Holding Up over 200k miles.

1991 Acura Integra GS 4dr Sedan
Bought at 178k from a friend, now has 218k miles. Stick. Car is fun to drive, handles and runs well, better then my 92 accord (LX-auto). Clutch took some getting used to. Don't care a ton for the anti-lock brakes in snow. Fairly reliable, but several age related repairs are now showing up (thermostat, rear calipers, alternator; main relay and fan control module starting to go; small oil leak at valve cover gasket; frameless windows seals starting to lose some elasticity). Typical 90s Honda rear wheel well rust. Trunk lid size and rear seats are small for this size of vehicle (my 84 escort was slightly better). Still, I would recommend and have enjoyed owning.
Decent power for mileage (30+ mpg in summer, 25 winter). Sporty manual transmission. Car handles well in fast paced city freeway driving, feels very stable at 80+ mph. Stylish body design, "bra" is a plus. Moonroof is great in spring and summer.
Clutch may take some getting used to. No cupholders. Trunk lid and rear seats are small for size of vehicle. Moonroof glass needs tinting. A/C marginal for black interior when hot. Engine noise-4k rpm on highway. Tight spacing under hood. Small gas tank.
