1989 Acura Integra RS 1.6 DOHC from North America
Surprisingly fast, and great handling
These cars are very reliable when taken care of.
The first problem I had when I got this car, was that after a few months, the muffler rusted out (which is fine for the original muffler) so we got a OEM replacement no problem.
The most major problem is the manual tranny took a crap, and right now I am getting it replaced, but this is mostly my fault due to speed shifting and racing; can't help it, this thing's quick LOL.
Another problem that is common with the 80's Hondas/Acuras, is the main relay; over time the solder joints on it will develop small cracks, and cause a no start when hot out, but to fix this you just get a soldering iron and remelt the solder on the connections.
Those are the only problems I've ever had.
I love this car!
It's handling is surprisingly very good; my friends are shocked when I take tight turns fast at how well it corners.
The engine is very quick for just a 1.6; it has over 250,000 miles and still runs very strong. I recently put a cold air intake on it, which I highly recommend; it adds acceleration and sounds awesome!!!
Sadly I am selling her soon; I've wanted a Honda Prelude 92-96 for a while, and just want something newer, plus can't argue with the 2.2 VTEC LOL.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
