Default Anyone own a Acura RSX?

Anyone have a RSX? I understand it is Honda's luxury brand. I have wanted one for a long time. Curious what problems anyone has had with them?? Are there any kind of leaks that are common that I should worry about?Are they as expensive as a BMW to repair?Is this a reliable car or will I begin to have majors/expensive fix problems as the miles roll up? Looking for something reliable and fairly inexpensive for repair costs. Was also considering a Celica GT. Very interested in the Civic. I have yet to test drive one but the look is a little bland. Would I be disappointed? Oh, this might help, I currently drive a 98 Mustang which likes gas. Thanks.

Hey, I own a 2006 Acura RSX Type S and I love this car. Honda and Acura are one of the top most reliable cars out there. It's a sexy looking car and very quick. No major problems with this car at all that I know of. I am on a RSX forum which will explain a lot more. You can't go wrong with this car, trust me. Check out the site I have provided below, it will make you fall in love with the rsx. If not, the Civic SI is another good choice.

The RSX is the luxury version of the Honda Civic Coupe.Honda and Acura are the most reliable cars in the world. No one can beat them. They do not get any problems.They are not as expensive as BMW to repair. Only German cars are expensive to fix.This car can last way over 200,000 miles.The Acura RSX Type S is better because it has a 210HP 4 cylinder Vtec engine. It is just as fast as a VW GTI.Remember that this is a compact sportscar so it will not be as quiet, smooth, or luxurious as other Acura's.

I own a 03 RSX base with a 5 speed and leather interior. It has never given me an ounce of trouble. You can go to http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/ where you can research service bulletins, recalls and complaints for the RSX

I have a 2002 Base RSX. I love it. Has 53,000 miles and not a problem with it other than general maintenance (brakes, tires, etc. I HIGHLY recommend them. Acuras are very reliable. My wife complains that they are uncomfortable to ride in but it's not that bad as far as comfort. I also have a 1990 Integra 149,000 miles. This car has never broken down on me.
