What to expect from this car.

Vehicle1998 Acura Integra GS-R 2dr Hatchback
ReviewOwned 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 car.
Best FeaturesReliable and Peppy Engine. Well placed dashboard and interior aspect. Exterior styling remains modern. Handling beats most cars hands down in its class.
Worst FeaturesRoad 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 system overhaul.
