Needed Work But I Still Love My Prelude
By ilovemyprelude on


1997 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe


I bought my Prelude new. It has been a great car, however I just spent $3K on a re-built transmission at 75,000 miles and the moon roof just started to go last weekend. I still receive tons of compliments on the car and have had several offers to buy it. In fact, when I was shopping around for the transmission work I had three offers to buy it. Everyone says the V-tech is fast, but it seems a little slow to me. I don't get great gas milage either. It's been a great car and I still love it, but I am a little disappointed with the transmission.

Best Features

Exterior and interior design. I purchased the perma-plate paint protection when I bought the car and it worked great as the paint still shines as if it were new.

Worst Features

What's up with needing a new transmission after $75,000 miles? I have to say I am a little disappointed.
