1994 Acura Vigor Sedan GS 4dr Sedan


Review

This is the best car I have owned new or used and I have owned ten other cars including a Mercedes. Bought the car new. Great road car that is very agile when you need to pass. Can drive it in very heavy snow and not get stuck. No major problems with the engine or drive train. Replaced timing chain at 65K and again at 125K miles as prevention maintenance. The muffler system lasted for 15 years. Tune-ups every 30K miles, oil changes, brakes about every 50K miles and tires pretty much sum up the cost to drive it for 16 years plus. Honda should think about putting the 2.5 five cylinder in their new TSX instead of the six.


Favorite Features

How the car handles on the road, especially at cruising speed. You could surprise a lot of BMW 325s and Mercedes C classes when the car was younger and it is still pretty responsive. The standard features on the car that are options on other cars.


Suggested Improvements

The only thing that keeps the car from being a 10 on build quality is the paint job. On this model year Honda changed how it applied primer and the finish coat to the car. After about five years the primer started coming through the finish coat and Honda did not tell owners about the problem.

Review

We have owned this car for 7 years and I have had to replace almost every major part except the motor. Trany 128,000 miles, starter, alternator, axles, 02 sensors, seats are torn etc. This is the worst car that I have ever owned. if Acura is one of the best car lines in the world I would hate to see the worst. would never buy an Acura because this was such a lemon.


Favorite Features

The inline 5 made for a smooth drive.


Suggested Improvements

Better quality parts. Locate the oil filter to someplace that doesn't take a babies hand to get to it.

Review

A great achievement in engineering. At the time of release, the Vigor just didn't attract a big enough audience to keep up the pace with the lexus 300 series (which wasnt built as well as the Vigor at the time). This car has the total package for the mula, and still outperforms many modern sedans. I've driven many cars, and this design is very impressive. They are quickly turning into classic collecter items all over. Classic lines, fun to drive, and reliable even over 200k. Test drive a Vigor if you ever spot one for sale. If it doesn't impress you, then it hasn't been maintained well. I will have this car until they don't make parts for it anymore!


Favorite Features

Power and prowessness.


Suggested Improvements

Needs new leather!

Review

Acura Vigor, the name might sound too strong, but pull back the seat, put the trans in D4 and raise the gas slowly, you will feel the difference which you cant experience in a new mitsubishi eclipse(e.g). Honda has done a great job on this car, I tested it and it ran 0-60 in 8secs where consumer guide said 8.8secs(idiots). Anyways, this is a car that you will enjoy in every aspect, with 8 channel surround sound(4tweeters and 4speakers) if u can spend u can set-up 8 speakers along with a sub and make the worlds best sound system or upgrade 2-way speakers in the front and 3-way speakers in the back panel with a 10inch sub in the trunk as I did and ENJOY! For $4000, i bought a BMW M3 kicker lol


Favorite Features

Alot of front area space(i dont care if 2people cramp in the back). By the way sport sedans have small back seat space, even the G35. Great leather interior, a classis sedan inside/out :)


Suggested Improvements

I wish it had a turbo charger, it would have gone 0-60 in 6secs.

Review

I bought my Vigor because it was an Acura (I've dealt with 4 honda/acuras in the past, and know that they are very reliable), it was a stylish design, and it was lady-owned with many reciepts. The g25a inline 5 cylinder is great! It's a little more of a high reving car (peak HP is at 6500 rpms), but the engine is soooo smooth. I added a RActive filter and I can feel more bottom end torque, better top speed, and the best part, a mean, deep throttle growl. DONT DOUBT THE I5, GET A VIGOR, IT WONT DO YOU WRONG!


Favorite Features

~The G25a 5 cylinder engine...176HP, 170 ft/lbs torque ~Black leather interior ~Excellent sound system ~alloy wheels


Suggested Improvements

~Needs to be a little bigger---more leg room for rear passengers ~Wish a factory spoiler came with it ~16" wheels instead of 15"

Review

This is the best car I've owned. Not a single problem, and I now have over 87,000 miles. Extremely comfortable and very attractive.


Favorite Features

The seats are extremely comfortable. The seat bottom is deep and provides support to the thigh, and the back and bottom are somewhat curved to fit your body. Most of all, the car is very reliable.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders would be nice but obviously not critical.

Review

Excellent value. 6 cylinder performance with the economy and maint of a 4 cylinder. Very reliable. Dealer parts are expensive. The auto trans is as smooth as anything on the planet.


Favorite Features

The weight of the car is such that you can toss it around. The 4 value 2.5 liter requires a few revs for more spirited driving which certainly is sounds nice.


Suggested Improvements

Replaced the steering rack and brake rotors prematurely in my mind.
