99 Acura Integra with 140k.
I am wondering if its a good idea to drive say 450 mile trip (one way)? Of course I will stop for coffee.
The question came in my mind because I hold the opinion that after a similar trip on my 87 Acura Integra with 100k, things started falling apart! In this trip I had 4 adults avg weighing around 125lb + bags. About 4 day trip. Distance 2 x 850 miles. AC was on as it was a summer trip. Its a 1.6 liter engine.
This 99 Integra, at 60mph, I feel engine is beginning to work hard without any other loads. I want to use the car but trying to figure the limits given its age. Its a 1.8 liter engine. Original suspension. Currently we put 5k miles a year.
