1993 Acura Vigor GS 2.5L from North America
Great performance for the money. Great on gas
I have a 1993 Vigor and love it. My major problem with the car came when the oil seal on the secondary transmission shaft failed for the second time. First at 30,000, then at 60,000. At that point I had the dealer replace the transmission at not cost to me. I was told the secondary shaft must have been warped.
I now have over 100,000 miles with only small oil leak coming from behind distributor, oil coming from a poor transmission service by the dealer
Missing engine mount bolt.
At 90,000 had all belts changed and engine decarbonized by dealer $1,000.
Changed distributor and rotor today as regular maintenance.
My next problems will be trying to come up with $50,000 dollars to replace a $30,000 dollar car that drives and performs like a $50,000 or $60,000 dollar car.
Strongly recommend the Firestone Firehawk SH30 tires. I would rate these tires as the best touring tire ever made. Makes the Vigor glide to your destination and ride like a dream.
Fantastic car. Would not be able to replace it for anything less than $50,000 today.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It was great to read your comments! I also have a '93 Vig GS with the standard transmission and I love it. I have about 70,000 miles on mine and nothing has gone seriously wrong with it. I make certain that I do the maintenance regularly and treat the little beast like a baby (well, once in a while I might blow out the carbon!). I bought a set of premium Toyo touring tires and really like these. I've ordered a performance muffler for it as it is time to replace the original. I am also looking at installing a cold-air intake system as well. The car looks and acts like new and I certainly do agree with you that it would be very difficult to replace this classic for under $50k.
Thanks again. Jim.
