1999 Honda Prelude Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

The 5th generation Prelude is the best looking Honda ever built. It strikes the perfect balance between the conservative lines of the Accord and the edgy aggressiveness of the NSX. Sure . . . it could do with a bit more low-end power, but it has plenty of juice for just about any situation you can imagine. What's more important -- it's REFINED power. 110 MPH feels more like 55 and there's almost no body roll to speak of. I was saddened when Honda decided to discontinue this exceptional line . . . but, I GOT MINE!!! I suggest you do the same.


Favorite Features

Exterior styling, smoothness of ride, reliability.


Suggested Improvements

MORE POWER!!!!!

Review

why do people bash on the interior of the prelude? its got the bare essentials...all that luxory crap is just extra weight anyways. yes, i agree the cupholders are terrible, that's why i got JDM cupholders that came off a prelude type-s. the body shape is awesome, people say they hate the rectangular headlights, but i love them...doesn't look like every other civic on the road. 200hp 4 banger, what more can you ask for?


Favorite Features

8,000rpm redline....and yes, you can rev up that high, classy but sporty look (doesn't look like an integra or a civc), 200hp 4 banger


Suggested Improvements

usdm prelude type-s would be nice...or the SIr, shorter shifter

Review

I've had my Prelude for over 4 years now and have not had a single problem with it. Extremely dependable and reliable car. Handling is excellent for a car in this price range and acceleration is also quite good. Honda is the King of small-engine performance and the Prelude is no exception. True, you won't get the heart-stopping performance of a V8, but the Prelude can hold its own quite well and is cheaper at the gas pump too. All in all, just an excellent all- around package from Honda and a true pleasure to drive.


Favorite Features

1) Nice styling 2) Superb Honda reliability 3) The roar of the VTEC at over 5200 rpm


Suggested Improvements

Functional but conservative interior. Surprising for what was once Honda's flagship (and sportiest) model. The front seats are also disappointing for a sporty model. Back seat is useless; may as well replace it with storage bins so at least I can use the carpool lane!

Review

To anyone that is thinking about buying this car, don't hesistate. It is excellent. It's fast and sturdy and most importantly dependable. Will never break down and so far (after 43000 miles) I've only had to change the tires. Fuel consumption is a bit high for a four cylinder (19 mph average) and the tank is small. This can prove frustrating as I have to fill it up every 4 days or so. Nevertheless, if I had to choose whether or not to get this car again, I would jump on the opportunity to get it again. I have test driven many sport cars (350Z, G35) and they are not much different in performance from this,


Favorite Features

engine, shape, stereo is second to none.


Suggested Improvements

bigger gas tank, more appealing interior
