Default What do you think about a 2002 white acura rsx in mint condition? Is it a good car?

Do you thinks this car has curve appeal? Is this a good car or great car? Do you think it's kinda sporty?

Pssst--the expression for a sporty car is "CURB appeal"; it's YOUR job to provide the "curve appeal," right. A very nice car, BUT: The engine is pure Honda. Find out when the timing belt was last done. The manual calls for every 60,000 miles, but at that age 55,000 is a better bet. Break a timing belt on this sucker and you will have turned a $3500 engine into a high-tech doorstop. They are also like Volvos and Mercedes in that they are VERY expensive to repair, and idiot stuff like a broken rear window can send you to the poorhouse. The rule is simple: if you can't afford to repair it, you can't afford to buy it. Regardless of your fantasies, you probably DON'T have a super model's income, so don't be blinded by a super model's car. Remember, nobody ever traded in a used car because they were delighted with it.

White is an ugly color for an RSX.

odzookers is wrong...the T-belt doesn't need to be changed until after 100k.

Rob Lee... your drunk... white (premium white pearl, the color of my type-s) is dead freakin sexy!! Yes, it's got "curve appeal" lol, and by the way, it has a timing chain, not a belt, so it just needs to be tensioned if anything, but mine's going on 126k miles and still hasn't had to be adjusted at all.

You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here - carinsurance.deep-ice.com
