Recently while browsing the web I found this post which I figured I would compile what was on the thread as well as provide and updated the list of common problems and problems that can occur with the RSX.

That being said I hope this helps you guys find fixes and solve issue with your cars. Also if I miss anything please contact me and I will update this Thread, Thanks!!

I would just like to throw out I have owned an RSX for around 7 years now. I have encounter some problems but most of these I haven't. I will try to provide my best answer and solutions. I am finding the problems and hopeful answers from research online!! Please do not use this as a go to for your car problems I am just trying to provide insightful help!!

Dash Rattle
I have had this problem myself. Here is a fix!! Also check your glove box sometimes the lock mech gets a little loose and will rattle on you. I personally took my car to have the rattle looked at and fixed.

I had this problem myself. I got out of my RSX after work to find my Rotor Bright Orange had to take a hammer to my stock rims to get it off. Thank GOD They were on!!
