Too bad you can't buy 'em new anymore
By Michael of C+M on

Vehicle

2000 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe

Review

The first can I ever purchased new and a good choice at that. What every "big- muffler" Civic Si wants to be when it grows up. If you have to transport kids or more than one adult, forget it, but if your life permits such a car, go for it. No major defects, but would sure like it if the dealer could find and silence the sunroof squeak and figure out why the front suspension creaks and pops on warm days like my knees on cold days. BUY A K&N FILTER!!: $20 for a regular replacement is robbery. $40 for a K&N and it's the last air filter you'll have to buy.

Favorite Features

Incredible ride/handling tradeoff. Sticks in turns AND rides comfortably. The engine sounds when the high-rev cam lobes take over. Slick-shifting Transmission. Powerful Air Conditioner.

Suggested Improvements

Most importantly: Start building it again. 6th gear to improve fuel economy. Factory fog lamps. Rotary HVAC controls instead of sliders. Stop "tuners" from selling butt-ugly body kits and silver taillights. Interior collects dust faster than any other car I've owned.
