Review

I have had it for almost a year know. Have not had any trouble with it except for the wear and tear but that is expected out of any car.


Favorite Features

5 Speed trans,speeds it reachs with out a turbo.reachs about 145mph after doing some modification to the car.


Suggested Improvements

Having turbo would be nice. Cup holders Having a SR20DET or a RB25DETT would have made the car more better do to it would out perform the compition. More people would have bought the car. I do recommend on buying this car but make sure u check the car be for just buying do to that you see a bk.

Review

Bought it with 28k miles and now has 183k. Has ran great. With manual trans. it is fun driving both in city and highway. Conducted only standard maintainance and with only minor repairs. Only thing showing wear at this point is interior but nothing out of the ordinary. There is still very little interior rattling. Engine sounds as though it can go at least another 100k miles and transmission is still smooth. Plenty of low-end torque and acceleration. It has been a fun car.


Favorite Features

Reliablility, rear wheel drive with a good suspension, good styling.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holder, relaunch this discontinued line (with same engine)

Review

I have loved this car. Changed the oil, changed the tires and battery. Had reccommended service. New brakes at 135000 miles. Only mechanical problem didn't happen until 160000+ miles. Had to replace the radiator etc, Still having that problem. Dealership coated the exterior on a regular basis for 2 years and finish still looks good.


Favorite Features

I enjoy driving a 5 speed and like the pick-up.


Suggested Improvements

Spoiler did not last and entire stereo has to be replaced including all speakers due some design in the original system.

Review

I bought the car with 194,000 miles. Now it has 230,000 plus, and still runs strong. Very fun car. Unique in that it is a compact import that is rear wheel drive! And you don't see them everywhere...they are a rare compared to other imports.


Favorite Features

Rear wheel drive!


Suggested Improvements

Turbo!

Review

I bought my 240 with 55K last year. Today it has 80K. I am a delivery boy at a chinese restaurant so i am ALWAYS in my car. Its reliability is absoultely amazing. I nevr have a problem. I do push the car to its limits and i always satified. It get to top speed quickly and the handling is outstanding. Ive gotten the car to about 125 mph and it stayed rock solid. It is also a great platform for customization. I recommend this car as a tuning car over any other car beacause its cheap and is load of power from the start. Civics are all and good but they suck performance wise as stock models. 240 RULES!

Review

I bought my 93 240 at 110K miles. Ever since it has given me horrible electric problems. Alternator goes out, both window motors fail, brake switch failed (3 times), speaker wires failed. If you read anything about this car you'll notice it has huge elctrical problems. The engine always ran strong though, and I never had to repair any part of the drivetrain at all. This car is SO much fun to drive, but not worth the expense. I'm buying an Acura Legend LS instead of another 240.


Favorite Features

Great Power, looks amazing, incredibly fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Very boring interior with seats that feel like 2X4's. Significant electrical problems.

Review

My 240 has 145,000 miles on it and it still runs VERY strong...it needs a new clutch and the heater isn't as hot as i'd like it but it is still a very good car for the money!


Favorite Features

the best feature of the car itself is the fact that it is rear wheel drive...there aren't that many 4 cylinder cars with rear wheel drive..that's why i like it so much


Suggested Improvements

they should have put the japanese SR20DET engine in the american models
