My husband and I Rebuilt this acura
(salvage front end colision) I was
very sceptical that a 1.8 would have
far more power than my civic 1.6 well
when we finished the rebuild we raced
them (both pretty much stock) this car
(integra) took off and left my little
civic choke'n in its dust (lol) I
love this car its a 5-spd thats the
only way to go if you want POWER I
dont know why I was not in tune with
an acura years ago. It is VERY
simular to a Lexus in luxuary, mine is
the special edition very much like the
gsr with leather interior and POWER!
I've had my car now for about 6 years now. I think for what the car is worth, it's a very reliable and good car. Since buying the car i've not come across any problem... as long as you keep up with your regular maint. you're good. At 138K still goes up to 110mph not so bad!
After 7 years I'm about to sell my
Integra and will definately miss it.
This car is rather spartan in the
interior (a disappointment when I
bought it), but the engineering
(engine, manual transmission and
brakes, especially) are the best of any
car, hands down. In the first few
months we had to replace the drivers
airbag and the sun roof got stuck, but
since then it's been near perfect. At
105,000 miles I recently had to replace
the radiator (they use a cheaper
plastic top as an original) and,
incredibly, I'm still on the original
brake pads!! Unfortunately, I've gotten
too many tickets with this car and it's
time to move on.
My Girlfirend and i bought this car
mainly for her to drive. The only
complaint i have so far is that it's
auto transmission seems to be poorly
programed and deteriorates the cars
responsivness. The AT has to much slop
for a car of this type and can be quite
frustrating in its ponderous search for
the right gear durring more aggressive
driving. If buing this car i reccomend
steering clear of the auto transmission.
Else i can vouch that this is by far
the most reliability for the money.
These integras are top of the list for
reliability. It is for the most part a
quick car that is quite fun to drive.
Picked this little four door up to use as a high-mileage commuter. Putting on 100 miles a day might sound abusive, but after two solid years I've only changed the oil and one set of rotors. Runs aggressively fast if you're not afraid of high revs and it's very, very nimble. Great comfort in the seats for long drives with the adjustable lumbar support. Nice big trunk and the fold-down rear seat is genius for carting home the assorted skis, lumber and other necessities. All in all, a great performing commuter and a sporty weekend curb-hugger. Highly recommend taking one out for a spin.
