I love how everything looks and feels. It still looks almost new (stupid rust). I get lots of comments on how new it looks(despite being almost 15 years old). The accord engine is a little down on power when combined with the auto tranny. It will still keep up though, especially in corners. I've never really had any big issues with the car, just normal wear then the known issues with hondas of that age (brake master cylinder, master relay, valve cover seal and cam seal). I'm looking for a new car now and can't find anything that looks and drives as good as my prelude. I think I'm getting a newer one. I'm glad that it has back seats, keeps insurance down despite them being useless.
Handling, looks, sound with aftermarket exhaust, dash board, not a car that you see everywhere.
The exhaust rusts and needs replaced every few years. It needs a cup holder badly. Buy a manual car if you can find one. Buy a 93-96 if you want to be able to use the backseat at all(no divider). The seatback only has a small pass thru. Switch the sunroof to the moonroof from a 97-01 prelude (bolton)
