Acura RSX, oldie but goodie!

2002 Acura RSX Auto

Although it's a little 'old school' and has 200k+ miles, the REX has been a pretty reliable car! It was supposed to be my oldest teen's 'first' car, but it wasn't cool (new) enough for her! I love that it's great on gas ' I get 350+ miles from a full tank of gas. Because of its age some of the interior rubber trim has started to come off, so that's annoying and I've got to fix. Engine components for the most part have been reliable. Previous owner kept up with maintenance and repairs so it's doing its job! Paint does need some work as it's fading in some spots, maybe just needs a good buffing. Overall I've been pleased with the RSX for daily commuting!

It has the option to drive in manual without the clutch.

Having a rear wheel drive vehicle is difficult in the winter but I've found that with the right winter tires the car drives just fine. I like small cars and the RSX is just the right size for me. I don't feel enclosed in a small space and I can see over the steering wheel.
