2003 Acura RSX Type S 2.0 from North America
Disappointed at Acura quality
Driver side window is malfunctioning. Gear shift top was scratched.
Headliner was stained.
Car pulls very hard to the right when braking... dangerous.
Seats uncomfortable on trips over an hour.
Paint quality is questionable, clear coat scratches very easily.
Car has decent acceleration, but lacks low end power. Need to get high revs to get it to go... and I have the Type S.
Gauges look very nice at night.
Fit and finish is not what I would expect from Acura, have had too many problems with the car.
Car has braking problem or tire problems. When braking at low speeds, it grabs the grooves in the road and pulls hard to the right.
I have thought about selling the car... very disappointed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The problems you seem to have had would lead me to believe that the car was used or perhaps a dealer demo model. A new RSX Type-S shouldn't have exhibited any of the problems you have mentioned. Have you taken the car to the dealer to address these issues? My car was in excellent condition and the performance and fit and finish are unmatched in this price range. I am sad to hear your disappointment with the car, it really is an unbelievable machine. I would definitely take the vehicle back to the dealer so that each issue can be taken care of. If the car is brand new with those problems, I would consider asking the dealer to replace the car.
