1993 Honda Prelude VTEC 2dr Coupe

Review

I had a '93 Prelude VTEC 4 years ago. Was hands down, the best car I've had. Acceleration was Excellent (0-60 in about 6.8 seconds), handling and cornering had to be tops in its' class, quality was very high, gas mileage was so-so (but it's not an econo-car anyways), and reliability was fantastic. In my opinion the Prelude is the cream of the crop in the import-sc (sport coupe) class (Eclipse/240 SX/MX- 6/Prelude/Celica). It's aggressive styling still looks great today. Honda needs to bring back a sport coupe soon. The car is popular with thieves here in LA, so garage it if you can.

Favorite Features

Neck-snapping quickness. Refined, but oh-so-rev-happy engine. Sleek exterior and sexy interior. Reliabilty is very good as well.

Suggested Improvements

Repairs can be expensive (new clutch and slave cylinder cost me $700). Insurance is high on VTEC model. Instrumentation can be hard to get use to.
