Anyone that thinks this car understeers has got the wrong tires on the car. The handling and cornering feel of this car is hard to match, even by newer cars. Ignore the specified mileage figures, at least for the VTEC. I would get 28-29 mpg cruise and no less than 26 mpg if I really put my foot into it a lot with a fair amount of city driving. The VTEC would start to kick in about 4500 rpm and felt a bit like a turbo. Passing 5 cars will put you over 120 mph in real hurry on the highway. The last time I got to drive this it had 130,000 miles on it and ran like new. It has always run on synthetic (Mobil-1 & Amsoil) engine/gear oil from the 1st oil change at 1000 miles. A drunk driver hit it.

I was 15 when i bought my car from some guy down my street for about $3,000, he told me it might need some work on it, but after i did my research on how much it would cost, i was bought within the week, it only cost me about $150 for the parts i needed and the labor was only $85, but after all that, it was ready to hit the streets, its never broken down, it's been the most reliable car if ever seen.

Ever since I learned how to drive , I've been looking for a Honda Prelude. I have a Honda Accord but I fell in love with preludes so when I found a 1993 Honda Prelude for $500 I told my father and he bought it for me. I am Happy with it , I love the Outside and Inside , but what I really love is the Speed and how wonderful it is to Drive it. Everyone says I got it for an Extremely Low Price and been wanting to buy it off me but I will never sell it, lol. Now I own 2 1993 Preludes a Grey one and a white one and I am satisfied.

Bought my prelude as a used car. The car was 7 years old with 100000 miles. I owned it for 50000 miles had to fix 2 things, the oil pan and the clutch. This car is super fast and handles prefectly. Took it to the tracks pulled a 14.9 1/4mile with no performance parts. The car hangs like a dream, I have drifted going 70 miles an hour was able to keep control no problem. If you find a good deal BUY THIS CAR.

The 1993 Si VTEC model is the quickest
prelude ever produced. It handles like
a dream and the VTEC exhaust note is oh-
so sweet. The factory Recar seats hold
you firmly in place while the OEM 7
speaker stereo plays. This car is for
the most part, automotive perfection.
To top it all off, its 12 years old and
has 106k miles on it. If you're
considering this car, just keep in mind
that they are very expensive to own and
maintain. However this more than pays
off in having the pleasure of driving
the fastest Honda branded 4cyl coupe
ever sold in the US.

Wow... thats all that really needs to
be said. For one, the car is WAY ahead
of its time in exterior styling...and I
for one, like the interior as well. Now
lets talk performance. I paired the
already fire-breathing V-TEC engine
with Greddy Power Extreme exhaust and
AEM cold air intake. Let me tell
you..the car dyno's 213 HP and I only
spent like $700. The first-gear torque
is downright scary. And the sound is
amazing...especially when the V-TEC
kicks in at 4900. When the V-TEC kicks
in you can hear and feel it...which
makes it really fun to drive. The car
has nearly 150k miles on it and I have
had no problems whatsoever!
