Best Acura rsx model of its time.

My 05 rsx is absolutely amazing. It has 150000 miles on it and still runs beautifully. The car runs like a dream the gas mileage is absolutely outstanding. It's not expensive to fill up. Great all around car. Especially good for first time and new drivers.

This car is discontinued since 2006, so you cannot find it anymore.

This car is discontinued from Acura, but overall I drive this car for almost 10 years, everything is good, no major issue, run smoothly and looks nice. The only problem is since this car is sports car, so it doesn't fit many people in the car.

- J Y

The most important thing to know about the Acura rsx is that It's quick and fun.

My 2005 Acura rsx has been the most reliable vehicle anyone could ask for. a 13 years and 130, 000 miles the car drives and feels like new. The only work needs was new suspension a 100, 000 miles as could be expected.
