1996 Acura Integra LS 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this new. After 180K I can tell you that this car was made INCREDIBLY well!!! The stories you hear about Acura r true. Other than having to replace the radiator, I've done nothing vs. an occasional tune up and the 'usual' (change clutch at 140K, timing belt, brakes, etc.). Engine and transmission have worked flawlessly since day one and still very responsive and peppy. Only "gripe" is that parts of the paint have started to bubble up and show it's age, but heck, it IS 15 yrs old. If you're looking for a well-made car that will STILL serve you well- then look no further.


Favorite Features

Reliable plus!!! Nimble, handles great. A car you can COUNT ON!!!


Suggested Improvements

They got this one right. Only blemish is that body integrity isn't great. Paint and fiberglass bumpers are only parts of the car that starts to show age.

Review

This is a fantastic car! Purchased in 1996, I'm the original owner. Extremely reliable. No problems. The only thing I would change is larger cup holders and more interior storage for CDs, etc. Also, my headlights also (lately) seem to burn out quickly, have no reason why. Pros: Super fast, the trunk is very roomy and this car has back seats that fold down for extra storage. I plan to get a new car at some point, but I can't seem to part with it! I'm happy to spend my money on travel and continue to drive this fabulous Acura!


Favorite Features

Comfortable and peppy! Love the manual transmission.


Suggested Improvements

This car needs more storage! Larger cup holders; more interior storage space for CDs, sunglasses, etc. Also, the headlights could be brighter and seem to burn out very quickly.

Review

Picked this little four door up to use as a high-mileage commuter. Putting on 100 miles a day might sound abusive, but after two solid years I've only changed the oil and one set of rotors. Runs aggressively fast if you're not afraid of high revs and it's very, very nimble. Great comfort in the seats for long drives with the adjustable lumbar support. Nice big trunk and the fold-down rear seat is genius for carting home the assorted skis, lumber and other necessities. All in all, a great performing commuter and a sporty weekend curb-hugger. Highly recommend taking one out for a spin.


Favorite Features

The moon roof is a great touch with the separate sun/noise slide. Nice clean lines and looks very sleek for a car that's now 12 years old.


Suggested Improvements

Road noise can be a bit high depending on where you live, but mostly I'd like to see a bit less lateral roll in tight corners.

Review

My Girlfirend and i bought this car mainly for her to drive. The only complaint i have so far is that it's auto transmission seems to be poorly programed and deteriorates the cars responsivness. The AT has to much slop for a car of this type and can be quite frustrating in its ponderous search for the right gear durring more aggressive driving. If buing this car i reccomend steering clear of the auto transmission. Else i can vouch that this is by far the most reliability for the money. These integras are top of the list for reliability. It is for the most part a quick car that is quite fun to drive.

Automatic Transmission is a frustration most of the time.
