1998 Acura Integra GSR from North America - Comments

I am 6' tall and I drive a 1996 Integra and I feel like a little kid in it because I sit so low. This guy has no idea what he is talking about. Also any exhaust is going to rust through. It is metal, and the last time I checked it is prone to corrosion. Don't hate the world because you were taken on a used car, that was not taken care of. And please if you are going to review a car try a new one so you have substantial evidence to back up your claims.

I drive a 98 GSR Integra and I love that car, and so do all my friend's. And the clutch doesn't stick at all or slip gears. My Integra is a wonderful car, and I'm 6'2" and I have plenty of room. It is very fast. Maybe a Honda isn't for you?

Clutch is fine, Visibility is the best I've ever seen in a car, exept for the back view.

I have a 98 GSR and I love it... have no trouble with it what so ever... maybe you should have looked at it more carefully and really see if it was for you... and if you don't like it sell it to me for like $1... ill buy it in a heart beat.

Somehow I think you never sat in this car and drove it.

Poor visibility -It's a hatchback how can you not see outward. Its not a cargo van!

Tricky clutch - come on, learn how to drive a stick first.

I drive a 99 Integra, and I'm very happy with it.

Don't expect the clutch to be the same as a sedan because it is not, it is designed with reliability and performance in mind. There are a lot of cars which are easier to drive, but the clutch doesn't last as long (my factory OEM clutch has 94K in it, and only slips slightly when racing due to abuse) or performs as well.

The car has limited headroom, but I haven't had any problems with fitting people.

Legroom is excellent, you may have problems with headroom if you're taller than 6 feet.

Visibility is excellent except when backing up. Blind spots are minimal.

Safety is excellent, and the engine quality and suspension quality are excellent as well. (Not many cars equipped with double-wishbone and multi-link suspension from factory.)

Overall quality is excellent. If you have any doubts, read Consumer Reports.

Hey guys!! I need to change a clutch on my 95 Integra GSR!! What would be the best flywheel? Should I get the lightest, it would be no problem?

I sure hope you didn't pay 800 dollars for a new clutch buddy? If so, you got stuck really bad.

I've had my Integra for over two years, and it drives like it's brand new.

The clutch is easy to drive.

The handling is great. I go around an S curve that turns tightly at 65, with no problems. Definitely the best car I have ever driven. And I have driven a lot of cars.

It is the easiest car to see out of. I can see everywhere out of the car, through the mirrors and the windows.

I have a friend that sits in it all the time, and he is 6ft 4in, and he doesn't even complain about the room in the car; he fits just like everyone else.
