Hmmm, with the Integra aftermarket being as big as it is and knowing how easy it is to turbo the B18 I'd have to strongly disagree. How many turbo 420a's have you even seen running around? Me, none.

Anyways, Neons with no problems? I guess you must be the only Neon owner you know of.

This according to JD POWER (all LONG TERM rankings):

Mechanical Reliability :
'98 Neon - 2 out of 5
'98 Integra - 5 out of 5

Feature and Accessory Dependability :
'98 Neon - 3 out of 5 (wow it's actually just average in one category)
'98 Integra - 4 out of 5 (Damn the Integra is better again!)

Body and Interior Dependability :
'98 Neon - 2 out of 5
'98 Integra - 4 out of 5

Sure the Integra didnt have a 135mm spare tire on the front?

the JD rankings arent interpted that way
2 stars= among the rest
3 stars= does not really stand out
4 stars= better than most
5 stars= among the best

so it doesnt mean that 2 stars is crap
it means that its just like every other car.
dont tell me that the integra has no problems either
maybe not as many as the neon, but notihng is perfect

let me guess no suspension tuning for the larger unsprung weight and larger wheel/tire radius.

"Among the rest" Doesnt mean anything good. "Among the rest" Includes such vehicles like the Town and Country... And we all know here from all our horror T & C stories how well they are on reliability.

You're right the Integra isnt perfect either, but statistically speaking it's "among the best" and has a quarter of amount of the problems the Neon has.

ok lets face it. neons are junk, throw away cars. the integra is a very well built car. i work at a salvage yard and get calls everyday for neon parts (engines, trannys) and in the 2 years ive been working here i have never gotten a call on anything other than distributors and body parts. that alone tells me that the integra is the better of the 2.

i love my american cars but in this case i would take the import over the "peon" any day of the week

do you really think i will be driving this neon for the rest of my life
i just got something bhecause i dindt feel like walking i paid 2000 for it and put some small touches on it here and there. i already got my next car in my garage anytihng happens with the neon i just sell it on ebay
i can give a crap less if the integra is better i drove it and i did not like it. maybe the specific car wasnt good, but i dindt like it. it just dindt appeal to me. and it was 6000 my neon was 2000. that left me with extra money to get sometihng else, and i did. saved up and my next car in line is a 2000 Acura 3.2 TL. lets face it im 17, and that pretty damn good. i was 16 when i got the neon and i still dont care its a fun ride for me and anyone who disagres can go and drive what they like.

I personally prefer the sleek aggressive looks of the Integra over the bubbly shape of the Neon.

Well if you don't give a damn, then stop arguing
