Default Acura RSX Repair Costs?

I am thinking about buying an Acura RSX. Compared to other cars, what are the repair costs like? I am not sure if I have enough money for upkeep of this car so I need to know repair costs. I already know that it gets great gas mileage, so that's definitely a plus. Also, Do you guys think this is a good car? Lastly, how often will it need repairs? Does it have good reliability?

According to consumer reports, the 06 rsx is the year to avoid. The other years, if properly maintained and not driven like race cars, they are ok.

I have a 2002 RSX-S bought new in 2001. It will be 12 in's had front brakes (last year) replaced, 4 sets of tires( 1st set didn't count, they lost tread on the freeway and were replaced with no warranty..I didn't wanna fight OE tires are not always the best) I just had it's drive belt replaced and maint on it to the tune of $800. The stereo died a couple of yrs ago, replaced. Other than that, it's oil/gas...

I don't know the gas mileage cause it's a stick not an auto and I drive fast. ( cause I am old and like to)

I've had Honda's/ Acura's for 33 yrs now and they've been the best cars I've ever driven.

A car will last a long time, as long as it's taken care of and maintained. (with good parts, not aftermarket)

If you don't drive the hell out of the engine and tranny, then you will save yourself a LOT of trouble.

Cars are not toys to destroy.

The RSX will run you on insurance's a 'sports car'.
