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?

Pros

DOHC motor, Honda reliability, 30mpg in city, Rides nice, handles great, nice power for non-VTEC motor

Cons

Quick,fun, And Attractive — Great Car.. Really reiable. Costs basically nothing to drive if they have been maintained well. A really common car. The reliability proves why they are so common. Ive put 40000 KM on it since ive owned it.. not one problem. Highly recommened for a first sports car. Quick, economical, a blast to drive, and looks really clean with some rims

GREAT RELIABLE CAR ( FAST ) ( EASY TO MOD )

Cons

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!

1997 Acura Integra Gs — slow but a nice car to drive. leather interior is ill. deffinitely lacking in the speed and handling departments. 4 banger doesnt put out much and the chassis leaves for too much body roll. wonderful car to just cruise around in, in all weather but snow(fwd and too low)
