This car has been the best I have ever owned (of 8). I am thinking of replacing it on the 'before'....other experiences say it should have problems now. it doesn't and hasn't. It has no major competitor IMHO...I guess because Prelude is not built anymore I have to go to Accura RXS-S. The Prelude is quick, the handling is superb, it almost goes sideways, it is a constant pleasure to drive.
Handling, reliability, well organized driver controls, features included that would be higher cost 'options' in other brands.
Lumbar support, moon roof spoiler, oil pressure gauge not there?...maybe I don't need it but I like one.
