The RSX is a reliable, sporty hatchback coupe that offers good fuel economy and excellent handling. Edmunds.com rates the RSX positively in terms of its reliability and relatively affordable pricing for a luxury model. Used RSXs tend to have high resale values so you may wish to research other used automobile brands if price is your main consideration in purchasing.

The base model RSX features leather seats, keyless entry, power windows and mirrors, cruise control, moon roof, and a CD player. The RSX Type-S additionally features an in-dash six-CD changer, extra horsepower, and a six-speed manual transmission. 2005 and 2006 RSXs have updated exterior styling and better steering and suspension than older model RSXs.

The RSX provides comfortable seating for adults in the front seats, but headroom may be cramped in the back seats. The car has 18 cubic feet of trunk space when the rear seats are folded down.

As with any used car, thorough research is key to negotiating the lowest price on an RSX to determine the going market rate and the condition of the particular RSX you are interested in purchasing.
