Default my acura integra?

i just bought a used 94' acura with130,000 miles on it. how long will this car last me? should i need to be prepared to purchase another vehicle in a year or two? the car has been well maintained by the two previous owners, and i keep the oil changed and stuff...the only thing i wanna change is the paint (there are a few scuffs and scrapes here n there)..is it worth my money to have it painted on the outside?

I bought a 94 Integra GSR two years ago with 98,000 miles on it. I dont know which engine you have but they are all about the same it terms of reliability. I have since had the entire car custom painted along with thousands in other accessories. I did this all with the peace of mind that I am driving a Honda. They make some of the most reliable vehicles on the road and in 94 they were leaps and bounds ahead of other car manufacturers. Paint it keep up on the maintenance and you can see 300,000 plus miles. I have seen it plenty of times before. I know many people with 200,000 plus on their original honda motors and they are still going strong. In the two years I have had mine(it now has over 130,000 on it) I have had no major repairs at all. I love the car and love the reliability. Name one other car that was $19,000 new and now 14 years later still books for $6,000!!! There is a reason for that

Well Acura is made by Honda if you didnt know yet. And Honda is VERY reliable. I guess the integra can last you about 300k + miles if you take good care of it. Aka, replace the oil, worn parts etc. You wont need to buy a new vehicle ever again when you have an integra. great choice, and yes, i think paint sounds good. Try going with the OEM silver, or anyother OEM color like taffea white, championship white, supersonic blue pearl. Personally, i think the voltage blue and the blue from the GS-R looks the best. Maybe a JDM front to persay?Well great choice on the car. Hope you love your integra as much as i love mine, and Brando here. (AZNSTREETRACER.) So yea, join team-integra.net since you have an integra. OHHH YEA! To prove that integras last forever, there is an article about an itnegra who ran 608,000 orignal miles, orginal everything. 94 Integra RS.
