I owned this car for 12 years, with out
any major mechanical failures, other
than a distributor cap replacement and
a faulty CD changer, which Acura
replaced under warranty. The Vigor is
fun to drive, and it's engine produces
a warm purr. The cabin is quiet,
although the windows can knock a little
in high wind. Great cornering and
brakes. It has all the amenities of an
expensive luxury sedan.
The temporary presets on the radio are
great. One touch to save all the local
radio stations, and another to revert
to the originals. Also love the
quality of the leather, especially the
soft, wide read armrest. Great support
for driver's arms on both sides.
Excellent fog lights.
Wish the horn buttons on the steering
wheel were a bit larger. Glare from
the driver's side dashboard top is
excessive under certain conditions.
Vigors are rare and I like it. They
look stylish and rich. You have
everything in one car. Plus, 5 speed
I have always liked these cars when I
saw them on the road, but I could never
imagine that I would own one. I could

Rare, very rare. Manual transmission.
Torque engine and very high class.
Unbelivable stereo system in the GS

Could use some back seat legroom, but
oh well, it's enough - the car is
designed driver comfort and pleasure.
I bought this car with 165k on it and
since have put on 80k. Aside from the
usual maintance items I have had no
real problems except for the front
rotors, they tend to warp quickly
(common on all early honda's and
acura's) and replaceing them usually
means the wheel bearings to. I expect
the car to last another 3 years or so.
I put on 40k a year, so I need a
reliable car - this one has not let me
Lots of room in the front seat, smooth
aceleration, great highway car
not so good on gas in town, brakes, and
backseat a little tight
Just recently purchased this car for
our 16 yr old daughter with 134K. It
looks good, rides great--couldn't ask
for a new car to do any better,
Changed out the radio for a more
recent model to accomodate a cd
changer. Had some mechanics to look it
over and was told nothing to worry
about especially for the price we
bought it for (less than $3000).Now
husband and older daughter want one
just like it!
Classy/ageless style and quality of
car interior and exterior
Needs cupholders badly, and the power
sunroof could have used the tilt
Before my purchase of a new vheicle, I
test drove, Lexus, Infinity, BMW 3 and
5 series, Acura Legend, Nissan, etc.
I am the original owner and I have
about 75000 miles and no problems. I
love its potent performance, agility
and overall style. I just wish they
had cup holders, and other accessories.
