I'd buy another if Acura made it
These cars were known for wearing out mufflers. The condensation caused muffler rust. Getting a lifetime warranty on an after market or OEM muffler is the best solution for this car. I had replaced the muffler twice since owning it.
The CV boot rubber cracked and needed replacement. This is common on all front wheel drive cars.
I had owned a new 1988 Integra RS until it was rear ended in 2001. That car had 230000 KM. The car ran flawlessly. Regular maintenance kept it going and going!
When I purchased my 1989 Integra LS, it ran just as well. The better interior and sunroof was very nice. The drive was the same as the 1988.
The 1988 and 1989 Integra model were the best in my opinion. They were reliable, low maintenance, and so much fun to drive. The manual 5 speed was buttery smooth. The engine was responsive and quick. This car cornered precisely. Parallel parking was easy.
If you ever come across this car in decent condition, don't hesitate to buy it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
