Review of the 2001 Acura Integra

  • An absolute gem back in 1994. Eight years is a long time to go without a major update, though. The Integra replacement can't come soon enough.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Type R model for the track, GS-R model for daily driving, hatchback utility, frugal with fuel, excellent reliability and resale value.

  • Cons

    Aged dash design, creaky structure, poor road and wind isolation, funky styling.

  • What's New for 2001

    Carpeted floor mats are newly standard, and an emergency trunk release is added to the inside of the sedan's cargo area. Four new colors round out the changes for 2001, Integra's final year before an all-new model debuts for 2002.

What a machine

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Acura Integra Type R 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

This vehicle is one of my favorite cars. I drive this vehicle like a race car. It performs when requested, accelerates with hesitation, and screams like a motorcycle! The car is very fun to drive especially when it reaches VTEC! The sound of the cross-over from normal cam lobes to higher lobes provides a exciting moment to enthusiast. Sit back in a nice and comfortable bucket seat, enjoy the gripping power assited by LSD and watch your tach as it reaches 8500 RPM. It is no V-8 but it performs like one!

This car is nothing less than INCREDIBLE! I have driven many cars, and I must say this is more fun than a BMW M3 and Porsche Boxster Sport. Its fast and furious, nimble, responsive and just down right FUN! **WARNING** this vehicle is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!

Vehicle: 2001 Acura Integra Type R 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

I love my Integra TYpe R. This is the longest I've ever kept a vehicle, almost 4 years.




Most capable fwd available

Vehicle: 2001 Acura Integra Type R 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

The car handles like a dream, it screams all the way to 8.5k and loves every minute of it. I've owned this car for almost 3 years now. I've driven it across the country numerous times and I've averaged almost 2,000 miles per month. I have to say that no other car offers the performance, comfort, ability and practicality of the Type R. There's not a thing I would change about it.




Type r awesome if willing

Vehicle: 2001 Acura Integra Type R 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

This is a great car. There is very little Horsepower/Torque below the 5700 vtec changeover, so be ready to rev the engine like a motorcycle. Handling is the best I have ever seen in a front wheel drive, or any car for that matter (under $50k). Balance is near perfect, the limited slip is excellent.




Classic car of the future

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Acura Integra Type R 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Increadible feel. Although it can be used as a daily driver, the car responds well to weekend auto-cross and track events. For those intrested in a car that is responsive, fun and easy to drive, and won't kill your pocketbook, this is the car for you! The car is in limited production as well, making it a true classic car for the future!
