i got this car right before i had my baby girl...thought a good gas-mileage hatchback was a smart buy to help with saving money while getting around...i read a post about the head- gasket...well...same here...the baby's rear-facing infant seat barely fits in the back...no cupholders...now im looking to sell the car and get a different one...:(
i like the body style and color...the sunroof is a nice option...nice sized trunk...decent gas mileage
I bought my Integra in '96 with 40,000 miles on it and have added 120,000 to it since. Outstanding car, always reliable. Looks great, drives great. I only had to have it towed once, and that was because of a mistake the repair shop made that morning (an a/c belt was installed improperly). It hasn't been without it's problems, but nothing unusual for the age of the car. I can jump in it and take a road trip without thinking twice. I'd buy another one in a minute.
Styling (still looks great), handling, visibility (no blind spots!), and of course reliability. Seats are comfy but not luxurious (it's a small car). For normal street driving I use Michelins, and the last set lasted 60,000 miles, in AZ no less! In no small part due to the Integra suspension.
Like others have said, cupholders. The two dimples on the lowered glove box lid just don't cut it. So I usually wedge my water bottle between the seat and e-brake, and it works fine. Could use a tad more HP in the non-VTEC model. Otherwise, the car is golden.
I own a 1993 Acura Integra LS coupe.
The car is fun to drive and there are a
lot of aftermarket parts for them. I
got mine right before I graduated from
high school, and now I use it to go to
college and it is the very realiable
with no serious problems. The only
complent I have is a leaky gasket which
I heard is a very common problem with
integras. I have upgraded to many
engine mods and the car just keeps
getting better. I don't think I'll ever
sell it. Why buy a new car, when this
one is so great and it has plenty of
life left after all its a HONDA!!
My 1993 Integra has provided me with
178,562 miles of pure driving
excitement, and still going strong!
Comfortable seating & peppy
performance. I modified mine with
Intake, Headers, and Freeflow exhaust.
The Integra loves to breathe, and
outperforms most new civics and the 4th
generation Integras. The 93 body style
was the best look ever, this car is
long and mean with wraparound
headlights. Plenty of space for both
Mountain bikes in the hatchback. I
bought a new Acura CL-S, but I still
kept my Integra, I just cannot see
parting with it. Still drive it every
weekend to keep it from getting too
Exterior looks Superior. Power and
performance when modified with K&N.
This car just keeps on runnin, nearly
200k and still running smooth! Hugs
the corners and looks great still.
Clutch gave out in 1996 coming up a
grade, pulled off the freeway and into
the Acura dealer, they replaced the
clutch and tranny, no questions asked
under warranty! Some rattles and I do
need new shocks, not bad for 10 years.
