Thinking of buying RSX next month Any tips and advice please ???

Hey guys so im a bit new to the whole car enthusiast scene. I really do like the acura rsx, I have been searching on craigslist autotrader, etc. And mostly i do see is people selling their whip for 7k-9k. Most of them would be the 2002 model with 140k on a average on them. Is that a good deal ? What would be a average K that i should get for 7-9k. I dont want to get ripped off or anything, any suggestions. Any feedback would be great . THANKS !

Make sure you purchase one from a dealership on Kingsway, or King George Highway / Surrey....and you'll be fine.

I thought about going through the private sale route, but was afraid I might get fucked in the ass. So i ended up finding a 03 RSX-S @ a dealership (Lougheed Acura to be precise) and was super happy. Getting it from a dealership seems to be more solid because if you run into some problems in the beginning, you might still be able to go back to the dealership to get it resolved.

Please don't use the word "whip."

RSX can be had for less than 7-9k.
