This car is so good there are websites devoted to it. The 90-93 integra has a cult-like following for many reasons. It pretty much has it all. Performance, style, comfort, amenities and reliability. I recently purchased a '91 with 151k miles. I has the old belts changed and now the car runs better than some new cars I've driven. This is my second generation 2 Integra (I owned a '92 for six years) and I have alot of experience with this car. Some of my favorite features include the moon roof, power windows, comfortable bucket seats and cruise control. My only complaints with the interior are the lack of cupholders or center console to rest your arm on or store things in.
As far as the performance is concerned, I have no complaints. Because of this car's gearing, light weight and efficient 1.8L engine it really moves, especially on the highway. It even has a beautiful sound. Plus, with the availability of aftermarket performance parts there is no limit to the level of performance it can achieve.
I've heard the argument that this car should have been a 2-seater but I disagree. The hatchback version is compact, but the back seats come in handy for transporting people or cargo. The best part about the hatch is that you can fold the seats down which gives you tons of cargo space. I used mine to move in and out of the dorms throughout college and always made it in one trip.
Last but not least, I love the exterior styling. Some of my fav features are the long square headlights with fog lamps, rear spoiler (optional), double tipped exhaust and wedge-like body style. The styling is classic and has stood the test of time. Compare it to a new RSX and you will see how it evolved naturally but remained true to form (the RSX is still known as an Integra in Japan).
Pick one of these cars up if you find one in good condition. Mine is in great mechanical shape and fair exterior shape and I picked it up for a mere $1200, the deal of a lifetime as far as I'm concerned.
