I've had a '90 Integra RS stick shift since '98. It's starting to look a little worn. Seats and paint fading, but I can't bring myself to sell it because the engine is holding up so well. A little more than 3 years ago I replaced the timing belt for the second time and I haven’t had to do anything but replace fluids and spark plugs since. Previous to that I did have to do a few jobs on it, but nothing out of the scope of what you’d expect from a used car.
That said, I think I should point out the minor negatives for those considering this car.
- The windows don't seal. On the highway you'll hear a rushing noise the whole time. This isn't due to age. It's always had this problem.
- The seats lack lumbar and can be a little uncomfortable on long trips.
- The back bucket seat makes it practical for only two people.
- No cup holders, but if you're buying a car this age I suspect you can build your own.
- Apparently fairly easy to break into for those who know the trick.
- Keep an eye out for drive axel boot tears. They seem to be particularly vulnerable. If you catch them in time you won’t have to pay for a whole drive axel.
