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


Review

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!


Best Features

Front lip, rims, carbon fiber instrument panels, specialized emblems, shifter, and motor!

Review

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!


Best Features

VTEC changeover, incredible handling, non-existent body roll.


Worst Features

6th gear for highway cruising.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

8.4k redline, great gearbox, precise handling, exclusivity


Worst Features

A little more torque wouldn't hurt, but that would require a completely different engine, and that's it.

Review

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.


Best Features

Engine; shifter (even though it could use a 6th gear); handling; styling


Worst Features

More torque for everyday driving.
