rsx is a great car. have it fully checked out. this car has a timing chain not a belt, so it doesn't have to be changed

thats a great deal!! the trans problems arent so bad that they should keep you from buyin it. And no 115k is nothin for a honda. i bought my 02 type-s with 113k miles for 11k and i just broke 120k miles and its still runnin flawlessly. And it's a timing chain, not a belt so it shouldn't be a problem either.
