My first car, drove it from 149K to 180k Miles, commuting to college daily. Was a blast to drive it. It was quick and stylish for a 1992 car. Wish Honda still made them. If you took care of the car, it takes care of you. It never failed me.
The back seats were tight.
Took corners and handled like a race car. I can only Imagine what the 4WS version drove like.
No one could ever believe it was a 92, Good job with the impressive styling by Honda.
Had the Original clutch at 180k Miles when I sold it still running strong.
The digital temperature and fuel gauge made the interior look like a spaceship
Bought my lude at 252,000 miles for 1600 from someone in my area. Original engine. Weekly commutes between ATL and Charlotte by previous owner. It had 4ws(amazing in the parking lot, seamless at cruising speeds). it was auto(booo) but the 2.3 motor was still pretty quick. smoked eclipses, civic, integras, even a vtec lude. interior comfortable. 6 spkr audio setup amazing. car carries sub base extremely well. very fun to drive, almost gokart like. Totaled her at 305,000 miles, car split in half, roof smashed down, could touch the pavement from drivers seat through floorboard, and i still walked away without even a cut. Speed sensor went out and a/c lights went out. Thats it.
four wheel steering
in dash tweeters
space ship dash
front alternating signal lights
front seat support
easy to drive in snow and heavy rains
SUNROOF (pretty quiet)
Cloth seats looked brand new after 19 yrs.
Key lockable center console great for valuables.
Why was this car not rwd?
More horsepower. 160 and 200 not enough for this aggressive look.
Terrible headlights as with most hondas.
i have owned my prelude si for about 10 years now and i loved it! i am on the 3rd motor but it still around kicking strong! the body has 270,000 miles on it and has no rust or major dents, i did away with the stock wheels and put 19 inch rays racing wheels on it and it handle like a Cadillac lol had to do away with h23 and put the f22 in it for now, but not every one knows what they in the f22s you boost a stock f22 10 to 12 lbs and be just as fast or faster the h22, enjoy your preludes because i have enjoyed mine. bout time to sell want an s2000 to play with.
love the seats they are the most comfortable i have ever sat in love the lumbar support
recall on the climate controls they go bad in every 92-96 prelude so the ac control goes out on all of them sometimes they wor and some times they don't!
This is the only new car I have ever bought. 190k miles now and running strong. Still using the original brakes and brake pads. On my 3rd set of tires. The only parts replaced have been the timing belt/water pump at 120k miles reg maint., and distributor and radiator at about 140k miles. I think I replaced 2 tail light bulbs too. That's it. This car has surpassed my level of comprehension of reliability. I am going to give it to my son, and am looking for a replacement that will be as reliable.
handling, acceleration, reliability, curb appeal (had it repainted about 4 years ago)
back seat is for insurance reasons only; all tires on this car are bad in the snow
This car has the best handling in its price category. Performance is good for a 4 cyl. The 4ws is so much fun to drive, you just wanna turn in corner at the last second so people in the other lane think you're gonna hit them. For a 16 year old car, exterior is great. When you stop at a red light, people just want to race you even if you don't want to. Note this is a cop magnet car too. Give the car good tire and handling is more then amazing.
4ws, vtec, driver seat position makes you feel like your driving a jet.
Cupholders please, the car is also a bit on the heavy side compared to civic of those years
