2001 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


My '01 model runs like the day I got it after 52,000 miles. The only quality issue has been the driver's side window which makes a thud when going up. No squeaks or rattles though. It cruises along fine at 80 but can be a bit noisy since it's a 4 cylinder. It is not a drag racer but it accelerates very quickly once you get the revs up. Requires premium fuel every fill up. You also have to drive the Prelude 100% of the time because of its tight steering and you will feel every road flaw because of its tight suspension. It's been a fun few years but I will probably trade it in a year or so for a six cylinder that can carry four adults and has modern amenities.

Best Features

Nice performance. Comfortable interior. Fast cruiser.

Worst Features

It could use a six cyl. or at least a 6th gear to reduce the revs at cruisiing speed. Premium fuel costs add up!
