This is the car I wanted ever since it came out in 1997. Now I finally have one. I use to have a 92 civic hatchback vx with a swap and it can't even compare to my prelude. The prelude handles better, looks better, and has the power all in one. I get compliments on it all the time. It's not a car you see everyday on the road. And it's not a car everyone has like a civic, integra, or accord. Buy one you won't regret it.
Vtec, moonroof, a/c, cruise control(I use this alot on long trips), and power doorlocks and windows.
This car in my opinion is wonderful. If you take care of it, not many things are going to go wrong over the years. I mean yes the interior isn't the most stylih around,but if it bothers the owner that bad they can have it modified. Sometimes the parts tend to be a little more pricy that others, but all well worth it, i mean again it is a Honda. The gas is good, but it takes the most expensive kind, which burns slower and lasts longer! Overall...I LOVE my car!
The flat lights and crome "Prelude" emblem on the back gets me! Also the sporttronic shifter is fun to drive with!
The only improvement I would suggest is better stereo quality and leather seats, which were not offered in this year model in hondas effort to reduce prices of their new cars!
I recently bought my Honda Prelude and it is by far the best car I've ever owned. Stock Preludes are decent to look at, but when you stick a good looking body kit on, this car gleams. I have had so many compliments on this car that sometimes I literally have to excuse myself from them in leiu of having to leave! Stock, this engine pushes out 195hp and from a 4 banger! Just imagine what a super charger or turbo and some bolt ons could do to this, a turbo alone could probably push it into the 300hp range. Stock exhaust sounds great on this machine, and the limited slip differential tranny makes this car have the smoothest shifting in any manual I've driven. You wont regret buying a Prelude
195 hp out of a 4 cylinder, awesome transmission, great looks inside and out, Honda quality that lasts and lasts.
It is a bit on the heavy side. This car wants you to drive it fast, and so you use a lot more gas in it than is usual for a four banger. But, if you need a fuel economic sports car, don't rule it out, it will still get at least 22mpg.
I bought this car new, 7 years ago.
No problems to report. The car still
looks and runs like new. My partner
bought an Integra a few months prior
to my purchase. She's currently
looking to replace the Integra -
although the Prelude and Integra are
very, very similar the Prelude has
been a much better car.
This car has amazing performance
particularly the handling when equipped
with the "SH" option. Corners like on
a rail at twice the recommended speed.
A bit noisy but music to the sports car
lover's ears. Was a bit overpriced in
the beginning but now represents one of
the best sports car values available.
Acoustic sound system is the best
standard system I have had so far.
handling, acceleration, design, Honda
Would have preferred leather interior
and miss a remote entry/alarm.
