to AW... If you don't drive it like you stole it every time you get in it, and by that I mean redlining it at every gear shift like they do in a race, then it should last 200,000-250,000 miles easy. That's providing you maintain it well.

I'll always go with the Manual. Type-S has a 6 speed / Non Type-S has a 5 speed. Reliability vs Performance & Fun: I go with Manual. If it's your DD - just don't wail on it too much and you'll be good to go!

Good luck!

Which means they start to fall apart @ 70,000 miles.

Ya true but a built short blocks only 2800. But either you like them or hate them. I really dont need 1 I know they look like crap, i see a lady bug when i look at them for some reason.

So either tranny A or M will last for ever pretty much in the RSX i doubt i will find a type s, so ill have to settle for a RSX but im getting leather in it for sure.
