1995 Acura Integra 1.8L 140hp 90 torque from North America
Hard to remember...
Ya... the original clutch died at 270000km. Nothing wrong with that really.
Burns oil... ehhh, 300 000km... it's OK with me.
OK, OK, NOTHING HAS GONE WRONG.
General problem with not just Integras, but all Honda's (models older than 1998); RUST if you are not careful...
FIX THE DAMN RUST when it starts!!!
The 1.8L of the Integra is one of the best inline 4s ever made due, to its fuel efficiency and extremely strong reliability.
140 hp, but a lack of torque.
The car is VERY VERY fast (for what it is) in between 4000 and 7000rpm.
But it has NO POWER WHATSOEVER between 1500 to 3500rpm, so you are somewhat forced to shift a bit higher.
I presently own a 2002 Elantra GT, and it runs great. The Integra is faster in first and second, but the Elantra will kill it as soon as you hit 3rd due to its torque (the Elantra is very strong between 1500 to 4000rpm).
Also, the Integra with 300 000km+ starts within seconds, even at -30.
Space in the back is horrible.
Heater + marshmallows = good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
