SOLID. Feels like a proper entry level luxury sports car
Gas cap comes loose sometimes, triggering the CEL.
Some seat wear.
A few rattles.
2002 Base RSX Automatic
Handling is superb.
No body roll when cornering hard.
Automatic transmission – sport mode shifts fast and accurately.
Interior materials top notch.
Good low end torque.
Feels like a proper entry level luxury sports car.
Headlights do burn our more frequently than one would expect. Switched back to stock halogen bulbs, and this has seemed to have solved the problem.
Base stereo mediocre at best. Had to install a small subwoofer to fill in the low end.
Automatic transmission could use a 6th gear.
Back seat could use an additional inch or two of head clearance – but not too bad for a two door sport coupe.
Would like to have seen more sophisticated electronics – i.e. dash readout MPG, avg speed, avg MPG etc…
The car is SOLID, reviews are great, and the quality and reliability are what one would expect from Honda’s premium brand.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
