My Most Fun Car — This car was as well made as all but my Audi. The Audi was abnormally smooth for it's age. Otherwise, this car was the best. It too was a manual transmission and I think it's one of the better looking cars of the late '90's. Mine was this same color. Acura calls it "Stealth Grey" but I think it's more of an eggplant color. The 1.8L 4cyl was pretty strong for the time and I put in a cold air intake that extended to just inside the front passenger wheel, which gave it a little more punch. Ran this one to about 140,000 miles before selling it.

clean, low mileage, good price

automatic!!!

Teggy — The biggest problem with my car that i dislike is that it is automatic. The car performs ok for 4 cylinder but could be better. I got a good price on it for only having 50k on it so the cost wasnt bad. The exterior is clean along with the interior. It gets good enough gas mileage and is boring to drive.

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)

lightweight, loud, fun to drive, lasts forever.

Not much space inside. not for the tall people.

Solid Fucking Car — First off you gotta be a honda fan that likes to mod. Better off finding a GSR or Type R version of the integra, it puts out a lot more horsepower and torque than the LS. Insurance can be high. It gets amazing gas mileage, if oil os changed a lot and engine is maintained. FIND THE TYPE R.

My Only Child Xd — For the most part she's run really well, I've had to pre-emptively replace alot of parts, for an 11 year old car only having one minor part break on me is really not too bad!

Fun, Economical, Everyday Drivable — Really great car. Sounds nice with AEM short Ram intake on it. brake pedal feel was much improved after Brembo slotted rotors were added.

It's An Acura... — Well being that I have owned a numerous amount of Honda's, I personally feel this vintage of Acura was a good year. Excellent platform car for someone that is looking for a solid daily driver all the way to building it up a little for a track/auto cross car. Honda's are known for lously power unless you able to get a DOHC Vtec model GSR. But then you lose what Honda's lack more, torque. I was looking for a car that was capable of giving me the handling I was looking for and decent power. Not going to win and 1/4 times with this bad boy, but it does get out of it's own way...
