Review

Last Acura Sports Coupe. Dying breed; most have been trashed by tuners or totaled in street races. Find a clean stock one and grab it! It will only go UP in value!

Review

Bought the car new and have only to replace the battery. 85,000 plus miles and no tune-up or plugs needed yet. Normal oil changes every 5,000 miles are my only expense so far other than a set of tires.

Best car I have every owned - period!


Best Features

Engine screams to 8k rps - truly a pocket rocket and great gas mileage too.


Worst Features

LED headlights

Review

I bought the car for 3000 dollars less than the Blue Book value from a dealership in the Philadelphia Area.

It came with 70,000 miles and it was in wonderful condition.

The exterior flows-- it's designed so well and it looks so sexy!
It's so smooth.
By the way, mine's red.
;)

I like simplistic interiors similar to that of the '98 Hondas.
My family has owned four generations of Accords, and I love the older looking interiors.
This car's interior is simplistic, yet futuristic, and that's why I love it.

The slip angle at all four corners of the car was designed perfectly, and with MacPherson Struts, I was surprised at how perfectly this car corners.

Fast, sexy, and reliable.
5 stars


Best Features

The K20Z engine with 210 horsepower stock has plenty of torque for a four-banger with great gas mileage. Revs so smoothly throughout the whole RPM range. The suspension, including the MacPherson Struts. The simplistic, yet futuristic interior. The sexy exterior with its aggressive styling.


Worst Features

None.

Great car in every way, very fun to drive, some road noise but its still a sports car so whatever. No problems since i bought it, car has 20k more miles and runs like the day it came out of the factory.

Worst Features

Acura not making this car anymore, or something even similar to the Integra.

Review

This car has a nice combination of fuel economy, reliability and performance. That said, it does have some negatives. Mine came with red paint that after 4 years was severely faded. Had it repainted. I'm 6' and of average build and weight and found the seats very uncomfortable. I'm also an upholsterer. I rebuilt and reupholstered the seats in a faux suede (were leather). They are now comfortable. Like most Hondas, excessive road noise. I completely removed the interior and applied sound deadening materials. This insulated the cabin to outside noise, but road noise will still be transmitted into the cabin. The project goal: create a luxury sport coupe. Goal shortfall: road noise.


Best Features

Push down (way down) on the accelerator on a curvy road and it goes where you point it. Fuel economy with performance. Nicer exterior design as compared to the Si, its sibling. A friend said "your car looks like its going fast" (it was parked at the time).


Worst Features

My main complaint would have to be the the inherent road noise. I think that this is a problem that Honda needs to address in many of its vehicles. In my opinion, if they do that, there won't be any better value for the money.
