1998 Honda Prelude Type SH Type SH 2dr Coupe


Review

I own a 98 SH. This car is fabulous. Its fun, extremely low maintenance, quick, easy to drive and has curb appeal. The paint and finish are remarkable. Mechanically - its bullet proof. Check the oil with each tank of fuel though.... it's a vtec thing.


Best Features

Dependability and its a simple pleasure to drive.


Worst Features

Start making them again. I'd buy a new one in a heartbeat.

Review

You're in a front wheel drive car... You floor it at the light and make your left turn with your foot to the floor, yet there is no tire squeal and the car just pulls you through the turn with a serious growl, you steer even harder left and the back slowly starts to kick out. Is this car rear wheel drive or did Honda truly fix front wheel drive understeer. The latter. Every front wheel drive car should have ATTS! So much fun to drive!


Best Features

Active Torque Transfer System (ATTS) VTEC engine has great power at high RPMs.


Worst Features

Possibly the interior but it doesn't really matter.

The car is fun to drive, and corners well. The car needs more HP (195 HP), but the car still zips along. Overall its a good car!


Worst Features

More HP!

Review

I own a Prelude SH with 105k miles, it just runs amazing, in my school we have started a prelude team, we have in our school alone 5 preludes, each memeber put in alot of effort in finding one. i have to only SH out of the group, and even though i have the most milage i can take any of thier ludes, you just have to take care of them, u cant drive em like a camry, u have to have a compassionate love for the car so you will put in money and time, my weekdays are all school and work, and my weekends are all for my prelude. the ATTS SH is amazing, you will feel the difference people! over all it was my dream car and i finally got it, and people turn thier heads twice when my SH rolls by all stk


Best Features

ATTS SH is just amazing! but doesnt help in snow...Looks


Worst Features

better seats, especially with the SH model is all about taking tight turns, and the seats dont support you what so ever, i am thinking about swapping my seats for some 4th gen prelude seats.

Review

The ATTS really makes this car handle well, but it does prevent you from doing significant power upgrades. I'v been driving it for over 5 years, and still love it!


Best Features

The VTEC engine, ATTS limited slip differental, and slick tranny


Worst Features

Start making new ones again
