1990 Acura Integra Sedan LS 4dr Sedan


Review

It's had fewer problems than other cars we've owned. I've done most of the work on it myself. One major problem was that it wouldn't start when hot. After checking on the Internet for a while, I fixed it at no cost by re-soldering a cracked solder joint in the main relay. Another problem was that one couldn't immediately remove the ignition key after starting the car. Again, the Internet came to the rescue and I had to clean the transmission lever electrical contacts (a lot of screws to remove to get to it). The ignition switch failed but got fixed by cleaning and lubing the contacts. A lot of work getting to it. Other problems were mostly like this, little cost but some work needed.


Favorite Features

Back seats fold forward resulting in a long "luggage compartment".


Suggested Improvements

CV joint boots seem to break too often. Too difficult to gain access to switch contacts that get dirty. Hubcaps too easy to break against curbs. Service manual is too vague at explaining what the computer does and reports via flash codes. Most all problems I've had didn't get detected by it.

Review

I bought this car new and have used it mostly for city commuting. Mileage is going down slightly with age but can still turn a consistent 23 in city and 32 on the road. Car is fun to drive and easy to maintain for most things, but timing belt, water pump, ac compressor, CV joints are a pain. This car's reliability and the service lead me toward a 2004 TL.


Favorite Features

The handling, the clear visibility, the reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Oil leaks have been a problem but not cost effective to fix. Radio could be better.

Review

Purchased my car with 150k on it. Had to get a 2nd car because of these high gas prices and having a SUV will break your pockets. Car is very fun to drive. Car is very easy to fix and parts are cheap and readily available. Don't have to go to the dealer for everything( my previous car was a 95 BMW 740i). Anyone with a basic knowledge of auto mechanics can keep this car running and tuned up. Driver seat was a little worn when i brought it but it seems like all of them are like that with this many miles on them. Seat cover fixed that problem. Paint still has a little luster to it. Very good 2nd car or car for a student.


Favorite Features

Easy to fix, parts cheap, fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

If it had a little more horse power it would be perfect. ( A couple of modifications should help that out)

Review

I had the '90 GS Sedan and never let me down. The car handled and cornered like it was on rails (I did upgrade the wheels to 16's and had low-pro tires). The engine is adequate for city driving, but needs to be revved past 5500 rpms to get any kind of power (0- 60 is about 8.5 seconds). SO A 5-SPD IS A MUST! Do not get an AUTO! The cabin is very nicely done and isn't too fancy or dated looking. I recommend the '90- '93 Integra if you want a car with good looks, good driving characteristics and good reliability.


Favorite Features

Easy to maneauver and handle. Fuel economy is good, 27-31 avg. The GS is nicer, so go for that one if your wallet allows you to. Reliability is the same as all other Hondas-almost perfect.


Suggested Improvements

It helps to fix and maintain the car yourself (dealers/mechanics overcharge you just because it has that "A" logo on the hood. The '90 GS Sedan (not sure about the '91-'93s) did not come with a sunroof....bummer, dude. No airbags until the redesigned '94, either.
