I would say no more than 20,000 miles per year on average.Anymore than that and I would be expecting a discounted price for a high mileage car.

I have a 2002 and just bought it recently. It had 37,000 when i bought it. but dont be scared if it has more then usual miles. Its a 4cyl Honda engine. They are pretty durable and last for amny miles as long as it was maintain properly.

Well if you lease a car from a dealer you can only put 10,000-15,000 a year on the car. So that's usually a good number to go by. So if it's an 02 then i'd wouldn't buy one more than 60-65k and an 04, I wouldn't buy one with more than, 30-35k. Acura/Honda have very reliable cars. My honda has over 120k and still pulling strong! Good luck on your search!

Acura RSX are great. They are 4cl honda engine sov they pretty much last forever. The DMV says avg. is 15,000mi per year. But usually people tedn to drive 10,000 or maybe 40,000 or somethingAn RSX is just a 4th gen integra, so it would last you about 200-250k in miles before it breaks. But it can last almost forever if you take care of it.

All depends on who put the miles on, and how they maintajned the car., Have checks run on the engine, chassis, to see what kind of shape its really in, usually there is some reason why the car is on the lot.. A few thousand miles can be too many if they were done wrong.

I put over 60000 miles on my old 2002 RSX Type S. Still very solid and no issues. I would say anything over 80,000 miles, not due to reliability, just your costs go up in maintiance replacing tires and brakes or the errand water pump, maybe...

i put about 12,500 miles a year on my TL commuting 24 miles to work each day. So I would say maybe no more than 70,000 for a 2002.however, with proper maintenance and care, any acura should last you until 200,000 miles. It won't be under warranty anymore, but keep up on oil changes, brakes, tires and you are good!
