Car is not overly comfortable on long road trips. Rear visibility is poor. Blind spots are bad for lane changing. Backup camera is a must (I added this myself). Rear seats are small and cramped and uncomfortable. Hard to exit the car gracefully. Parts are noticeably expensive (had to replace starter recently). Car was sold in April 2016 and not replaced by another vehicle

I purchased a 2004 Acura RSX base model with 28,XXX miles on it a couple of months ago (I'd still be driving it if I hadn't rear ended somebody). In the time i had this amazing car, the only thing that went wrong was an o2 sensor and it only cost me $40 to replace. This car is absolutely impeccable! Everything about it is extremely amazing. The only complaints i had were the comfort of the seats at long car rides and the quirky shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. Other than that, I wish i still had this car.

Owned a base 2004 RSX for 167k and had minimal problems with it. Ownership has been painless and low cost. At 167k the engine is still strong, the transmission (auto) is slowly showing signs of wear but I think it has another 30-40k in it. Just great engineering.

I owned this car for 8 years and loved it. Such a great value for a car with all of the main luxury items you would want. I never had any major mechanical problems and always had fun driving this even though it was a stick and I lived in LA. Had to trade it in for a more family friendly car last year, but still miss driving it!

This has been a great car, very reliable, fun to drive! Don't know why Acura stopped making this model? Would buy another in a flash.
