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.
Try adjusting the kick down switch about 1/4" tighter. My 96 with automatic seems to not hunt as much at this setting. Still goes into overdrive too early for me when accelerating, so I just drop it to D3 on those occasions.
