Hi All,

I own a Acura Integra and I am now shopping for IS300. I test drove 2 private party 2001 IS300.

1)
In first one I heard a feeble down shifting sound (or that is what I told to myself) when I apply brake.
And in second one that sound is less noticble but still there.

Is there any known issue or common occuring problem I am seeing OR
is that one of the positive aspects of high power car. ? :)

2) One private party owner said he used Chevron 89 fuel (and not 91) on his car. Is that fine?

Thanks
K

1. sometimes the engine likes to downshift when you brake...especially going downhill

2. no thats not good...if its once...maybe...our cars are meant to have 91 or higher
