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
2.3L engine (more immediate torque than
the VTEC and better gas mileage, albeit
slower), smart auto. transmission
(downshifts when you want it to) and
the styling inside and out.
Seeing as how Honda killed the Prelude,
I'll say an improvement would be to
BRING IT BACK! If you get your hands
on one, I recommend cat-back exhaust
and a beefier suspension. Also,
despite the intelligence of the auto,
the manual is still more fun.
