What to expect from this car.
By ivanhoe on
1998 Acura Integra GS-R 2dr Hatchback
Owned for 6 years, 135k miles. Never
broke down, consistently gets 27 mpg
city/32 hwy, manuevers well, and is a
fun workhorse. The factory tires really
can't handle the car. It is not great
in the snow due to its weight, but with
the right tires(I suggest B Potenza
re730) wet weather and very mild snow
conditions are no problem. The antenna
motor has broke 2x for this
car. No A/C, electrical issues, and the
brakes have solid and steady stopping.
The factory radio is bad. It is a
pooru head unit and not as good as
similar cars. The speaker system is
worse. Overall, it is a well worth the
value. But remember it is still a $20k
Reliable and Peppy Engine. Well placed
dashboard and interior aspect. Exterior
styling remains modern. Handling beats
most cars hands down in its class.
Road Noise levels are high. I am
concerned with road noise as all Hondas
seem to have it more than Toyotas but
Hondas pretty much concentrates on the
basics and they have it down pat.
Materials can be better. Leather is not
even close to high end. Complete Stereo
