2001 Acura Integra Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
The front-drive Integra sedan, whose design dates to the 1994 model year, returns unchanged for its final season in this form. Acura introduced a new Integra at the Detroit auto show in January, and expectations are that the 2002 model will come only as a coupe. Like the current model, the new Integra will be based on the new design for the Honda Civic. Acura is the luxury brand of Honda.

In addition to the compact-size sedan, Integra comes as a sporty hatchback coupe that is profiled in the sports car section.



Exterior
The Integra sedan rides a 103-inch wheelbase and is 178 inches long — a few inches longer than the Honda Civic or Ford Focus sedans.

A standard power glass moonroof opens above the roof so it doesn’t reduce interior headroom. Acura says the integrated bumpers can sustain a 5-mph crash without damage.



Interior
A full complement of comfort and convenience features are standard on all models, including air conditioning, a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and power locks and windows.

Leather upholstery is standard on the GS and GS-R models, and all Integra sedans have a one-piece rear seatback that folds for additional cargo space.



Under the Hood
Two 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines are available in the Integra sedan. LS and GS models use a 140-horsepower version that teams with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The GS-R has a 170-hp engine with variable-valve technology and comes only with a five-speed m...

Driving Impressions
Acura may be a luxury brand, but the Integra is more of a sporty compact than a luxury sedan, providing athletic handling and a firm ride. Both four-cylinder engines rev like crazy but don’t produce much power at low speeds. If you prefer an automatic transmission, be prepared for a lot of foot-to-the-floor driving to keep up with brisk-moving traffic.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
