Recently bought an RSX 03 from a Honda dealership. I have noticed that
each time I slow down and brake or pick up speed there is a noticeable
clicking noise that I'm told is the activation of this security feature.

I've had mixed feedback from Acura service centres. Honda has been
useless. Some say its a feature of the '03 car, others say its way too load
and others that it should not be happening. I test drove others and did
not notice this.

This is a big miss by Acura if its standard. I do find it hard to believe that
for a car of this stature that this annoying noise is typical.

Any experience /comments from other owners.

Cheers

Sounds like it might be a bad/loose CV joint or a problem in the ABS system,also check wheel bearings.Have had all of these problems associated with a clicking noise.Sure isn't a normal sound no matter the car or age of the car.Good luck

Its for sure coming from the gear area. They actually replaced the solenoid component. I still can't believe they think that its a normal noise ... boo to Honda/Acura.

Sounds like you need to find a btter repair source. I have a 91 integra with 250,000 miles on it,still running strong.There's a "ring" at the brake assembly that actuates the ABS.May be bad or loose.When I buy a car,I buy a Haynes and Chilton repair book.Between the two of them I can usually get the job done or at least they point me in the right area.Good luck.
