Bought the car with non working A/C.
ABS is not working, bad accumulator pump.
Bad body repair to damaged right rear quarter panel, leaks water past the right tail light.
Left front fender is damaged.
CV shaft boot torn on driver's side.
Engine head had a nasty noise coming from it when the engine was running.
Needed a tune up and oil change when I bought it.
At 196000 miles, the timing belt broke while I was driving home from a friend's place. Replaced the belt, and the car runs amazing, and thankfully no bent valves.
Normal high mileage Honda B-series engine oil leaks.
The HAVOC. controls only work when they want to. I know how to fix that, just need time.
Main fuel relay switch went bad, minor thing that kept the car from starting sometimes when the car was warm or in hot weather. Easy fix.
Rear defog is messed up, only about a 4 inch section of the window thaws/defogs.
Well, I can say that yes, these cars do have their little issues, and that those issues add character to the car the way I see it. The HAVOC controls on the LS and GS/GS-R models can be a pain in the neck, and the main fuel relay goes bad because of old age and heat, but this is simply an amazing little car. I bought mine for $800.00, and during its 15 years of life, it has been abused, badly.
I am in the process of getting my car back into good shape, because I have fallen in love with the 1990-1993 Acura Integras since the first one I drove just 4 years ago. They have great performance stock, and with just minor mods (my car has an exhaust, nothing extreme like the "Racing" exhaust most people tend to use, and a cold air intake) they can be very, very fun.
I do have a few leaks in my car, but because I am part of a website dedicated to the 1990-1993, I know how to fix those, and I know many other little tips and tricks to fix anything that goes wrong with the car.
If you have an Integra, be it 4 door or hatchback, go to www.g2ic.com and look around; they have a lot of things there to help find parts and more. If you have any questions about the Integra as well, and don't want to have to visit a website and search around, drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Just put in the subject: Integra help.
