A Pretty Good Car
By David on


1990 Acura Integra LS 4dr Sedan


It's had fewer problems than other cars we've owned. I've done most of the work on it myself. One major problem was that it wouldn't start when hot. After checking on the Internet for a while, I fixed it at no cost by re-soldering a cracked solder joint in the main relay. Another problem was that one couldn't immediately remove the ignition key after starting the car. Again, the Internet came to the rescue and I had to clean the transmission lever electrical contacts (a lot of screws to remove to get to it). The ignition switch failed but got fixed by cleaning and lubing the contacts. A lot of work getting to it. Other problems were mostly like this, little cost but some work needed.

Best Features

Back seats fold forward resulting in a long "luggage compartment".

Worst Features

CV joint boots seem to break too often. Too difficult to gain access to switch contacts that get dirty. Hubcaps too easy to break against curbs. Service manual is too vague at explaining what the computer does and reports via flash codes. Most all problems I've had didn't get detected by it.
