i started likin them more and more. but still not as good as teh celica. if you were to trade in ur car, get something better.
if si is better for u, then go for it.

to me they closely resemble a ford focus, which i think is ugly. if only honda didn't give it some fat, it would of been a nice fast car IMO

fast... isn't really what i'm going for...

I want something reliable, sporty, and just nice

Oh yeah, and i don't want to have to deal with the toyota dealership in my town, or have to drive out of town (at least 100 miles) to find a better toyota dealer

if you want something nice and reliable thatll be the best bang for the buck is honda civic 2dr. they are nice, affordable, nothing fast, good looking, a little sporty, and real reliable.
tell you wut about rsx. comparing with the celica, rsx is a luxury car, or at least feels like one. the seats are high, the dash is high, the seating style is like an suv comparing with a celicas. i wouldnt get an rsx cz celica is pretty similar in performance and in overall class (sporty cars against each other). i would say go for scion tc, i really like them. it looks way nicer than the rsx and it feels like rsx if you really dont care about much performance.

I'd consider a Civic more if the Si were still made in coupe. I hate the new hatch. Restatement: I hate all hatches.

Celicas are low, mean, practicly have no back seat, can corner like its goin out of style, and are rare, and thats what I love about them. Grandma's get civics, girls get civics, its just a plain generic car designed for the masses -celicas are different and superior, something you don't see every everytime you turn your head.. (just my opinion)

no acura dealership?? I live in saskatchewan, its bigger then texus and has less then a million people - we have 2 acura dealerships - what gives?

i wouldn't do mini cooper, check consumer report on their reliability. RSX-S is a good bet with tons of aftermarket support... thumbsup

ok... here's te deal, celica is going to have a new engine and tranny... i'm thinking i want to cut my losses now, before i have any other expensive repairs

rsx-s is a no go... there aren't any acura dealers within 200 miles of me... same goes for the mini. Hell, the closest nissan dealer is 130 miles away.

I have the choice of another toyota (and a dealer that purposefully breaks things) or a honda, and a good dealership, or something used or american

you can do like a friend of mine. he wanted the aftermarket support of a civic and the sport and power of an si, but in a coupe. so what did he do? went to canada and bought a 2-door SiR

it doesn't matter... the guy at the honda dealership tried to rip me off... so the deal's off... i think i'm just going to keep the GT with the new engine and tranny, and use the money i save to turbo the damn thing (and set up a fund to replace then egine when it does this again)

Ragingpaseo brings up a good point. Try out a Toyota Corolla XRS for size. Fix it up and it'd be a total sleeper.

You know, I had to drive my buddy's EX back when he was drunk as fuck at a party. He has only I/E/H and the thing has some pull. VTEC hits smoother and more noticeably than VVTL-I. It's also easier to shift and stay within the bounds of VTEC
