SmokingTire - 1991 Acura NSX

Still have a strong love for these. The Smoking Tire posted a new review on a 1991 Acura NSX. I always enjoy watching Matt Farah reviewing such a variety of vehicles. Check it out

These will pick up interest as well once the new NSX is out in good numbers since price will go down which can help some people justify the cost and go forward with aftermarket modifications which there are many that can turn the NSX into an entire different beast.

Most definitely. But the price as they are now ranges from what 45k-60k ? I can't imagine them getting much cheaper to be real.

I think the prices now are perfectly fair. For what it is, you really cannot go wrong

Even at that price range mentioned these are well worth having since you'll most likely just have to pay for regular maintenance, nothing anywhere near the cost of ownership of owning an italian, british or german vehicle which can be cheaper to buy but costly to own.

Although at times you do have to do the random major job:

The clutch job is definitely quite expensive. But considering nothing has really gone horribly wrong in 2 years, that's quite amazing. But as far as oil changes and brakes, it's really not that bad at all.

If you're spending in the range of 80-90k for a mint condition one, spending 3-5k a year shouldn't be an issue for maintenance. That being said, it's not like there's really much to do on them, especially if you buy that's been taken care of properly

Just have to look at the maintenance record and if it needs jobs like that to be done, you might be able to negotiate it in the purchase, depending on how easy/hard it is for a dealer to move one of these, doing a job like that just to get a car sold can be reasonable.

Definitely true. I would presume people that own these vehicles would definitely keep a service history on them. From a quick look you can see what they have and haven't done and go from there. Even if you can settle on having the dealer pay a portion of the costs, you still can't really go wrong with that
