"I'm entering my 30s and have owned about 4 cars in my lifetime. This is by far my most favorite out of the ones I've owned (mostly Japanese). Many people say the Integra is just a Civic with different lights and badges. I'd beg to differ. I appreciate the subtle differences with the Acura GS like leather seats. The 1.8 liter engine is a little more responsive than the civic's 1.6 of the era. I've driven civics and they are a little more narrow and cheaper. Don't get me wrong, I love Honda's, I don't mean to bash the civic...great car, but the Integra just has a little more premium feel. You'll discover it once you own one. Some of the drawbacks I'd have to say is road noise. With the Integra you'll get no window frame on the doors, which is what I believe to make the difference in dampening road noise, especially on hwy. mine is a 99, drives like a champ, doesn't leak or burn and the trans is still good, slipping a little perhaps. I drive the 4 door and it still feels and looks sporty, compared to the small family feel of the four door civic. If you're big on quality Honda engines, premium interior feel, and reliable parts that won't fail prematurely choose an Integra. Choose any Acura for that matter."
"The Integra is a stylish, reliable and efficient vehicle. The only negative aspect of the car is comfort. The vehicle has a low profile, which seats the driver and passenger in a reclined position. There is also a significant amount of road noise. If you can tolerate these minor comfort issues, this is an excellent vehicle with great gas mileage."
