1996 Honda Integra Sedan
Stock Number: 4995
The Honda Integra is one stellar JDM import. Known for its fantastic build quality, lively chassis, and fuel efficiency examples like this 1996 single-cam make wonderful daily driven cars. Finished in a classic Cypress Green Pearl (G-82P) and offered with a mere 34K verified miles, the body is in good shape aside from some normal dings and chips. This unmolested example has room for five, has been recently maintained, and legally imported. As a commuter, weekend toy, or platform to modify, this DB6 is a bonafide Japanese Classic.
The cabin is in above-average shape. It's clear the car was cared for in Japan as evidenced by its current condition. Aside from an Addzest radio, the interior is just as it left the factory. The low-lying dash is in great shape and lacks any cracks or distortion. A small digital clock is front and center and the standard automatic climate control is easy to use and currently blows cold A/C. The soft gray textured cloth seats lack any major imperfections such as rips, stains, or tears. They match the door cards which are also looking good. The rear is surprisingly roomy and rear occupants have a decent amount of shoulder room as well. Power windows, locks, and mirrors are standard and all work as they should. The carpets are clean as is the headliner and there is additional storage in a large front glovebox and a center console between the driver and passenger. If we had to critique anything, we did want to note that the aftermarket radio screen is heavily pixelated but that's not uncommon for LCDs of this age. Regardless of its condition, you'd still likely want to swap it out for something more US-friendly in the first place.
Arguably Honda's most prolific drivetrains came out of this era. The brand commitment to quality, reliability, and performance was on full display in the mid-1990s. This 1.6L ZC is fresh off an oil and filter service and turns over quickly thanks to a new 12V battery. Mated to an automatic transmission, the engine is surprisingly peppy and frugal as well. The auto box rows through the gears just fine and powers the front wheels. A new set of axels have been installed by our trained technicians and has shored up the driveline nicely. The chassis gives plenty of feedback and is both incredibly fun and lively. The suspension is confident and can take the rigors of daily abuse if you were looking to daily drive this sedan. The brakes feel good as well and the power steering is light and easy to manipulate. The wheels are all wrapped in new rubber at all four corners. They quiet the ride down noticeably and should deliver tens of thousands of miles or year-round grip.
