get the RSX... Rotary engines are not as reliable as a piston engine. The acura will last you a lot longer and Rotary's can be a bitch to work onOk angel... If rotarys are so good... why do people always do LS1 swaps in rx-7's??? and the shop i work at and other shops turn down rotary's because they are bitches to work on

If u take care of ur rotary engine it will last just as long if not longer. With pistons engines u have more parts to worry about fixing with RE u just have to have the money to maintain it right, its not a cheap man car, i burns oil normally a lot and not that great on gas, but that all depends on how u drive. I would never get and rsx over and 8 they just don't compare at all, that's like a volks wagon to a supra!

rotory engines suck....they are good because they are small and compact..but they age way faster then a regular piston engine...the rsx is a honda so the realiability is there and the rsx has one of the only motor in the world to be a 4 banger and n/a at that to produce 200+ hp stock...the rsx will have its normal cost of repairs...but the rotory will always require a whole new engine when something is wrong or will need a major rebuild....friends own rx7's...one swaped it with a 350 small block...one put in a sr20det....one has 20b 3rotor engine (rich biatch) but has 3 other motors on the side just in case...one guys car is always sitting in the drive way because it over heats too much and cant solve the problem...one is still scratching his head because his engine gave out at around 97,000 miles and he only had it for a year and has no money to rebuild it becuase he's still making payments...so i would rather chose the rsx...no issues with the honda 4 bangers...
