Default Newer acura or New accord?

2005 Acura RL OR2008 Honda Accordi have a 1986 acura integra with 121000 miles right now, and if it breaks down within the next year i get a 2005ish RL, and if it doesnt break down i get a 2008 Accord.so should i beat the shit out of my car or just wait???and just to let you guys know, they are both the same company

Well, I do LOVE the Acura RL but you'll get much better features with the newer Accord. Plus, it is a great car as well. Go for the Honda! I have the Civic now and love it to death...I know they're the same company but you'd be better off with the newer car. You'd get more features like iPod connector, etc.

Either one would be a sweet car, but personally I would go for the acura. Both cars are a sure bet for reliability. As far as features go, I dont know that either one would have more than the other, but my guess is the Acura is more luxurious even than it's newer counterpart. Plus if the RL has the super handling all wheel drive, it will be a better performing car all around. My mom's MDX handles better than my dad's Saab convertible because of the SH-AWD. But I dont know what your worried about anyway. 121000 miles is nothing for an acura. I sold my Vigor with 278000 only having replaced an alternator. My Legend has 174000 and still smokes most everything.

that is totally up to you. If the integra is not costing alot in maintenance cost I personally would keep it and see how many more miles I can get on it. 121,000 miles is not that much on a 86. I own a 06 tsx, bought new 11/17/06. It now has 58,000+problem free miles. I love MT which the rl and accord sedan does not have.

Right now, I would probably ride my car out until I just cant it anymore cost or style wise... it is kinda a bad time to be buying a car or making any large unnecessary purchases. Plus, your intergra with 121k miles is really not alot ( had a 94 civic ex that had 180k+ when I let it go ran perfectly the day i sold it ...!!! ) If you just gotta get a newer car... I would probably go withe the accord... nice style, dependable, and they just refreshed the look - that 2005 RL ( although I like the style of it alot !!! ) is a bit stale now... either way both of them are great cars...
