Bought my red 5 speed in June 2005 with 129,000 miles on the clock. I now have 150,000 and I just love this car. I like the punch, the great corner- carving ability and the looks. Each time I walk past the car I just have to smile. I know the 4WS makes the car heavier and therefore slower than the VTEC, but the handling is so great it is worth it. I soon intend to use it as a track day car (while continuing the "daily driver" duties.)
The styling, the solid feel of the entire car, the Si engine (that can run well on 87 octane when the gas gougers raise the prices). The trunk is capable for a true sports car. Even the back seat is OK for some storage as I bought the car knowing no human over 6 months old could fit in it.
It needs at least 1 cup holder and a bigger glove box. I'd also like to see more after-market options.
I own a 93 Honda Prelude VTEC, and I absolutely love it! I bought it with 103k miles on it back in 99 and cant stop redlining it every chance I get since then. The car has 160k and is 14 years old now so few things eventfully give up do to my rough driving habits: clutch, O2 sensor, exhaust flex pipe, hmm I cant think of anything more the button for a hand brake is sticking once a week. Seats are so comfortable that it is hard to stay awake for long drives, but one push on the gas pedal and a sound of the VTEC engaging while you accelerate to 120mph on fairly sharp corner will send your hart rate sky rocking and will put a big smile on your face.
When I smoke my buddies Mustang SVT on the road course, I love that suspension and PERFECT gear ration in my trany
This car is discontinued. Prelude lost buyers because of a horrible body change that they did for 97 and up, only one choice of an engine with lower performance then 93-96, manual transmission as an expensive option. Put the curves back, stick a V6 in it, and I will be first one in line to buy it
