A perfect first car, or even a car to just get from point A to point B. My Prelude has 185,000mi on it, and has always started up without a problem. This car is about 16 years old, and still many people tell me how much they like it.
Parts are expensive, I haven't even had this car for a year and I've had to do about $2,000 in repairs. Burns oil quickly. Gets about 25mpg in a car that could get 35. The E-Brake doesn't do much.
