What A Two Door Sport Hatchback Should Be! — Acura got the recipe near perfect with the Integra! It's unfortunate they made the corporate decision to drop two door vehicles from the line up and focus on sport utility vehicles. Their current design philosophy has polarized customers. For the premium price, Acura has not distanced itself perceptually from Honda as well as Lexus did from Toyota.

97 Integra — I bought the car to daily drive. I get about 30 MPG. It may lack some power but is a blast to drive around. I havnt spend much on maintenance at least nothing other than oil changes. The outside of the car looks pretty good that why I bought it. The interior is small is the only down side

The Teggy — Love Integras overall but this one has seen better days. 200k on the clock.. (The Odometer I mean. The actual clock gave out around 200,000 xD ). Fun to drive and easy on gas. Good for delivering pizzas around town :) really?

I Love This Car — the car is very fast and sporty looking fun and easy to do up as in custom wise really fun to drive sounds loud but the only thing is the cops likes to point and glear at you and sometimes pull you over to see if you own it

Cons

Turbo — I love my car because its a sleeper. No one expects my stock looking car to be fast, but it is real funny when i step on it next to an unsuspecting muscle car and my fully built B18B1 turbo lights up the tires as i blow their doors off! I have done all the work to my car and i am ver proud of it

Will Never Own A "car" That Is Not Acura/honda — EVERYTHING RIGHT DOWN TO THE BADGES ON THE CAR. The only thing that could have been better is the size of the cup holders but it really doesn't matter. I mean you don't buy a sports car to put drinks in it that's why they have coolers and mini-vans. Four cylinder cars have it all now days, you can get more power out of the engine, maybe not torque but to some people that doesn't matter. Great gas milage. Just an all around nice looking cars. I wish they would have never stopped making the good ole TEGS!

Like It Better Than Many New I Have Owned — I love this car! Bought it used with a bunch of miles, but good outside, and interior 9/10. It's loaded, great performance for its size, and it handles! Like it better than any I owned since 1979 Trans Am. It is the car I have liked best in thirty years. It is pure fun. Open the windows, and sunroof and drive! It makes going to work a pleasure!

Breaks

Gizzer — Drives like a honda should, breaks like a honda should not, but it breaks like a b18 should. Oil problems, electrical problems, distributor problems, etc. But I have fun getting from point a to b. I reccommend this car to whoever loves to hate their cars.
