Hello I want all of your opinions please as I am new and know little about Acuras I am looking at purchasing this car

http://www.lutherauto.com/Preowned-Inventory.aspx?InventoryId=20405817

The dealer said they will sell it for 10,600 is that a good deal I dont know prices for these.
The car has hail damage and is mainly concentrated on the roof and hood. You can view the carfax on the same link too. I really liked the car and I have been looking at Celicas for a long time now but I thought I should look at something else too thank you all.

I dont really plan to mod it much maybe a CF hood to eliminate that hail damage. I really just want to know if thats a fair price or if its too much.

The highest I'd pay for it is 10k but I doubt I'd even buy a hail damaged vehicle. My brother's old Civic got damaged by quarter-sized hail and it cost 4,500.

If you do plan on buying it, just tell the guy it's gonna cost a few thousand to fix the hail damage and see if he budges, if not, try to find another RSX.

Not bad for the mileage but for that amount you can get a type s for like 5 grand more with around the same mileage. Take my word for it i bought a fpr base auto for 9 even with 136000 miles i wanted to go lower but i brought them down from 125000. Paid it full out the door never looked back. But i regret i coulda got the gsr they had in the back for like 6-7gs but i still have a civic ex that needs a motor build and alot of tlc.

Some one traded it in with the hail damage I know its spendy to fix it. Maybe I will try and see if I can get something at the Minneapolis Auto Auction here.

Lol I dont want a Type S thats why I am looking at that base one. If I had a bunch of money to blow on insurance costs and gas and mods what have you I think I would look at a Type S. People on these forums make me laugh. Dont buy that car get a Type S, dont get the Celica GT get the GTS, dont buy a C6 get a Z06. Sorry I am just getting frustrated I have been looking to get a car for a long time.

the base is a great, solid car. its great for city driving and it will always put a smile on your face. however, that particular one is a little overpriced for an 02 with 61k miles.

i paid 14000 for my base with leather with 62000 i over paid but the car was so clean inside n out no body dam no oil leaks really taken care of but if i would have re-serched the diff in the k20a2 n k20a3 i would have looked harder for the type-s.... btw at the time i was looking i couldnt find a type-s that haddent been modifiyed or wreaked so i bought a base 5spd after tryin to find a type-s for like 60days

personally i dont think you should buy an rsx from a dealership. search this forum theres plenty of cars for sale from club members, you will get a much better deal and the cars will be in better condition.
