     In May of 2002, I decided that it was time to get a new car.  I had marked my one year anniversary at my current job, and I was making pretty good money.  I wanted a 3 door sports coupe that had all of the luxury amenties that one expects such as a power moonroof, leather seats, automatic climate control, power everything, and aluminum alloy wheels.  I got all of that and more in my 2002 Acura RSX.  Furthermore, I wanted to spend right around $26,000 out the door for my first new car.  However, I spent a little more than $26,000 with the extended warranty and enhancements, but it was worth it.  This is an awesome car.  I chose the Desert Silver color with Titanium interior.

    One of the nice things about Acura is the service you get from the dealer.  Since it is a luxury brand, you get TLC (Total Luxury Care) for the first four years.  That includes roadside assistance, trip planning, and concierage benefits.  Moreover, when you bring the car in for service, you get a complimentary loaner.  Moreover, you get a standard 4 year/50,000 mile warranty instead of the usual 3 year/36,000 mile warranty you get with non-luxury cars.  The dealerships also feature nice customer waiting lounges with complimentary snacks, beverages, Direct TV, and leather chairs as well as complimentary computer terminals.  It spoils you.  I went with a former co worker to a Chevy or Oldsmobile dealership for his service once, and I was shocked at the crappy waiting lounge and lack of beverages and snacks.  He was not even offered a loaner car.

    The Acura was my baby since it was my first new car.  I had it detailed so often.  Moreover, I only had the Klasse German wax applied to it since it made the paint look great for 6-12 months.  For the leather, I made sure that only Lexol products touched it.
