You are in the Acura RSX
What is this discussion about?
Acura RSX, Coupe, Hatchback
Oct 22, 2002 (2:50 pm)
There are NO major or minor differences between the 2002 and 2002 RSXs, except the following:
1.) MSRP is different (e.g. 2003 RSX-S is $100 more than 2002 model).
2.) Firepepper Red has been replaced by Redondo Red Pearl.
3.) The 2003 RSX can purchased w/ the "Factory Performance" package [rip off!].
Check Edmunds' 2003 Acura RSX review for confirmation.
There is no official word for when the RSX Type-R will be introduced to North America, if ever.

Thanks for the info!!! Let me know if you hear anything else.

You're welcome. I don't think there'll be any other news about the '03 RSX, but if I hear anything else, I'll post it here.

hey, what new changes will be on the 03 rsx? Will it be better than the 02?

You didn't read my post #1459, did you?!

what kind of car do you drive. Im 17 and my mom said she is going to get me a new car. I'm going to get a 03accord coupe EX v6 auto or rsx leather auto. I like the rsx cuz it small and look nice. I like the accord cause it come with navigation system and I more room. Got any suggestions?
#1534 of 2585 Is the V6 coupe out already?
Oct 29, 2002 (2:01 pm)
I did not think it was out yet.
Kevin - Are you looking for a sporty type car or a comfortable cruiser? Do you mainly drive on the highway, or on side streets? Do you usually drive short distances (10 miles or less)?
The Accord is faster 0-60, is quieter, and probably has a nicer interior.
The RSX is sportier, better handling (probably even if you do get the supposed sports package that is comming out for the Accord coupe) and is generally more fun to drive.
The Accord will be much quieter and have a much better ride, especially on the highway. Does that help?
Oh, finally, an RSX is MUCH cheaper (~+$5K)
Oct 29, 2002 (5:13 pm)
The rsx and accord have good resale value that why I want either of them. I would get an acura type S but it stick and i'm not allowed 2 get stick. The acura rsx with leather auto is only 160 horse and i don't think that is enough power. The new midsize accord is big and expensive 30k+. My sister just got the new altima 3.5SE and I want a coupe now cause my sister has a sedan. My sister and me can always swtich cars. I wanted a 325ci but it cost alot for a new one. My mom won't let me buy used cars cause she said there lemons. What other car do you think are good and have good resale value that you recommend?
Oct 29, 2002 (7:26 pm)
Not all used cars are lemon. I suggest you look at cars no older than 3 years and with less than 35,000 miles on them. There's a good chance that these cars were leased (*coughBMW3Seriescough*) and the owner took very good care of them. But of course, if your mom insists on getting you a new car, don't fight it!
#1537 of 2585 RSX base vs Type S

I heard the base has a nicer ride on the freeway. Is this true? Also, what's the big deal between the two if there really is no noticeable difference until what, 5600 rpm? I rarely rev that high and not sure I really want to unless I cant pass the sucker next to me. I go out of state every week driving 520miles and I really want something both sporty and with a decent ride. I found the 02 civic sedan has a better ride than the RSX or is it just me?
