Pros

A "higher class" (to me) Honda - electric windows & door locks made me feel safer in the city at night; easy to carpool, comfy for longer drives

Cons

Clear coat peeled terribly, didn't like the Champagne color at all; mileage was so-so at about 27 hwy

Good While It Lasted - 13 Years +/- — I was the second owner of this one - it had 39k miles when I bought it and 112k when I sold it. It was pretty much on it's last legs when I unloaded it at Carmax: - speedomoter didn't work when outside temp was below 40*; - CD player wouldn't release cd's - antenna got stuck going up & down - clear coat was peeling on the entire car But she was a good, reliable one while I had her!

Small, Slick And Easy To Manuever — When I got this car it only had about 48,000 mileage if I'm correct. Now it read 75,511 mileage. That's the original for a 1996. It's great for commuting and also great to park within tight spots. I'm the second owner and I had no problems with this car.

Cool Little Car — Awesome little car. Fun to drive. Would definetly be more fun with a turbo. Hardly any maintenance. I've owned the car for about 5 years and put about 40k miles on it and havent repaired anything on it. Probably never gonna get rid of it.

Best In Class. Hands Down Recommend. — Bone stock silver '96 Integra. Great car, fairly low mileage for the model year, great commuter car (30-35 mpg highway). Great handling, corners fast and flat with no body roll, although the ride can be a bit jarring on uneven pavement. Good acceleration and great stability at high speeds, although it is unfortunately an automatic. I am 6'2" and lanky and feel snug but not cramped in the cockpit. Loads of cargo space with the back seat folded down, I can easily fit a 32" flat screen TV, a suitcase, and a week's worth of groceries with room to spare. However, probably would not comfortably seat more than 3 full size adult males. Great car, a very fun car to drive. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a very reliable yet sporty little coupe with low running and maintenance costs, yet still a cut above any comparable American or Korean competitor. For the tuning crowd, this might be the definitive platform to build your custom ride.

Sporty feeling, gas mileage, good looking cheap car, JDM YO!!?!?

Cons

I Love This Car. I Plan To Keep It For A While. — Nice car, they come with 4 wheel disc brakes, which is rare on hondas. They hold resale value, aren't too heavy, and the Japanese 1998 spec Type R engine makes 210 horsepower. The car is not too heavy and this one even has a/c and power steering that function perfectly! I have tons of parts coming already and will keep you updated.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

This Car Is Definitely Another Great Car From Honda. — This was a very fun car to drive! I have never drove another car that will hug curves like this one! It's like driving a go-cart! plus the engine that comes in it (DOHC B18) is pretty sick with a 99-00 Civic SI tranny!

Perfect Car For The First Time Buyer. — The car was a pretty reliable all around car. Peformance wise, it wasn't all that bad, but wasn't that great either. It was just you're average car that got great gas mileage. It had not needed any repairs when I owned it, was a well built car, engine ran strong. Interior/exterior was perfect, nothing wrong with it, liked the way it looked. Gas mileage was great, $20 to fill it up, and got around 450 to a tank, what more could you ask for? The car was a blast to drive, had all the features I wanted in a car. 5 speed, 2 door, sunroof. Perfect first car for someone.
