This car cost very little to maintain, oil changes every 4000 miles (no oil added between changes) brakes twice on front, just changed rear at 112000 and they could of went another 20000 miles. Changed timming belt and water pump at 115000, belt had NO wear at all, changed the water pump just because it was exposed with the belt change. Used Honda parts (want to run another 115000 miles) 1st. set of tires went 75000 miles, bought Continental tires for second set and they still have a lot of tread left.
This is my second Acura Integra & I love it! It's fun to drive, looks great and has tons of cargo space! Like my other Integra, this one is extremely reliable. Although it has 128,000 miles, I'm sure it will last for another 128K. Too bad Acura decided to discontinue the model.
This is an excellent quality made Japanese vehicle. Three set ownership car 1) Feed with 93 grade gas 1) 2) Lubricate with oil ever 3,000 3)Check/Replace timinig belt ever 80,000. Bulletproof engine, stunning handling, luxurious build quality, super reliable. Bought mine with 165,000, have driven it to 190,000 with no problems. Even took it to the track once and ran a 15.5 1/4 mile with only the addition of OEM intake and Magnaflow exhaust. Keep in mind that a new one back in 95' ran a 15.3, 190,000 haven't done much to hurt performance! Always starts on first crank, never ever ever gives any problems. Was designed for hard driving.
V-TEC engine, 170 stock HP. Easily tuned to 200 for under $1000. No wonder 4 Integra model years hold the top ten stolen list of cars. These engines were hand assembled by skilled Japanese technicians. Silky smooth transmission, you will be hard pressed to miss a shift. Only better is the b18c5.
Engine dead below 3,000 RPM. Gearing of transmission causes high RPM's at highway speeds, yet very stable at even 100. Cupholders designed for small Japanese appetites, not American gluttons. A/C kills performance due to Hondas drive belt system design.
I put a turbo on mine so it was slightly modified. However, in stock form it was still a very fun car to drive! Reliability is top notch. Styling is fantastic inside and out. 122,000 miles and still tight as new! If you want an import to modify this is THE ONLY choice. GSR makes more power but the LS is great!
The reliability is amazing. I beat mine relentlessly and it just took it and asked for more. This is so much more car than a civic.
More interior room but they fixed that with the RSX.
I love my GS-R. These cars are so fun
to drive and reliable. You don't have
to worry about anything as long as you
do regular matenince. For the price you
can't find anything better, with the
DOHC V-tec engine it makes trips to the
store exciting! I would recommend this
car to anyone who has the desire to
have a sports car at a reasonable
My favorite thing about the car is the
engine. 170 H.P. from a small car like
this really gets it moving.
