I absolutely love my Acura!!! This has to be the best car I've owned! The driving is outstanding. Such a smooth, quiet ride and is so much fun to drive. Never had any problems and don't think I will for a very long time.
The sleek body style, it's sporty but luxury at the same time.
Don't make them so easy to break into. Make sure it's locked up tight at night or it will go missing.
I bought this car in early 2004 with 109000 and I've got 129000 now and let me tell ya, it doesn't feel any older then my friends brand new EVO and I've almost got it just as fast as well. Must haves for the ultra performance person: coilover shocks, cat-back, short ram air intake, header, rims and good tires, lightweight flywheel, stage 2 clutch, and some lightweight pulleys and you'll be beating v-8 mustangs in no time.
The mass ability to upgrade your performance and body styling to your heart's content with good aftermarket support.
I bought this car because a different car I ordered still wasn't here after 3 months. I was thinking I'd sell it after a couple years. Now, 8 years later, I hope to keep it past 150,000 miles. Everything else these days seems so far off the ground and bloated, this car has everything you need to get where you want in a hurry with maximum stealth. I take it to the ski resort all season (with winter tires) blowing past all those idiots who think they need SUVs in the snow. The supple ride and sharp handling are amazing (the RSX is such as step backward!). Not a quiet car, but no rattles after 120k miles, average of 30 mpg, no slip in the original clutch, still thrives on high revs.
5000-8100 RPM, flawless shifter, strong brakes, quick handling, basic but high-quality interior components, everything seems designed to last.
This was the last Honda product in the US not having an electric motor driving the interior temp control (it's a little stiff) -- that's my most significant quibble!
This car is excellent for those who
live in warm-weather climates and dont
need to deal with snow or rain for
half a year. It's fast when you want
it to be, excellent on gas mileage and
always turns heads wherever you go.
This is a great car for a high school
or college kid that needs something
reliable yet relaitvley inexpensive.
I would certainly purchase another
Integra GS-R if I lived in a state
such as Florida or California.
Engine - The engine is very reliable,
and sturdy. You can beat on it when
you have the urge to go fast, and it
will still come back asking for more.
Transmission - For inexpierienced
manual transmission drivers this is a
great car to learn on, Honda did an
excellent job with this car
If you really have the need for speed,
some obvious enchancements could be
made such as exhaust, headers, Cold-
Air-Intake etc. However, bone stock
this car can be tons of fun and doesnt
need any addition aftermarket parts to
be fast, and give you the ride of a
