1997 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe

Review

I got this car 2 years ago with about 97k miles on ,but it felt new. The one thing that cost my attention was it's unique look compared to other hondas. I bought this car for about 8k and for the price its probably the most rounded sports coupe(except for maybe an integra gs-r). The 2.2l vtec engine runs strong and pushes this car to 60mph in about 7 sec, Car and driver did it in 6.7! This car is very fun to drive daily and handles very well. EPA mileage seems low ,but it depends on driving. I achieved. about 25-26 city and 30mpg highway(5spd.) This is great for a first car and even for a weekend car.

Favorite Features

vtec, styling, handling, price, and the ride, optional lip kit(Recommended)

Suggested Improvements

Japanese Version Engine(Higher compression, better exhaust, and diff cams)=222hp, slightly better mileage especially during these times, standard lip kit, 17 inch wheels, lsd, and weight reduction. <----Just in case they want to bring the Prelude back.
