1997 Acura Integra Hatchback GS 2dr Hatchback


Review

This is an awesome car. It does everything that it's supposed to do.


Best Features

Reliability. Only needs gas, oil changes, and tires.


Worst Features

The interior design is dated. Unusable back seat - but it's not supposed to be a family cruiser anyway.

Review

I am the original owner of this car and love it. It has been extremely reliable and I have only had to have the standard maintenance checks. It still looks great after 7 years! The service shop at Davis has been great

The leather that is in it is OK, I would have liked to have had a better quality.

1997 Acura Integra Hatchback GS 2dr Hatchback


Review

I've had my Integra GS 2-door for three years now. NO PROBLEMS! Quite possibly THE most reliable car I've ever owned! Quick, fuel efficient, parts are cheap, FUN to drive, strong engine for its size (buy a radar detector), and you'd be surprised what you can fit in the trunk when the back seats are folded down! The backseats aren't terribly comfortable for any trip longer than 2 hours. Seriously cramped. Front seats have lots of room, esp. head room. I'm 6'2" and have PLENTY of headroom. I HIGHLY recommend the car for college students who need cheap reliable transport. EASY to parallel park and small.


Best Features

Folding rear-seats are extremely useful, and greatly increase storage space. Great handling, quiet strong engine, cheap parts, simple controls.


Worst Features

Cup holders are good for cans of soda, and that's about it. Forget about your coffee, drink it before you drive. Engine COULD be more powerful, but that's what the RSX is for :). Backseats are tiny, but you don't buy a coupe to transport people.

Review

The Acura Integra is just a great small sports car. It has good pickup for a small engine and handles great. It is very comfortable and has a nice interior layout. I have driven this car from 0-53,000 miles without even blinking and I haven't always been easy on it. I highly recommend this car to others.


Best Features

the back seats fold down for a lot of room


Worst Features

None

Review

I used to drive a 1990 Integra LS. I replaced it with this '97 GS after 212,000 miles on my '90. The 90 still had the original clutch and ran great. The '97 is not too much different. Same 4 cyl engine... could use a little more power, but not bad overall. It looks a little faster than it really is. If you really want the power, there are several aftermarket parts to add. Mine is stock however.


Best Features

The ride is smooth, even at higher speeds. The handling is excellent with it's larger tires and lower profile. Overall, very fun to drive and much better gas mileage than other "sports cars".


Worst Features

The cup holders are under the radio, so a "Big Gulp", with the smaller base, will fit, however, the cup will block part of the radio. The '90 didn't even have cup holders...
