I'll give my 2 cents...

I see that you're interested in coupes/hatchbacks. My strong recommendation is to look for a 2007 2-door (7th generation) Accord. It's has essentially the same engine as the RSX but with improved safety features (the Accord has side curtain airbags and the RSX never did). Additionally, this Accord generation has fantastic factory LED tail lights. I'd stay away from the 8th generation Accords due to cost-cutting of interior materials and lackluster overall design.

As an aside, the 7th generation Accords have significant resale value (especially after the MMC - 2006+) and it may be difficult to find a "gently used" 2007.
