Acura makes amazing long lasting vehicles.

I have had no major problems with this car. It is a pleasure to drive and has only needed the occasional maintenance. One drawback is major issues can be expensive if they do occur. So far I have only had to replace the clutch. That was the most major repair in all these years.

Vehicle does not get very good gas mileage.

Does not get very good gas mileage and does not have a very good outside seal from rain/ water. Other than that the vehicle has a good interior with leather seats and a good radio, the anti theft system is good almost too good, I get locked out of it occasionally.

2002 Acura rsx (manual, base model).

The first rsx I ever owned was an 04 & with that initially I had an electrical problem which led to it being a problem with my starter. We changed the starter out but couldn't figure out the electrical problem. Even the technician couldn't figure it out.
