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.


Best Features

Exterior styling, smoothness of ride, reliability.


Worst Features

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?


Best 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


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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,


Best Features

engine, shape, stereo is second to none.


Worst Features

bigger gas tank, more appealing interior
