Mitsubishi Evo vs Acura RSX

Right now, I am deciding if I should keep my RSX Type S for a year or two or I should trade in my new RSX for the used EVO IX.

2006 Acura RSX Type S - 14K miles - brought new for one year for $25K - trade-in $18K
2006 EVO IX - 13K miles - $27K

I am not sure what to do now. I can afford the EVO IX, but I would not have much money left each month. So finanically, I am ok.

I want to keep the EVO for a year or two, and then trade in for another car.

Basically, I like to drive many different cars like Mazda RX-8, Mazadaspeed 3, Nissan 350Z, Civic Si, Honda Fit, VV GTI, STi, etc. However, I still like my RSX.

If EVO X actually release, would the price of EVO IX drop much lower? Should I wait or get the EVO IX now? Or should I just keep my RSX for 2 more years since I only have the RSX for one year?

    Wait for the Evo X and buy yourself one. You can't go wrong with that.

    Or he could actually wait for the 09 Lancer Ralliart, to be launched after the Evo X

    I recently purchased a new '06 evo ix mr edition..And I have no regrets on getting the car. However, I wouldn't trade your rsx for the evo. The evo is the better car for sure, but getting a used car may not be the way to go. You don't know the car from the beginning. You know your rsx, and it's not a bad car at all. There is no doubt that you will feel more confident and safe in staying with your original car because it has been with you since the beginning. Trading for the used car is a risk, maybe not a big risk, but it still is a risk. i would stick with your rsx for a while longer. if you want a car, always buy it new and you will always know your car from day one.
  • r.s.x. for a evo? heck yeah, dont matter if it is 8,9 or x. c'mon dude, i, know you want that "evo's" raw power.(unless your r.s.x. is super charged)

    if you are near an Autozone apparently they'll read your codes(that are triggering your check engine light) for you for free. You could do that and then see what's wrong. Or not wrong.

    yep, that's one of the things I have learned here in Edmunds. Many members have given other members that very same advice. Hope it can work for you, rav4killa.
