I bought my 96 si 1 year ago with 127k miles on it the only thing I have had to fix on it is the clutch and a rear wheel bearing this car is by far the most reliable car I've ever had. If you are looking at this trying to decide if you should buy one stop thinking and go get it.

I decided in November of 2006 that I wanted a Prelude Si. I looked for over 8 months for one with low miles that I could afford. I finally found one, drove over 200 miles just to look at it, then bought it and drove it straight home. The car has given me no drivability problems whatsoever! The condenser fan was replaced, and all fluids changed as soon as we got home. I love how this car drives. Even the 4spd auto makes great high RPM shifts and knows just how to handle the amazing power put out by this fuel efficient 4cyl. (On the hwy that is.) The interior styling is extremely driver freindly and the exterior is timeless as this 11 year old car looks better than most 2008s! I love it

I LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVE my 1996 Honda Prelude! It has always been my dream car, and ever since I bought it it has exceeded my expectations. I have never seen an inside dash as cool as the '92-'96 Prelude's. I just wish I had VTEC though. They are way to hard to get ahold of.

1st off this forum has been VERY
helpful to me. I researched ALOT of
cars for hrs upon hrs and I had no
doubt that I wanted a Honda, I found a
few preludes, on line, and the one I
purchased was 400 miles/8 hrs (round
trip) away from where I live! I made
trip to test drive and fell in love,
bought it right there on the spot! I
had to have a friend drive me back to
pick it up on another day. This car is
VERY fun to drive, I've been in my
Dodge intrepid ('95 3.3 ltr) for 4.5
yrs, it is more comfortable.. but
that's to be expected. I test drove 3
NEW honda'a ('05 accord, 04 civic ex,
04 civic lx) and this car ('96!) out
peerformed all 3! new cars don't have
the balls anymore.. fuel efficiency?

Been driving this car for 8 years.
Recently replaced radiator and
repaired the ABS, but other than that
no problems at all.Can't think of any
other actual repairs that have had to
be done, just kept on the regular
maintenance schedule. This is my
second Prelude. Kept the 1st one 8
years as well.
