Indescribable, to say the least
Comfort: For 1998, I'd say it's quite good, and that 5-speed manual makes it quite fun. Personally, I'd modify my car a bit, but it's still quite good. Performance: 140 horsepower is more than enough to move this 2700lb sedan to 62mph in just below 9 seconds, so that's good enough for me right there. It actually almost feels even quicker than the Accord. Exterior: Very nice-looking front headlights. I love the coupe-like profile, and you can barely even tell it's an Acura/Honda from looking at it for 5 seconds without noticing badges, and that's why I like it a lot. Interior Design: I honestly don't know what to say. It's definitely way more simple than those xxxxty modern car interiors that look way too fancy for me. Value: I bought it for just $300, so that's a steal right there. Reliability: A few parts don't work, but I can easily get aftermarkets, so that's a good thing. 159,000 miles, and that little engine can definitely last another hundred thousand.
Perform routine maintenance & it will last FOREVER
DOUBLE-WISHBONE suspension front & rear, along with 4 wheel anti-lock DISC brakes...combined with FANTASTIC ENGINES make these cars sporty, economical, practical, easily maintained...& FUN TO DRIVE!!! Best when paired with a manual transmission, although still good with an automatic.
Is a fine car but its price was too much
I purchased a used 1998 acura integra with a lot of options and under 15k miles. I'm a big guy, 6'3" and big-boned, with two younger children that require car seats. There is still some room behind me with the seat backed up all of the way. The features and smart key are a nice touch. I am used to a V-6 AWD vehicle, so it has taken some time getting used to the slower acceleration in normal or ECO mode. In Sport mode, the acceleration is good. I really like the looks of this car. It just stinks you have to go to the Sport or Limited model to get dark interiors, but I'll deal with it
