I bought my SH brand new and basically drove the wheels off of it. It is by far, the best handling vehicle I have ever driven. It was more than enough power and the engine is a true gem. The drive train is refined and a step above anything in the Honda lineup even till this day. The Acura TSX/RSX comes close but I still prefer the Prelude overall. I sold it with over 300K and have regretted it ever since. I am currently looking for another one! If you have a chance to pick one up..just do it.

I purchased my type SH new in 1997. I just put a new clutch in at 239,500 or so miles. The interior is like new. I need to address some very minor rust on rear wheel wells and that is all. I had to extend my clutch petal by an inch or so to make the car more comfortable. Other than that I love this car. It is so comfortable and fun to drive and gets 26 MPG at very aggressive driving speeds. If you can find one that has been taken care of buy it.

No one believes my car is a '97! I try to keep it in great shape and definitely keep it serviced. If only I could keep those SUV folks from running me off the road since they don't see me "down here", life in my Prelude would be perfect! But what am I to do when its time to retire this one, since Honda pulled production?? Hopefully that day won't come anytime soon...

My Prelude is just un-describable!! I purchased this car with 119,000 miles on it and it performs like it has 19,000. It's amazingly clean and will last me years to come! So go out and buy one A.S.A.P you wont regret it!!

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.
