You are in the Acura RSX
What is this discussion about?
Acura RSX, Coupe, Hatchback

You should be cross-shopping the RSX and the Celica, not the RSX and the 2003 Corolla, Elliott.
Acura warranty is one year longer and it's a bit more upscale of a name than Toyota or Honda. If I should do so, my 2001 Integra should last until the end of this decade. You want something that will last and not cause any headaches in the long run. That's the point of having a car... driving it, not trying to fix it (now, if you have a computer, getting Windoze to work thesedays, that's different)!

Ok, well by the end of this decade I probably won't even want a little sports coupe. That is why now I am thinking about getting the new Accord if it is not too expensive. It will be much more useful to me because it is bigger. It still is sporty too. I also will look into the Altima. There is no more comparison between RSX and Celica because I have decided that if I get a coupe the RSX is the one for me. I like the 350Z the best but it is out of my price range unfortulatly. I think a sedan will best suit me if I will be keeping it a while. I do have a sister that is 2 years younger than me and I might be able to talk her into taking an RSX or something when she can drive so then I can get a sedan but I don't want a little car for a long time. I think the Matrix might be a good choice for me and I am going to start looking into it. Actually, I might just wait even longer than three years so I can get a Lexus that I would be happy to keep for as long as possible. I know that I have bored you to death by now so I will stop. Just give me your feedback on those ideas.

Looks to have a really nice interior (ES), will be fairly quick, even with the 4-cylinder, will be extremely quite, and will have a nice ride. Maybe that car, or the sedan (2003) is the car to wait for. Expect the ES 4-cylinder to be around $20K, but should have most of the luxury you wanted in a Lexus with better seats.

That is why the 2002 Lexus ES300 as of right now is my favorite car ever made. I hope I can get one. If not, I will just get the '03 Accord.

That message above here, I thought you were talking about the Lexus ES300, not the Honda Accord EX!

The new Accord will have tailbone-finding seats. Expect these seats to be very comfortable. I am not sure if you have seen pictures of the New Accord's interior (EX), but it is very nicely done and very luxurious!
#1431 of 2585 Hi Folks- Back to the topic.

Interesting discussion here, but I gotta ask that we please focus more on the topic of this discussion. Okay? If you'd like to continue discussing vehicles other than the RSX, feel free to start up a new discussion on this board. "RSX vs. other cars" or "Hatchback vs. Sedan" would be interesting new topics for this board.
Toyotaboyes- You may also get some helpful feedback in our Which Hatchback? and/or Best Hot Hatch discussions. Good luck with your decision.
And now, back to the subject of the Acura RSX! Thanks for your participation.

Hi Revka, thanks! And sorry for getting off the subject of the RSX.
I have seen the inside and outside of the new Accord and it is a beautiful car. The inside kind of resembles the ES300.
Sorry for getting off topic again, I will shut up now!

#1434 of 2585 Help the Acura Newbie

I just bought my RSX 2 weeks ago. I love it. I have to cargo net bought seperatly and I can't figure out how to hook the bottom portion of the net to the hatchback. It came for extra hooks and screws but as you can see I'm not mechanicaly inclined. The net swings back and forth and drives me nuts. Is there anyway to secure to bottom of the net. HELP THE NEWBIE!!!
