Default 2006 acura rsx?

Im thinking about getting an 06 acura rsx (automatic) for 17,999. I was just wondering what the pros and cons are with the rsx. is it worth the price? If anyone owns one or has driven one what do you think? Any comments will help. Thanksit has 23000 miles on it and is in good condition

Skip an 06 RSX as they have a poor repair record. 02 to 05 are great.

Acuras are excellent cars. The RSX is a nice, sporty coupe. The only complaint you may have is power. The standard engine with an automatic kind of struggles to pull the car. Even though it is a small car, it is pretty heavy.

i myself own an 06 rsx.. the vehicle is great. very little maintence is needed for the vehicle. simple oil changes rotations is pretty much all you need. the only problem with that car in an automatic is that the acceleration sucks. you get no power when you put your foot on the pedel. and i also noticed that when i used 93 gas it would pick up a little quicker. the good thing though is the vehicle is still under warranty so just about anything that happens will be taken car of by the dealership. they dont have many recalls like some of the other acura's. acura also has great extended warranty packages that mirror the manufactures warranty.

according to comsumer's reports the 2006 rsx is on the car list to avoid buying-other years are better. Get in MT if all possible-alot better than the automatic.

2002-2005 are the best yrs. (2006's tranny is a mess..) 2003-2006 std trannies have a 2nd gear problem, but once fixed, theres no further problem.

I haven't had any problems out of my RSX, my 3rd gear sometimes doesn't want to work, but when I first began driving, i really didn't know too much about driving a manual, so that could be the issue, but other than that, its great, power is good enough to handle Dallas traffic, plan on keeping it till the new 09 TL's come out this fall.
