It is more than 7 years now and 155000
miles old. Still running as if i just
took it out of the dealership !! The
only thing i had to fix was one
headlight, radio antenna (it got stuck
and I went through a car wash!). No
other repairs ... only maintenances !!
I would have definitely bought a new
one again ... if only they started
making them again :-(
Trouble-free. Initially i thought it
had very bad handling especially on wet
roads but later found out it was due to
the Michelin tires it comes with.
Changed to Kumho Tires and it made a
world of a difference. I can do 80mph
and it is still very stable !!
The only complaint of this almost
perfect car was the road noise.
This car is extremely reliable. In 3
yrs., I have only changed one headlight
and 2 sparkplugs, that's it. That's
amazing, esp. with the driving that I
do. This car is also fun to drive
(handling and smooth engine). I would
definitely recommend this car to the
I love the exterior design of the car.
The interior has excellent materials
and fit/finish is outstanding.
Handling and acceleration for this car
is also superb. I find the short-throw
5-speed stick shift to be smooth and
easy to use as well.
The sheetmetal is very thin, this
causes dents to occur more frequently.
One last suggestion is an improvement
on immediate acceleration. This means
that torque is lacking.
After 7 years I'm about to sell my
Integra and will definately miss it.
This car is rather spartan in the
interior (a disappointment when I
bought it), but the engineering
(engine, manual transmission and
brakes, especially) are the best of any
car, hands down. In the first few
months we had to replace the drivers
airbag and the sun roof got stuck, but
since then it's been near perfect. At
105,000 miles I recently had to replace
the radiator (they use a cheaper
plastic top as an original) and,
incredibly, I'm still on the original
brake pads!! Unfortunately, I've gotten
too many tickets with this car and it's
time to move on.
Comfortable to drive, stability in
turns, acceleration, braking, and
Back doors are are tin-like, especially
when someone slams them shut. Noisy
inside while driving on the freeway.
