I had purchased this car in Jan of 2012. It has 193k on the odometer. After being a Honda Mechanic for a few years, I was confident in the vehicle, but had seen very few of these. I had nothing but problems when owning mine. Within a few weeks, my timing belt had broke, and left me stranded. After rebuilding the entire top end of the engine, I drove it for two weeks when the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder went out. Two days after that it was the TPS sensor. After repair almost everything, I thought it was safe to drive, and drove it for 4 hours and it would not start again, which is where I gave up. I suggest going to a VERY well maintained one, or finding another vehicle.

This car has been a disappointment due to the inferior quality of replacement electrical system parts... three main relays have failed (replacement approximately $700 each) and three ignition switches failed (replacement approximately $200 each). Honda Prelude replacement electrical parts are garbage IMHO. I will likely never purchase another Honda. However, the best car I ever owned was a 1990 Acura Integra.

I've had this car two years now, and have not had any problems. When I bought it in '03, everyone thought I had gotten a new car (not realizing the prelude was discontinued two years before). It's fun to drive, looks great, and is an all around perfect car.

When i purchased my Prelude it got me in
a lot of trouble. Its FAST and sporty
but, chicks will look twice when they
see you in a Prelude. Getting premium
unleaded gas is a drag but definately
worth the performance.

I've had this car for over 4 years, and
I still love it. I bought it with 132K
miles, and it now has 185K. The only
problems have been a small oil leak and
a worn out distributor. The sexy
curviness of this car is way better
than the ridged design of the 5th gen.
Prelude. Criticism aside, I love
the "funky" mid-dash display of the
interior. The gauges are easier to
read than some other cars that clutter
the gauges in front of the driver. A
few complaints include: the headlight
components are a bit cheap, road/wind
noise is more than abundant at highway
speeds, rear visibility is less than
adequate and the speaker covers are a
