1994 Acura Integra GS-R 2dr Hatchback


Review

bought this car with 66K miles on it; it was owned by a family member who took care of it. I have taken care of it and have driven it hard many many time; i have strapped kayaks on top (three); and have trailered as many as 10...people laugh at me when i show up with this car laden with boats...but it has stood-up. This sets the bar for reliability for all other cars. With 147K miles on it, i have bought another car for replacement...but think i will hang on to it yet for the sheer fun of driving it. They just dont make them like this anymore


Best Features

VTEC; pulls an honest 8500 RPM...even with high milage.


Worst Features

make something as good as this

Review

I purchased this car for $2000 dollars here in southern california and what a steal it was. I love this car, it's powerful, fun, great ride, I feel like i'm 18 again. This is by far one of the best two cars i've ever had (my other car being a 94 honda civic ex). The v-tec is amazing and very responsive even after the 170k miles it has on it.


Best Features

Responsiveness... it so quick off the line. I actually got a ticket for passing up a cop! I was having too much fun. lol.


Worst Features

leave this old bucket the way it is, fun and fun!

Review

Absolutely wonderful car! I got mine with 112k miles on it and it feels like it's just gotten broken in. It's a blast to drive with the 5 spd and the 8k rpm redline. The only complaints would be the cupholders and the radio antenna. The gears got stripped or something and it makes a grinding kind of noise. The Integra is an amazing car and if you can find one unmolested like I did, you'll be in for many years of pure driving pleasure!


Best Features

5 spd and 8k rpm redline, body styling, availability of parts (OEM and aftermarket).


Worst Features

Bigger and better placed cupholders, moonroof controls that are up by the moonroof would have been nice.

Review

I now have over 360k miles on my 94 GS-R and this thing still flies! Never have had any engine work done on it, only typical repairs including brakes, tires, belts, and hoses. Did replace the radiator once, but, it was a simple job costing less than $90. I change the oil about once every 12k miles and it still has no issues. What a car. Fast, fuel efficient, and a blast to drive. I upsized the tires to 205/55r-15 and it makes a positive difference. There is something special about the 94 GS-R engine (many call it the one year wonder engine). Not sure what it is, but, it definitely has more hp than subsequent years (even though the specs don't support it). Get one if you can!!


Best Features

Fabulous engine, great handling, MPG, love the engine sound, utility of the hatchback, 5-spd trans (6-spd trans are a nuisance).


Worst Features

Bring it back, Acura! The RSX is nice, but it's not a GS-R.

Review

I've had this car now for 12 years and 420,000 miles later and can safely say it's been a rock. Other than routine maintenance and replacing a clutch one time (@ 270,000 mi), it just keeps running and the performance is the same as the day I got it. I one upped the tire size to 205/55r-15s (looks and rides better and you get far better tread-life (I get an avg of 60k miles on ea set).


Best Features

Utility of the hatch, 30+ mpg, performance, handling, low cost of maintenance.


Worst Features

Placement of oil filter on the Honda/Acura 4 cyl. engines makes it somewhat of a pain to change the oil (but, doable).
