Still, the RSX's approach to life's twisty moments was exalted more often than it was maligned. The MacPherson strut-type front suspension and double control-arm rear provided a thoroughly enjoyable balance of alertness and compliance, although some found that during truly spirited cornering, the inside front wheel would lighten up and spin a bit too quickly. During an outing at Michigan's Waterford Hills Raceway, the car's ease of use and amazing rev range made it an instant favorite. Wrote DeMatio, after consecutive stints in a Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S, a Honda Civic Si, and our RSX: "This is the best front-wheel-drive car I've had on the track today; there is understeer, but it's quite manageable. Steering is great, brakes are great, chassis is great."
