Out of college I had a long commute into work (about 75 miles a day) and bought this car as a result. I've put about 60k miles on it in the last two years. It does a great job providing cheap, reliable transportation. Gets 33 mpg and is simple to work on. The only things I have had to do are change the muffler and midpipe (both rusted out) and driver's side window regulator. I also just recently put in Tokico HP struts because the old ones had lost a lot of their damping ability at 155k. In another year or so I'll do the timing belt/water pump. Still has the original clutch, we'll see how long it goes.
Great handling, fun car to drive with a 5-speed.
Sound system was poor, but that was easy to upgrade. Also added a rear sway bar off of a Civic Si for about $180 in parts, it bolts right up and vastly improves handling. The only other thing I wish it had was the 1.8L DOHC out of the Integra, great torquey engine. The SOHC is gutless at low rpm.
