Acura Integra is fun and reliable
By Kathi on
1997 Acura Integra LS 2dr Hatchback
I love my car and am having a hard time
accepting that I have to sell it. I
bought it brand new in 1997, and I have
not had any major problems with it at
all, only regular maintenance checkups.
The gas mileage is excellent,
especially for highway driving. The car
is peppy and agile, which makes it fun
to drive (I recommend manual
transmission for the most fun). Also,
you don't need a VTEC engine to get
good pickup. Composed of Honda parts,
the Integra is also extremely reliable.
If I weren't moving to Europe, I would
choose to drive my car until the wheels
fell off. No kidding!
I love the back seats that fold down to
allow for lots of trunk space. Also,
the power moon roof is fun to open in
nice weather, and the CD audio system
has a pretty good sound for standard
My only suggestion is to have less
cabin noise. It only became noticeable
as I got older and started riding in a
Mercedes, which is known to be a quiet
luxury car, on a regular basis. Also,
this is not a car for tall people with
long legs. It was comfy for me, though!
