Great car, fast and very cheap to maintain... Should have kept it. A rare B17.

1992 Acura Integra LS 1.8 from North America


Only wish I had gotten one sooner


Main fuel relay went out (common).

Leaks in water under dash in passenger side during heavy rain (common).

Drivers side control switch for e-windows went bad (was on the way out when I got the car), as well as the switch for the sunroof.

Rear hatch struts are worn out, and don't hold it up in the cooler months - no problems in the summer though (odd, but whatever, it's not that big a deal, I just use a piece of wood to prop it open).

General Comments:

This has been (and still is) a great car.

The only real problem I have had with it was when the fuel relay went out, it would periodically not start. After doing some online research and having three people look at it and not be able to figure out what the problem was (since there were a few possibilities), I finally took it to the dealer and of course they couldn't figure it out either, because it always started for them. But by this point I had already fixed / replaced all the other possible "known" problems with it, so I just told them to go ahead and replace the relay and voila, it's run perfectly ever since.

The interior in this car is awesome, no rips or tears in the fabric, no cracks in the dash etc. (though I do armor-all it every summer - but it was 12 years old when I bought it so...) the only prob. is a little sun fading on the top of the rear seats and the door panels - I put a black beach towel over the rear seats and seat covers on the front, can't do much about the door panels though :^(

I used to own a '68 Dodge Coronet with a 440 c.i. engine, so I have a pretty good idea of what fast is, and was really surprised at the get up n go that comes from this little 4 banger (it's not even the GS-R), and it doesn't consume any where near the same amount of gas. Though I would be lying if I said I didn't miss my Coronet - but I sure as hell don't miss feeding it every 3-4 days, my Integra only gets fed every 2 weeks on average.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Great review. Couldn't have said anything else better. Great little car. I have the 1.8 LS manual too.

I had a 91 LS. I loved the car, but I was ripped off by the seller. It was fast, reliable and LOUD. I had the same problem with the window (shorted wire). I miss the car, and because of it I will only buy Acura. Too bad a burnt valve spoiled my Integra experience. I would buy another one.

I just bought a 1992 Acura Integra for my first car. I drove it once on the road with my dad and I got a little crazy on straight stretches just to see how much punch it had. For a completely stock motor with the head gasket going on it, I was amazed with its performance, and torque. Hoping to upgrade it as I am absolutely sure I will have this car for a long while. Fell in love with it in the first 5 minutes of owning it.

I am writing on behalf of a dear friend who owns a 92 Integra LS. She wants to sell it but we have no idea what to ask for it. It's been sitting for the last 13 years, with less than 80,000 kms on it. The interior is mint, a little rust in front of the rear wheel wells, needs 4 new tires and battery and fluids changed.

Has anyone got an idea what I should ask?

If it's as good as you say, then around 4000$.

Great comments on the Acura

I have a Acura Integra 92 with 140,000 miles - it runs great for an old gal!!
