ReviewI have owned this car for nearly 4 years and still love to bang against the 8000 RPM redline while merging on the freeway. You have to drive it like you're angry to get any serious acceleration, but if you keep the tach above 5k it will really move. Drop to 3k and you're dead in the water. The fit & finish is superb as would be expected from Honda. I have had no real mechanical issues with the car and it still uses very little oil between changes even at nearly 110k miles. I did change the timing belt at 70k and brake rotors at about 80k, but based on seeing GM rotors go at 30k...that's not bad.
Best FeaturesVery easy audio install...speakers in the right places and perfect fit in the dash. Almost as perfect as my CRX.
Worst FeaturesThere is a rust spot developing on the lip of the hood. I have seen other Integ's with this same problem so I would guess that it's fairly common. I'll get it fixed some day...maybe with a carbon-fiber hood!
