Summary:

Ultimate high performance bargain

Faults:

When I first got the car, the dealer could not fix the engine temperature problem. Every time I go downhill on a highway, the engine temperature goes towards the red zone. On surface street, it was fine, even if I had the A/C on. When I finally took it to my personal mechanic, he said that someone had installed the thermostat in the reverse position, he immediately replaced it with a new one in the correct position, and the problem is gone ever since. I have driven the car in the desert on hot summer days with A/C after the repair, the engine temperature never when beyond normal.

General Comments:

Car handles great. I have upgraded to a set of lighter 15 inch custom wheels with 195/55 R15 tires, it rides / turns great. I had the car up to its top speed of 135mph on track, it glues to the ground. It is the ultimate sports car if you are shopping on a budget. It even fits two bikes inside the car, the rear seats folds down. If you are buying a used one, make sure to ask the mechanic to replace all the belts and hoses, so you won't have to worry about it for many years to come.

I have a newly acquired 87 acura integra ls, equipped with the standard 1.6 liter, that does the exact same thing- Idles high, fluctuating from 2500-2700 rpm, for a few minutes, then slowly decreasing to about 1000 rpm. I am hoping that a simple PCV Valve replacement/ cleaning will REMEDY this, however I am by no means certain as to what to do. Any feedback, comments, or advice is appreciated :D.

I have a 1994 Acura Integra RS. It has over 400,000 km's on it. It started to idle up and down, just as you described. I thought it was a sensor, but there wasn't a code or check engine light to be seen. I took it apart to do a routine timing belt replacement and I adjusted the valve clearances and it has idled normally ever since (three months, 9,000 kms ago). It's a simple fix and you are supposed to do it every 50,000km or so. I hope this helps!

Summary:

A great car, but a little fragile here and there..

Faults:

72000 miles: I had brakes replaced, front and back: $400.

80000 miles: Dented rear quarter panel with my rear while leaning on the car. I weigh 150 lbs.

85000 miles: New timing belt, tuning and water pump, and additional brake work: $750.

93000 miles: With vehicle five years old, I replaced the factory plastic radiator with aftermarket metal part. Estimate by a shop was $450+. Cost for an OEM (Nippendenso) radiator with plastic parts was $200+. The metal aftermarket cost around $120.

105000: ABS system failure. The Accumulator (a part that never fails) failed. Modulator (I think it feeds into the accumulator) also bad. Factory replacement parts cost over $950. Total repair cost $1350. I've heard from another Integra owner who had the same problem. He investigated a junkyard part, but heard that reliability was a problem and labor cost too high to justify the risk.

72000-115000 miles: Occasional soft shift from 2nd to third. Could be going soon...

115000: Brakes due for more work. I will learn how to do them myself.

General Comments:

Good points:

Super handling and decent performance.

Excellent mileage: Once got 37mpg for an entire tank with a full load and the AC running.

Super cargo handling: the hatchback holds more than most full-sized car trunks.

Good reliability: I think the motor will last forever and the transmission has performed acceptably, given its age, mileage, and stop-and-go traffic.

Bad points:

Road noise, thin sheet metal, braking system.

My worst gripe is the plastic radiator. One would think Honda would realize heat, cold, and vibration are good ways to crack plastic.
