1992 Acura Integra LS 1.4 from North America


Great commuter car


Replaced stock stereo.

CV boots replaced.

Both front axles replaced.

Spark plugs.

New tires at 150k.

Passenger side window is slow to go back up (never replaced)

Disabled automatic antenna because it got bent and would no longer go down.

Spilled lots of drinks due to no cup holders.

General Comments:

This is a great car. It has been very reliable and never let me down.

It still gets between 27 and 30 miles/gal.

I bought it used at 105k miles for $7k in 2000. It was well worth the money.

1992 Acura Integra GS 1.8 from North America


I'd buy a new RSX, but I simply can't bear to part with my baby


Nothing has gone wrong with this car outside of normal wear and tear items.. eg: brakes, tires, tune ups.

I have also replaced the water pump once, alternator once,complete exhaust system front to back once, timing belt every 96000 (as recommended by Honda) still on the original starter and clutch this car is incredible.

General Comments:

Rock solid, super reliable, drop dead sexy in black.

Handles like its on rails and has amazing top end for a smaller car.

Interior fit and finish rival my fathers 7 series beamer as is the case with exterior body panels as well way to go Acura.

1992 Acura Integra GS-R 1.7 from North America


Acura GS-R, original and still the real ZOOM car!!!


Nothing major or out of the ordinary has gone. Clutch didn't go until 184K. A/C use in hot stop-n-go traffic causes the engine temp to hit max and then overflow the reservoir. Have had it checked, but Acura mechanic can't figure out why it's happening. Normal driving with A/C on in the hottest of weather is fine however.

General Comments:

You can't beat this little car. It's got great fuel mileage still (27/31) and nothing major has ever broke. Do your maintenance when required and it'll run forever.

Don't put junk tires on the car. I've had the original Michelin, I've tried Yokohama, and are now on Dunlops. The Yokohama were the worse for rain.

1992 Acura Integra GS 1.7L from North America


A quick, fast, reliable vehicle for a low price!


Ciggarette Lighter has a super launching spring. It will go clear past the back seat when ready.LOL. Tailpipe completely rusting off at 170,000. Little rust damage around rear wheel well.3rd gear is a little grindy at 7,000 rpm. Cheap plastic overflow hose on radiator broke off. Comes with 14" rims.

General Comments:

I bought this car without a motor for $1000 in 2003 at 170,000 miles. No other problems just needed a motor. I bought a used 1992 Acura Integra motor for $250 dollars. It had 140,000 miles on it. I dropped the motor in and she has run like a dream ever since.0-60 in 7 sec, handles like a dream. Will hit 120mph with no problems.

Performance, style and economy -- va-va-voom!


Only routine items on a high mileage vehicle -- in the order that they happened to occur.

Only thing I never replaced was the ABS sensor -- which just meant the light stayed on in the instrument cluster. Never really liked it when the car could be brought to a dead stop on the gears alone in the snow -- driven just right.

The cigarette lighter is always fun around the un-initiated -- in its younger days, it actually made its way clear to the back of the car. Just a wacky fit-and-spring job I suppose. Great fun on the freeway at 70mph (...or faster) though!

Acura owners (of all types) everywhere tell me that the power antenna design team should be lined up and summarily executed. I found however, that the radio worked just as well without an antenna as it did with one. So maybe we can leave the poor guys alone.

General Comments:

In all the time I have owned the car she has never required more than $300 worth of maintenance in a year, or (unless on road trips -- 32 miles/gallon, measured) more than $40 worth of gas per month.

Bought mine from the original owner (look for these -- there are still some around) exactly 7 years to the date he drove it off the showroom floor. Fully loaded 5-speed. $5'000. Never looked back.

In the first three gears, there is almost nothing on the road this car has not tried on for size and held its own or better against. It's just FFFFUN!! (After third gear, be cognizant of the number of cylinders and displacement you are up against -- if the road isn't straight, be advised, you are still in it!)

Do not buy this car unless you are ready, willing and able to keep her centered between 3'750 - 6'000 rpm on the tachometer. Do not be afraid. There is a gift of speed from 4'000 rpm and up-wards. And this was not even the v-tec motor!

Original owner advised me to think about replacing the clutch as he had not seen fit to do so since he bought the car in '92. Drove her myself, and did not see fit to do so either. She is still on the same damn clutch she left the factory in Japan with -- 201000 miles ago!

Mine could feel a bit a like a skateboard at times -- this is no Lexus. But h-a-l-l-e-lu-j-a-h!!! Because most Lexi can't do what this car can do in most any conditions, on any roads. For handling, I hope like hell I will eventually be able to find something that handled like this one did (and "yes" -- I have driven the vaunted 3 series, and I beg to differ only in direct comparison with an Integra). I loved the weight in the wheel. And barring a single lane road, I only ever made U-turns -- rarely obliged to K-turn with the turning circle on this machine.

This was also, in my humble opinion, the best looking of the Integra line.

Drive one. Buy one. Love one.
