I traded the first new car I'd ever bought (a Chevy) about 18 months after purchasing it for this car in 1996, hoping it would last about four years until my new business was off the ground and I could afford "something better."
It had 34,000 miles on it then.
It's 2011, I own 18 cars, and still drive this one plenty.
It's only let me down once (coil gave out), and still gets 35 mpg on the road when I can get gas with no ethanol in it.
I've used synthetic oil and done my own oil changes (Castrol at first, now Amsoil), and the original engine now stands at 402,000 miles, and has never been worked on.
And I drive it HARD.
Seats could be more comfortable; air conditioning seems to break every 2-3 years.
I bought my car new. I've had no real problems w/my car. It's great to ride around in w/my three kids. It has great gas milage. I believe it had the nicest body style of all the integras. I am going to have it fixed even though its a older car, its worth it. Milage is only 142000 and running great with front damage. If I had a chance to buy another 1993 I will buy it immediatly.
Body style and interior bucket seats are comfortable to drive long distance.
I recommend abs brakes due to when I braked to avoid a car pulling out in front. I hit the brakes and it locked up.
This is the perfect first car. It is
as reliable as they come and it is
really fun to drive. The car is not
perfect but for the price range there
are no other cars that can compare. If
you have around 3 grand to spend
definitely buy this car.
Handling like a go-cart. Awesome
reliabilty. Great feeling 5-speed.
The car rattles a bit because the
suspension is so stiff.
I bought my 93 RS Coupe new in 1993 and
still own it today. I have never had a
major problem with this car. I drive
it everyday to commute to work. At
197000 miles I had to finally replace
the original clutch, and rear brakes.
Only routine maint. over the years (oil
change, tires, timing belt..etc)
Great car, and very reliable.
Good handling and nice looks. Also
great fuel economy.
