Cons

nothing

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

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.

My Acura — The car gets great gas mpg. The car is manual which i wanted for my performance needs. The maintenance on the car is slim to once every 4 months. The car is fun cause i can control what gear i want to be in, which makes it easier to powerslide.

5 Of 5 Stars — excellent vehicle, great performance and handling, no engine trouble so far, except for the ABS module which sometimes has a mind of its own. cost of ownership is minimal, except of the routine tune ups, great styling, and a great race machine

Good Reliable Car — good car, easy to sup up. Liked it a lot. Stock performance isn't amazing but thats easy to fix. Fun to drive. Cost of ownership is barely anything. The appearance isn't the greatest but hey...when you drive by the fuel pumps your laughing.

Pros

Lots of power, smoked the older M3's no problem.

Cons

Low end, not alot of power, no matter what you do. It is still a 4 cynlinder.

Great Car. — Great gas mileage, especially when I lived in the City back then. Must be a stick, any 4 cylinder vechiles in auto tranny is terrible. In general rule of thumb stick you have more control on the car than auto. Auto basically the car controls you. In the snow, forget it, auto tranny is the worst depending what you drive. On a little coupe like that, especially at 17, snow or not doesnt matter. LOL Invested over 10k on his car and boosted engine to 368hp with all custom engine work.

Great little car.

Cons

Low posture can make my back hurt

This Is A Fun Car — Okay acceleration with pretty good bakes and good handling. The build quality was good. Not too many rattles or anything. The car was a bit pricey for me when I bought it but wish I still had the car. It got good gas mileage and maintenance was low. This car was really fun to drive and I really put it through some hard driving conditions.

Cons

Slow

Integra — I liked it. It was a fun car to drive, easy to maintain, cheap to repair and great to look at. The automatic transmission was pretty wack though. It shifted between gears randomly and it was kinda slow. The back seat was really small, but the trunk was massive. Sound system was great, no complaints really.
