1994 Honda Prelude Si 2dr Coupe


I wrote a review on this car over 2 years ago; since that time I have put 55k on it, and, granted I drive it very hard, the car is showing its age. Honestly, this car is good, but Euro cars (BMW) can walk circles around it in terms of comfort and performance, and, sadly for the Prelude, cost about the same. The adage of Hondas being cheaper to repair than other brands is a myth, in the last year I have put in an A/C Compressor ($1050), and a clutch ($1000) parts are obscenely expensive, and the car is nearly impossible to work on. This car is a fun, and it handles awesome, but is too expensive and uncomfortable, especially with a 3-series available for the same money.

Best Features

Performance and handling, the steering is amazingly tight, the car is still solid at nearly 170k,

Worst Features

Price of parts/repair, a real pain to work on (this really goes for any FWD car though-not a Prelude trait.), cramped, uncomfortable and oddly styled interior, poor outside visibility.
