I have only had this car for a year, but I have to say, with the exception of minor things like changing my brakes and the moonroof drainage tube popping loose and feeding water into my passengers floor (I paid 40 dollars to fix), I love the car. It's strong, reliable, and has a unique design which lets people know what kind of car it is, but not year. All in all, a strong car with equally strong features.

This '97 Integra GS-R V-tech, purchased new, has performed beyond the call of duty with only routine maintenance. After 10 years all systems, 5-speed transmission, engine + components, shocks, electricals are still working smoothly. Never in the shop except for state inspection and routine oil change, tire installation, etc. I'm continually amazed it uses virtually no oil. Though it doesn't look like a sports car, it acts like one, with excellent acceleration (especially when the v-tech kicks in) with quick-response precise handling and excellent match of transmission + engine. The high-quality paint still looks rich. Nothing in the interior or on exterior has ever broken. A tight, fun car!

I drive this car on the highway mostly and get 33mpg. If I drive in the city I get 29mpg. I think Edmunds underrated this cars fuel economy, I consistently get higher miles per gallon and have the automatic transmission. Of course I don't beat up on it so this is probably why. This car is fun to drive, and handles well. I don't have to brake for turns which helps get great gas mileage.

I've owned an integra GSR for 3 years
now and have had no mechanical
problems at all.
With the reliability issue
established, i can say this is an
exciting performance car. If you're
looking for a practical, yet exciting
sedan with a 5speed, look no further.

If you are looking for an extremely
reliable sedan, look no further than
this car. I've owned my car for 4 years
& have never had to service it other
than normal maintenance & new tires.
This car is fun to drive and is fairly
quiet on the highway (when the sunroof
is closed) Open the sunroof & it's a
differant story. Other than that I
give this car Highest Ratings!!!

I actually went from a Ford Probe GT (i know, gag) to this beautiful Acura
Integra LS 4dr. So far I have fallen in love with it. The look is sleek, sporty
yet sophisticated. I needed something with a little more dependability, and
wanted to look good driving it! It's pretty quick for it's 4 cyl engine, my probe
had a turbo charged engine and this VTEC engine in my Acura offers right
about the same, or more "get up and go" All in all I'm truely satisfied with my
purchase and hope to get a few good years in with my new toy =)
