Faults:

I can't recall the mileage during the vehicles fault.

But here are the lists of issues:

Coil in the distributor burned.

All four struts.

Front tie rods.

Brake pads.

Front rotors warped.

Master cylinder.

Windshield wipers.

Tires.

Floor mats.

Head gasket rings.

Front calipers.

Gas line for gas tank.

Spark plugs.

Spark plug wires.

Gas filter.

Oil filter.

ABS light stays lit.

Air condition compressor.

Radiator.

Front right axle.

General Comments:

The car is very quick.

On a take off I beat a 2003 Lexus GS 400. Then of course the Lexus with its over 200 horses passed me by.

Car handles great on turns. Hard cornering is not bad at all. This car is by far in comparison to my other friend's car the best on gas mileage I squeeze 28 miles in city and 33 miles on highway. Car comes with a sport-shift, (S3) (S4). The only problem is that when this car breaks down, when part is replaced another issue seems to arise soon after. This car is a good four door sedan for a college type student such as I.

Summary:

The car is neat to drive, but the maintenance costs are overwhelming

Faults:

The transmission began slipping at the 261,000 mile mark.

The transmission was replaced at 261,150 miles.

The cable for the gear shift went out.

The driver power window motor went out.

The distributor had to be replaced.

The left front wheel bearing went out.

The carrier bearing went out.

The power antenna is faulty.

The car leaks if it rains hard.

The driver seat is badly worn.

The paint had almost completely faded.

General Comments:

This car was bought because of its expected good reliability.

Due to the excessive repair costs, purchasing this car has proven to be a bad move.

The power windows, door locks, power mirrors, cruise control, and power antenna although faulty, still works.

I bought this car for my daughter to provide transportation until she finishes college.

The cost of repairs have now exceeded what we originally paid for the car.

Automatic trans with all the bells and whistles that's asking for trouble. The most reliable cars are mechanical stay away from the electronics and gadgets.

General Comments:

I'm going to miss this car. I bought it straight off the dealer's lot in January 1990 and just wrecked it after almost 15 years and over 225,000 miles. All of them put on by myself. From minus 25 below in Yellowstone to over 130 degrees in the Mohave desert. This car has started and drove through the most hostile environments in the USA. Thank you Acura for a great friend and having me walk away from a accident with just a bruise on my leg.
