The 2000 Acura Integra is the second Integra that I've owned. My first was a 1991 LS with a 5 speed. I bought it used for $6,500. Then added 50+ thousand trouble free miles and sold it for $6K. So value wise, owning a car for 3.5 years / 50K miles for $500 is a HUGE VALUE to me! By the way, all that needed replacement were the brakes, tires, oil and filters. Just the normal stuff that any car would need. I ran into the guy that I sold it too 5 years later. The odormeter had 285,000 miles logged on. And still going strong!
The 1991 Interra LS was sold so that I could buy a brand new 2000 GSR. I have 78K on her. She has been completely trouble free. Did I mention that I race? My cars see redline almost every time I drive them. It is just so much fun to drive the Acura and Honda cars. They take it, then always ask for more! They never let me down,,,,,,,,,,,EVER!
That goes for my circle track Honda Civic and roadcourse Honda CRX Si. I have won the track championship 2 times with my Honda Civic.
OK- getting back to the 2000 GSR. It's handling is nimble. Then engine is powerful (170 HP.) The brakes work quite well (I brake very late and hard.) The transmission, oh the transmission,,,,it is as smooth as butter going through the gears! The ride is perfect- not too stiff like a racecar, but firm enough to have lots of fun through the turns without needing a chiropractor! The sound system has been just right- no problem and nothing aftermarket, it just works fine. I like the sound of the engine since installing a cold air intake and exhaust systems. I can drive this car like a little old lady, but she likes it to be tached up to 8,000 RPM also. So, if you plan on just having a fun to drive, excellent value, reliable, performance little car that also gets around 28-30 miles-per-gallon, don't look any further. This is the greatest car I've ever owned hands down. I have owned about 25 cars so far. It is also great in the snow! I don't even have all season tires, and it does OK in the snow. But I do highly recommend all seasons or even snow tires if you have to drive alot in that weather. (I do use my SUV 4x4 for the heavy snows.)
Good luck and may Honda and Acura be number 1 in your book as it is in mine!
Thanks for reading.
