I don't know where to start, but here it goes:
1. I've had numerous starting problems, the car has a mind of it's own, some days it will start perfectly, others it won't.
I have replaced the battery, coil, new rotor and distributor, ignition, wiring harness costing me a fortune (honda parts are very expensive), yet the problem isn't resolved.
It seems I spend an average of 5-8k per year just on repairs.
Corrosion seems to be another serious issue with the Integra, it seems to be falling apart, considering the previous owner was a lady who kept it garaged most of the time.
The interior is dull and poorly put together, everything seems to be falling apart...
Timing belt seems to go at 50,000kms, even my wife's hyundai excel at least manages 100,000kms.
Lower controller arm decided to give way... just driving on normal tar roads, without any specific incident. I've never seen just a poorly screwed together car.
The clutch seem's excessively heavy and lazy, whilst the manual gearbox seems very "soft", certainly not the "sporty" feel it should have.
The power windows have also been another dodgy experience, with the noisy motors being replaced 5 times so far!
Oil level sensor has been replaced, yet it's still faulty and not operating properly.
Horrible fuel economy, manage only 270kms from one tank and this isn't driving it hard.
I think the quotation is correct, if you want anything from a V-tec, you need a set of ear plugs.
Also the steering pump has been replaced several times, as well as the aircondition condenser.. I mean the list of issues I've experienced with this car is endless. I'll never go near a honda again.
The car smells horrible...
Fuel filter required replacement, due to being clogged.
Brakes have failed numerous times (these aren't aftermarket brakes, but original honda ones)
Fuel filter was clogged causing the car barely to run and it was quite expensive to replace.
