Default 2006 rsx problems

I am having a very unpleasant experience TRYING to purchase a 2006 rsx
base model with leather. I live in NY and no dealer within a 50 miles
seems to have them. Most lots have only 1 or 2 or none. I am being
treated like a space alien because I want to do silly things like a
test drive and actually look at the car before I buy it. I have been
told that "the picture is a good representation" and other
ridiculous things.

Is anyone else having these problems. I have also been told the wait
time could be a couple months!!

I have a few questions - I am looking at non type s w/leater

1) I want an automatic. Is there any difference in appearance of the
type s and base. I want leather. I know the main differences are the
spoiler, audio, wheels and engine. Cosmetically is there any difference
in appearance.

2) Does the car have an alarm or just a keyless entry? Do the lights
blink to help you find your car in a crowded parking lot at night.
When I put an aftermarket deck in my civic, it disabled the remote
entry which is built into the stereo. Is that the case here? Can I tell
them I don't want any deck at all and have them deduct it from the
price since I want to go aftermarket?

3) I was quoted 21850 for it, is that a fair price.

4) I inquired about putting type-s stock wheels onto a non type s and
was told that it would cost an additional 3300 dollars. What kind of
flexibility do they have to haggle that down

5) Does the moonroof go in like my 98 civic or out and on top of the
car

6) Does it have heated leather seats?



Thanks in advance

Not much you can do, its a popular car, ususally they sell once they get
them. I just bought mine about a month ago, it was the last 05 they had.
The sales men I bought it from claimed he himself had already sold 15 of the
06's, and they were now just waiting for them to arrive.

Type S has 17" tires, base has 16" tires. I do belive the TYpe S also has
different side skirts and front lip. You can easy buy the Type S side
skirts and front lip and upgrade if you want.

Has keyless entry, which works as a basic alarm. If you lock the doors with
the remote, then someone unlocks them from the inside of the car(without the
remote) it sets off the panic. I've removed my stereo and added my own, and
this did not have any effect. You can press the panic to find your car, or
if you press the lock button 2 times the lights flash and the horn honks.
Automatic is slower and worse on gas then the manual version.

I paid $27000 for mine, but thats in CDN $$

Not sure what your dealership is like, but you can find Stock Type S Rims on
Ebay for way less then that, or can buy a nice set of aftermarket rims for
less

It opens out and back, or out and up

heated seats and heated mirrors

> Thanks in advance


My previous car was a civic, and I know have the RSX...I now look forward to
driving, although I wish I had the added power of the type S...Type S also
has true I Vtec, base does not, although acura will tell you it does

Good website for rsx info

Do a consumer reports price report if you are serious about buying.
Although it might not do much good if demand is high.

On canadian versions. The US version doesn't have heated seats or
mirrors, AFAIK. Mine doesn't, at least.

No heated seats or mirrors in the US hey...I think I might have read that
somewhere actually...I guess Acura thinks it doesn't get cold in the states.

Yea, I don't know what they're thinking. Maybe they're available as an
option?

I live in the south, and you'd think heated seats would be an unneeded
luxury, but it gets COLD here in the mornings in the winter. I had 2
volvos that had heated seats, and I miss them - you might only use
them 20 or so times a year, but they're pretty durn fantastic every
one of those 20 times.

My 2005 type S has heated mirrors. The switch is located adjacent to the
mirror adjusting control.

Default Re: 2006 rsx problems

I have put 500 dollars(refundable) to hold an rsx in magnesium, since I
couldn't find one

I can never post on clubrsx, it lets me log in, but says I don't have
privleges to post

A couple other questions
1)What color is the rsx in the interactive showroom on acura.com
2)Where can I find a good picture of the magnesium rsx aside from
acura's website.
3)Do the red guages distract at night?
4)How good are the headlights? Are they super white from a distance?
How bright are they?
5)Is the moonroof tinted?
6)How is the ride? I won't be able to test drive until a week from now,
but everyone says it is such a noisy car(wind, bumps, etc.)

Thanks alot in advance

The red gauges are fine

Headlights are adequate.

Yes

My type S has a great feel of the road, it is not a luxury type car. I get
no wind noise but you can hear the engine, transmission and road noise
however I do not find this objectionel. I understand the non type S is a bit
quieter and has a softer ride. The handeling of this car is awsome, I love
this car. Also in town I am getting 29MPG and I don't baby it.

You need to post 25 responses before you can start your own posts. If you
do a search, you could probably find some pictures there

like i said do a search on clubrsx and there should be lots

It looks damn cool, but never distracts me

Very nice headlights, not super white
> How bright are they?


probably brighter then average

It is definately a firm ride, at first I did NOT like it at all, you feel
every little bump. After having it a couple months, and then going back to
my moms toyota, I must say I now much prefer the stiff sespention to the
loose suspention of other cars
