I was looking at a Celica GT when my
wife had purchased a 1999 Integra LS. I
loved the way it drove, then I compared
features. there was more bang for the
buck here. Aluminum Wheels, Sun roof,
ABS (which was not included on the
Celica GT) 4 wheel disc brakes, 140 HP.
The car tracked extremley well and has
some get up and go. I always like the
style of the Integra and had always
wanted one. I am glad that I changed my
mind and bought it. I hav not had any
problems with it, I do my maintenance
religiously. It is fun to drive with
great gas milage. I even like it better
than the new RSX, but if I ever get rid
of my Integra, I would get the RSX.
the car practically begs you to drive
it faster. every trip to work or the
store feels like a short grand prix.
the power is a nice match to the
suspension. sure the cupholders are
annoying and the top gear should have a
higher ratio, but otherwise it is as
exact expression of a small street
racer as any nsx or exotic. plus 100k
miles to the first tuneup and an engine
that feels like a motorcycle makes me
want to keep this one for a long time.
the high redline, hydraulic clutch,
extra balancing and carbon flywheel
make it feel like a formula car. the
feedback through the controls is
perfect. the body roll is great.
I bought my gsr in september 2003. I
love it. it so fun to drive. They
sould have never stopped making these
cars. The leather is so comfortable
and the transmission is nice and
tight. when the vtec kicks in the
sound is awesome and you can feel the
extra power that it gives you.
Handles great on stock suspension and
wheel and tire set up. Over all this
car is great in my opinion

I've had this car for about a year now
and it is a fun car to drive. The VTEC
engine is exciting to listen to. Once
you hit that 4500 rpm you just want to
keep revving the motor up. The only
downside to perfomance is that you
won't get that much torque compared to
high torquey cars, but on the long run
the VTEC system really helps for high
speeds. Third gear is the best gear and
after that its not really fun no more.
So you have to go back again. When I
first recieved this car I thought it
was a dissapointment, but it turned out
to be the best car.
My favorite features are the VTEC
engine, the small roomy interior, the
lightweighted chasis and the aero
design of the car.
The only improvement this car needs is
more torque, but it is sacraficed for
the VTEC. The passenger and driver
windows seal need better seals. The
climate console fell out on my car. The
leather gets pretty dull after constant
