Summary:

Great car for the money, drives like it's brand new

Faults:

Power antenna broke.

General Comments:

Handles great, quick.

Stock Suspension is way too tight, very rough ride.

Great on gas.

I personally think it's a chick car, I let my girl drive it and I'll stick to my 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88.

219000 miles and drives like it's new.

Previous carGMC beretta

Summary:

One of the most reliable cars on the road

Faults:

Not much... routine maintenace...t-belt, water pump... wheel bearings all the way around...that's about it!!!

General Comments:

The most reliable car I have ever owned... left me stranded once, at 330km...ignitor let go. Replaced the distributor and it fired right up.

The only reason I got rid of it was body rot... right through the frame on both rear quarters. Brake lines and gas lines were gone as well...can't expect more than 300k in harsh Canadian climate.

Comfortable car.. good on gas... good looking machine... handled excellent in the summer, not so great in the winter even with good winter tires.

2 friends of mine have the same car... I had the 95, the others have 96s...330km on mine, 350k and 410k on the others... that speaks volumes on the longevity of these cars.

Previous carMazda Protege

Summary:

It'll last 20 years or more!

Faults:

2 Upper Ball joint, 2outer tie rods end, 2 disc and pads,1 rear driver side caliper, all bushings in the back. I would strongly recommend everyone to change their bushings for polyurethane from energy suspension. These bushing will last forever (no kidding). And the clutch is still stock and was never replaced, it'll die soon.

General Comments:

So far, after 1000$CAN on this car, it's running good, the engine is fine, the transmission is OK. everything else is perfect, I would recommend that car for small people with lower back problems.

Summary:

Piece of crap

Faults:

Shocks and springs blew.

Strut mounts shot.

Motor blew at 200 000.

Clutch bearings went.

Gets broken into a lot.

Body dents easily n rusts easily, Very cheap metal.

Sensors are crap.

Design to mount an after market deck is crap.

Bearings go too fast.

CV shafts blow when you lower the car.

All ball joints etc blow when you lower the car.

Stock manifolds rust through.

The rubber for the window to guide on, falls off.

Rear calipers seize too easily.

E brake cables broke.

Fuel lines and brake lines rusted through causing major problems.

General Comments:

Don't buy these cars used, people beat the crap out of them and don't truly maintain the cars.

I bought mine from a mechanic shop. And since I've owned it I've spent 27000$ in repairs, having to paint the car because of rust.. although I did do some custom modifications since everything that was stock broke!!

Maybe I was just unlucky. But I owned a Civic before my Integra.. And all I can say is. I am never buying a Honda/Acura Product Again. You have to be rich to afford the insurance, the cost of repairs, and the constant threat of theft due to punk kids.

The stock seats are great, and the acceleration of the car is awesome for a 142HP motor. Overall. I loved the car, but hate the fact I lost so much money on it. But it was fun to drive when it wasn't in the shop getting fixed. I'll miss it.

Let's see... 200k and problems and probably not maintained. And why put 27k in repairs into something this old? And why blame honda for users lack of care?

Because I'm not the only one with the same problems.

Uhhhh, I have a 95 LS Integra, and the thing is by far the best car I've ever owned. The thing is absolutely amazing. I've spent about 150 bucks on it in the 5 years I've owned it on a timing belt. It's got over 200,000 miles and it leaks no oil. It will probably run for at least 300k.

What this guy is talking about? Unless you purposely messed with the engine, how you could say half that stuff?

And the stuff you complain about is ridiculous, "it get brokens into a lot," uhh how exactly is that the cars fault, and you said "not very easy to put in an after market CV deck"; that's not a good reason to call a car a piece of crap.

Go to any review, and this car is a "BEST BUY" used, so that must mean something.
