Performance - 3
This is the weakest aspect to me, of course this is just the RS, but it's slow.
It handles great, I love taking corners with it. It's FWD, so if that's your thing then you will love it.
Comfort - 4
The chair's are nice but not great, driving for more than an hour gets uncomfortable.. The cup holders are pretty small.
Value - 5
This car has so much going for it, and the price is excellent.
Awesome car, but just slightly too slow, and spongy.
Interior - 5
Mine is black and blue.. it's immaculate.
Exterior - 5
The design is still excellent and eye catching.
Build - 4
140k miles and still holding together very well.
140k miles and nothing is wrong.

resurrected my '96 two years ago. it had been sitting for 2 years, the prior owner parked it when the engine light went on around smog test time. picked it up for $300. started it up, was not running too well, like on 2 cylinders. Got it home then pulled down the codes. misfire cyl 2 &3 and bad secondary O2 sensor.
Replaced cap, rotaor, plugs and wires. Replaced O2 sensor. The car fired right up. 1st test drive was an awesome experience, great acceleration!!!. Passed smog with flying colors!!! only mechanical issue was the coil recently failed. Replace witha new one, and no problems since. This is a very fun car to drive!! I live in the mountains and this car corners like a dream.

I bought my 1996 Acura Integra GSR (5 sp manual) used in the fall of 1998 right after I graduated from college. I was 22 years old and had just landed my first job in the real world. At the time, the purchase price of $18k nearly broke the bank, but I loved the car and wanted to make a long term investment. Well, it is now the fall of 2009, I am 33 years old, and I still have my GSR and I still look forward to driving it every time I get in! Unfortunately, the time has come for me to get a new car because it is now impractical to own a 2-door due to all of the trips I have to make with my young children. I have loved owning my GSR and I will miss it very, very much. This car will one day be a collectible.

Recently sold my GSR. I put about 150K on it before selling. Never had any major issues, except regular maintenance items that need to be addressed in an older car; brakes, clutch, suspension etc. Very fun car to drive and I got about 28 mpg on average.

This truly was a wonderful car to own and I will miss it. There's something special about popping it into 3rd to blast the revs and merge onto the freeway. After this vehicle I will always need a good amount of performance, I've been spoiled.
So, I wrote a detailed report on the history of our Acuras (my 2007 TL is our 4th) focusing on the lower quality of the current generation Acuras compared to our prior ones (1987 Integra, 1997 CL, 199...
