I would get your alternator checked. It could be bad and that would cause your new battery to not be getting a charge.

it is always harder to start in the cold. sounds kindof normal. But as long as the starter is making the engine turnover then the battery is fine. You might want to check the ignition/spark componets. Replace air filter if need be. Check the fuel system.

The RSX has a very small battery, 300 CCA, and has a hard time in cool or cold weather. I replaced it with a Sears Diehard, 495 CCA, and the problem went away.

Spark PLUGS, distributor Cap or Wires. Check those.Your 2004 RSX should still be under the warranty, so take it to the dealer.
