We drove our Vigor for nearly 10 years,
then kept it for another 2 years as our
extra car. It was almost never in the
shop, and I don't recall it ever
leaving me stranded. It was peppy,
handled well, and got great gas
mileage. It was a great car to drive
and was very reliable. I would
recommend any Acura based on our
experience with this one.
The way it handled, accelerated and
drove was great. It got great gas
mileage and was fun to drive.
The interior was very small. Back seat
passengers had NO leg room, even
children complained about it. A regular-
sized car seat would not fit into the
back seat rear-facing, only the infant
Had the car since day one. Used in
mostly town driving so my car is not
one of those 90% highway miles cars.
I follow what Acura recommends for
maintainance, faithfully. Oil is
changes 2 or 3 times a year. Every 2

I have never had any mechanical
problems at all but this is normal for
this model car. The Vigor has a
following and even has a Yahoo club.
The car rides great and is solid at 100
mph. At 55-75 mph it feels like its
People tend to keep these cars so if
one becomes available, give it a look.
Only negative, small amount of leg room
back seat,but huge trunk.
Everything. This 14 yr old car is a
winner and a keeper
I purchased this from a friend after I
totalled my Honda Civic at 236,000
miles. I have 155+ on it right now and
just bought a 2002 Honda Accord. I am
already going through withdrawals about
selling this car.
Snug comfortable fit in the front
seat. Had everything I need except a
blasted cup holder.
The vigor is a wonderfully designed BMW
style car from Honda. See the lists of
cons vs pros in this review for an
objective review. If I wrote a text
review it would be bias since I own the
car and would tend to favor the pros.
