I 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
Very easy audio install...speakers in
the right places and perfect fit in the
dash. Almost as perfect as my CRX.
There 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!
