10 Used Cars to Check Out Before Buying New

5. Acura RSX
Trim: Two-door sport coupe
Original MSRP: $21,330
KBB private party value: $5,580
Retained value: 26.2%
Acura's the only luxury marque to make KBB's list, and it took a car that hasn't existed in six years to put it there.

Once known as the Acura Integra, the RSX took its new moniker in 2002 as Acura tried to play the alphanumeric game with Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus. The RSX is a zippy little two-door that cranks an impressive 200 horsepower out of its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine but still clings to the comforts of its luxury line.

All RSX models came with automatic climate control, sport seats, a power moonroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a then-amazing in-glass radio antenna standard, with some getting a Bose stereo system as an upgrade.

It's not as powerful as a true performance car and not as plush as some of its luxury competitors, but the RSX gets a combined 26 miles per gallon and has reliability uncommon in most luxury brands. Picking up a loaded NSX for less than $6,000 will make buyers stand out, especially since the model hasn't been made since 2006. But it'll also make them pretty savvy.
