Default Is Integra '02 worth getting?

Is Integra '02 worth getting as a used car? Planning to get this with auto but im not quite sure how much the maintenance with this car will be??? Is it also worth purchasing a used one with 100k on it?I've heard its not that great with automatic transmission (boring for some other people but is there any bad side in auto trans?) However thought of triptronic will bring out a bit of fun in both sides of trannys.I travel an hour to work and back and thought this mite help a bit in traffic. Any suggestion appreciated while as i dont kno much about the experience of this car. Let me know whats your thought...By the way, i live in Australia

Acura is know for quality however check your insurance agent for cost to insure your 6 year old car. 2.0 VTEC honda motors are stolen a lot. 40 to 60 miles each way I would look into your credit and buy a new car because you need to have a reliable safe car to be at work everyday.

I think the word is MIGHT, not mite...a mite is a small animal...It would be a 2001 Integra...they made them till 2000, for the 2001 yr and then they made the RSX(RSX-S) in 2001 for the 2002 yr.People have been driving Integra's since 1986 when they first came out. ( I know, I owned a first model yr out) Some of them are STILL on the road...not to mention all the later years of them. If they weren't reliable, we wouldn't be in this forum and you wouldn't be asking.Autos are fine, don't manually shift them (they tend to die if you do...)100,000 miles on a Honda or Acura is NOTHING. We sold an Accord with 195,000 in 2003, and it's still on the road, I see it.I sold my Integra (a mistake at the time) with 190,000 miles on it...it still got 28 mpg.If you take care of the car, fresh oil, good tires and don't beat on the tranny it will last you 300,000 or more...if you can't afford the maintence or gas, don't buy the vehicle. Since we don't know where you live we can't tell you how much it's gonna cost you to drive it...so call around and ask Honda/Acura...they have all the answers.

ok, I'll cut the crap you are getting... its a 1.8L NON-VTEC, coming in the 96-00 integra ls,gs modelsthe only 2.0 vtec in that year range is the H22a found in preludes... so post 1 = failpost 2 = irrelevant except the fact that the integra stopped production on 00/01ishthe integra is a great car and the ls is a very reliable motor, mostly due to the fact it can't be slammed on at high rpm like the b16(99-00 civic si) or b18(96-00 integra GS-R) which come with vtec and rev to about 9k at redlline...the ls is great on gas, and has enough power with your light integra to make it fun, even with an auto trans... and the best thing about an ls... you ready... PARTS ARE CHEAP!!!!everyone swaps out their ls for a b16 or b18 so there are tons of them around.. you could pick up a complete ls motor for about 300 bucks... plus another 200 bucks for the manual transI would get it if there where a reasonable price

Hi,I see that you say that you live in Australia. Here in the states the Integra's name was changed to an RSX and is not listed as a Honda but as an Acura (Honda's luxury line in the States). I work in the parts dept at an Acura Dealership and the RSX is the car that comes in with the least amount of problems. I love the car because it is good on gas and fun to drive. Here, the car comes with an immobilization system that keeps someone from breaking the ignition and starting another way. The car will not start without the key that is programmed to the the module for the ignition. It is really a good car.As for having 100kilos? which is about 62,000 miles. I don't know which one you use there. Spark plugs don't get changed until 100,000 miles and the timing belt has been changed to a chain which lasts alot longer.As for the triptronic ... I think that is a guy thing (boys think it is brilliant :-) I could really care less.I drive a 93 Civic DX with 177,000 miles and still gets 35 mpg, so I will not be trading it in any time soon, but if I were, the RSX/Integra would be one of my top choices.Just my opinion ... I hope this helps.IIvto the guy under me... thanks :-)
