Common Problems


 Share

Recommended Posts

Well im looking to buy a IS200 or even buy back a Altezza RS200 in half yrs time, half yr earlier than expected(thats if i dont find a lowish mileage DC2 Integra Type R).

Is there any other common problems i should know of with a IS200 stuff like CV joints or engine mounts going(common on some cars)? As a former Altezza owner i know stuff like the throttle need cleaning due to sticky throttle resulting in a jammed pedal(very scary), a Err3 on radio & CD's jamming but i be changing that anyway & wheels corroding but yet again i be changing them too & also power steerin pump leaks on Altezza RS200's not sure of UKDM is200 thouh & think i looked at a post about the ECU that need replacing?

Thanks if u can help.

hi

other than radio and wheels the only thing i can think of is the ball joints and the annoying clinky brake pads shifitng in the calipers.

i have had my IS200 for 2 years now and with over 120k on the clock no prob's.

where in Essex are you? as im also in Essex.

Thanks, Aaron i the one that sold you that dash tray & that Cusco rear strut bar, im near Southend on Sea, now that i finished work on my 03 Mazda 323F 2.0 i just want a new car since i loved the Altezza i even settle for a UKDM is200 as the Integra DC2 is quite hard to find !

only real problems I've had have been to do with the brakes, and stereo. Clinky brakes, clunky brakes, grindy brakes, warped brakes, safe to say the brakes are quite **** :hehe:

Only other major problem I had was with my front shocks, but I blame all the speed bumps in my area, and they weren't too dear to replace anyway.

as for the stereo, I just ripped the ***** out and stuck in an alpine :D
