Vehicle: 1998 Acura Integra GS 2dr Hatchback

I bought my integra with 132,000 miles on it. I did a little maintence to it; fluid flushes, tune up, etc.. and I've had zero problems with it. I've got an aftermarket header, catback exhaust and stickier tires on it. It isn't the quickest thing out there, but for a 1.8 four it goes pretty well. The tires really help in the corners, and it's by far the best front-wheel-drive car I've ever driven. I also love the gas mileage. The worst mileage I've ever gotten was 30.5. My best is 38.3. The only negative that I can think of is the ride. This isn't my dad's buick, but if you were expecting that then go buy a buick. I can't wait for the next 100,000 miles to fly by.




Great car for the price

I've had this car for 2 years now and it's just like the day I got it. It performs nicely. It has the initial torque I was looking for. Handles real smoothly in the highways. I'm not a big fan of full leather interior but it's more luxurious. Haven't had any engine problems besides the stock radiator that gave up on me, which was about the right time it should wear down; 120k. Clutch still grabs hard and flywheel revs up faster than most other sport cars I've driven. Comes with 15 in wheels and larger brake rotors than the 94-97 models which is another bonus. Looking back at it, I've got no regrets buying this car.




Great 1st sports car.

Vehicle: 1998 Acura Integra GS 2dr Hatchback

I've been driving my Integra (98 GS 2dr 5-speed) for almost 4 years now. In those 4 years I have put almost 100,000 miles on it. I have never once gone to get in my car and it not start. I have never once had it break down. My stock clutch has 156,xxx miles on it, and has hardly any slipping. By far the easist manual transmission car ive ever owned. As far as performance goes, stock itll handle pretty good, and get up and go pretty good. If you put some money into the car (suspension, engine) Itll be a great handling, great performing daily driven car. My car has 156,000 miles on it, I beat on it daily, and it still runs like brand new and begs to be driven harder.

well i would have to say it is a good car i got the car at 100k still feels like its new. But if u really really look for speed i would suggest geting a GSR becuz the GS is fast but the not fast enuff it comes with 140 stock i added intake give me 10+hp(AEM)and a i changed the chip which gave me another 10-15hp, im pushing around 160 hp but i still dont feel like its enuff i would rater have the car in a stick shift !!!! becuz almost all gears change maxx at 4 rmp. Get the STICK SHIFT u will be happy GS is good but i kinda would say its a gurly car or older men would like the auto matic so far i havent had any real problems changed the battery and just did

For a 1.8 liter, these babies are very quick and nimble. Acura truely designed a legend with the Integra. Looks great and performs like a champ!

Though the Integra was an exceptionally reliable vehicle, its got some minor electric problems in components such as basic lock functions and A/C functions. CD player tends to die before its time dur to harsh ride on player balancers.
