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.
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
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...
