity as I put in a nice double-din CD receiver, 4 volt, Bluetooth and HD radio that allowed me to set color to red to match the dash at night. Sounds fantastic on the stock speakers, and I'm an audiophile of sorts. Made me love this car even more. My biggest surprise was on a drive from Atlanta to Chicago. It's rated 31 MPG Highway; I got 33 on the trip and I'm not a sedate driver. I took it to the local Acura dealer for the first oil change and the guy there recognized it at once and couldn't believe I'd bought the car; said he knew people who'd kill to get an RSX with that mileage and wish he knew it was for sale. Plan on having this car for many years to come; that is, a lot of fun driving to come."

Drive this car and change your attitude.

"I have all the service records. Two sets of wheels and tires: the stock 16" Acura rims with M/S tires and a set of 18" chrome seven spoke rims with performance tires. I bought the car in September 2007 and it has always been garaged."

"This is my husband's hand-me-down. I had a two year older version of the same model that was beaten up in a hail storm. This has been a splendid car. Absolutely no mechanical problems, great AC, good radio and CD (probably better than good, I'm not a connoisseur), great handling, OK gas mileage. I still like the looks of the SRX-s after all these years. It's time for us to get a four-door car so I will have to say goodbye to this baby."
