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