1998 Honda Prelude Type SH Type SH 2dr Coupe


Review

I love my prelude. It has distinctive styling, good fuel mileage, and great handling. Also preludes are relatively rare (compared to civics, accords, and integras). The only critisism I can give is it needs about 30-40 more hp. I would buy another prelude but unfortunately honda has moved on to the s2000.


Best Features

ATTS handling, styling, and gas milage


Worst Features

lose about 100 pounds and add about 50Hp and this car would be perfect

Review

Prelude SH, it grips on to the road like a lion hunting for its prey, but runs like a buffalo. Too heavy and not enough horse power to support its weight. I drive my prelude 7 days a week, averaging 90 miles a day, and I drive it hard. Only problem with the car, engine makes flapping sound between 1200-2300 RPM. A common problem for prelude engine. My previous 98 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gs-T had better performance with less price tag. If you want great handling car, Prelude SH is the one for you.


Best Features

ATTS (Active Torque Transfer System), opens moon-roof and windows after engine is turned off.


Worst Features

Make interior more attractive, CD player with better display, dash board clock needs to be more brighter or locate it else where for better viewing during day time, MORE POWER!

Review

Want a car that doesn't look like every other 'boy racer' yet fits four, handles as well as any front wheel driver, is fast, gets decent mileage (when you're not blasting around), and is 100% reliable? There is no better choice.


Best Features

brakes are great, engine rocks, 200hp (with K&N filter), yet 25mpg on my weekly commute.


Worst Features

Factory tires are not acceptable, there are annoying clunks in every Prelude's rear suspension that Honda won't fix.

Have used in a roadrace application. Still very durable and dependable. Good high speed stability. Great every day driver, good balnce between suspension handling and comfort.


Best Features

Active Differential (ATTS), gas milage, Audio system


Worst Features

Could go on a diet, Larger contact patch, and a couple more horsies wouldn't hurt.
