1994 Acura Integra LS 1.8L from North America
Even over 150k miles, still one of the most sporty and dependable cars on the road
I replaced the radiator at 155k after a crack and radiator fluid leakage due to a crack. The radiator I replaced was the factory-installed original.
The car is rusting above the wheel-well.
The oil pan gasket is leaking a little, but not much.
One of the pins in the rear brakes was essentially welded in one position, restricting its free movement and caused a sound that lasted for a few seconds when the brakes were applied during city driving. This was fixed with the combination of pulling the pin up and down and using WD-40 to free the rust up. Problem occurred at approximately 157000 miles.
Replaced rear brake pads at the same time rear pin was fixed.
I purchased my 94 Integra with 144000 miles three years ago.
The car is the two door model.
I am now approaching the 160000 mile mark.
Rear seat may be small for some.
I love this car! I look forward to taking the car to 200000+ miles.
I am look forward to using it to commute to the university this fall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Update: just hit 170k miles; changed the tires and changed the oil. I have had no problems since writing my original review (see above). I can't say enough about how great this car has been.

I have an acura integra and I have over 240,000 miles on it and it still runs great this is a worthy car to own.

My '94 Integra (we bought for our three kids) is just a couple of hundred miles shy of 150K. Unfortunately, my oldest son (now a 19 year old college freshman) dented the rear quarter panel shortly after he started driving. I am now considering investing a few hundred of dollars to fix the dent and a few other small dings and see if I can coax it to 200K.
