Today I got a courtesy car from Lougheed Acura. I was expecting an EL but instead I got an RSX! I know our babies surpass RSX in every category but somehow I feel so excited when I was driving it...is there something wrong with me? :police:

no basically the RSX was like a last resort since they have lots of ELs as loaners...maybe it's because the feelings are different when you drive a 2 door coupe...

eg when I was driving my TSX I feel like in the James Bond movie but in the RSX I felt like in Fast and Furious movie :lol:

all in all it's good to have my car back again

When I had to leave my TSX with them, I asked for an RSX as a loaner, but they didn't have any, so I had to "settle" for a TSX. :D

I wanted to try the RSX because it's something different, and it's "raw" compared to the TSX, which would be great for a couple of days.


P.S. The analogies to other areas of life are too obvious to say. :laugh:

Did you get the magnesium metallic rsx? apparently it's the service managers car that he uses... they gave me that car for about 5 days until my tsx arrived(was late about 3 weeks). it only had 125km's on it... I don't think I helped the break in process on that car :p

no, I go to a different dealer. All their cars are base RSX with automatics. Handling is good but the car is annoying. I think the 2005 is a bit more refined.

I got an Acura loaner once (Fall 2003), it was a beat up '03 TL base automatic (the 2nd gen). Man that thing was terrible it rattles, squeaks, a radio that even doesn't work, accelerate and the engine knocks really hard, brakes squeal, to steering wheel vibrations. It felt like that car was falling apart and it had only 31k miles. Other than that, the local dealer has RSXs and TSXs as loaners now, though they are phasing out the RSXs and placing the TSX in there place. I noticed the RSX bases they have are 03-04 models.
