My first new car...and I still have it!
By Sagehen on
1993 Acura Vigor GS 4dr Sedan
After a 158000 miles as the original
owner, I can honestly say I still
consider this my "new" car. The
driving experience is great whether I
am tooling along at 70 down the highway
or driving through the local mountains
to the in-laws! Sadly, they stopped
making them after only a few years,
which makes them somewhat unique and
collectible (yeah!) but also
contributes to making parts a little
more difficult to find (sigh). Have
friend at work who bought one used and
loves his as much as I do mine.
Five-cylinder, 5-speed manual
transmission provides plenty of get-up
and go; both interior and exterior
styling are very good. Option package
on GS was fairly complete.
Be forewarned: While this car is a
favorite of drivers and Honda/Acura
enthusiasts alike, it is not
necessarily a favorite of mechanics.
Some quirky mechanical and engineering
design features means it can take a
little longer to fix than normal.
