First time, some surprises, mostly good.

Vehicle2000 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe
ReviewMy first new car in 13 years and my
first time driving a Prelude. The
dealer had a Black, 2000, 4-speed
sequential sport shift transmission.
Cost $1000 more than the 5-speed
manual. After I got used to the
transmission and shifter, I really
appreciated its benefits. Car has rock-
solid handling, cornering and braking.
Sturdily built and low to the ground
(another feature that takes getting
used to). I regularly use both sides of
the sport-shifter. I plan to keep the
car for a long time.
Best FeaturesExterior styling, handling, cornering, braking. Acceleration ain't bad, but really doesn't 'kick' until 5000 RPM. Cruising at 90 mph (when safe and conditions permit) is smooth and comfortable. Really, these cars were designed to drive at high speeds.
Worst FeaturesSilly of Honda to market this as a 4- seater. Only humans below 5 ft and weighing less than 100 lbs can use rear seats. Too bad they didn't utilize rear space, and properly designate car as a 2-seater.
