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


Review

This car is amazing and after 50K miles, absolutely no problems! Everything is still in perfect condition and feels like I'm driving a new car. Please bring back the 'lude with a 6speed shifter and more HP.


Best Features

VTEC, handling, and totally responsive. A fantastic car to drive.


Worst Features

More HP and bring it back.

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


Review

This car is great, that's the only way to put it. F1 engine tech, Honda reliability, seemless shifting and so much fun to drive. VTEC it's like having a turbo but with no LAG! I have some aftermarket parts. I replaced the junk stock B'stone RE92's with B'stone RE750's, night and day difference. A Quaife limited slip, so it's like ATTS only better, AEM Cold air intake. If your gripes about this car are the requirement for premium fuel, small trunk or too noisy ... you shouldn't drive this type of car. This is one car Honda never should have gotten rid of!


Best Features

H22A in VTEC! Point and go steering.


Worst Features

A 6th gear is about the only improvement this car could have had.

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


Review

My 2001 Prelude replaces a 1989 Corvette Convertible. The Corvette was nice but this Prelude has a higher fun- to-drive factor. Plus it hasn't left me stranded like the Vette did. Down side is the Prelude insurance is actually HIGHER than the Vette! The Prelude was voted the best handling car under $30,000 by a car mag and I can believe it. I like to keep the H22a motor in VTEC, it sounds like a Formula One engine past 5200 RPM. It feels faster than it is. The interior is a step backwards from the 4th gen, reminds me of an Accord's, wish it had the 92-96 guts. Still I think it's a world class sports coupe.


Best Features

The H22a motor. It's like two motors in one, under 5200 RPM it's a typical smooth 4 banger, over 5200 and it's a monster!! Solid constuction and race car handling.


Worst Features

6th gear, leather seats for US models, 250 hp and 200 lbs of torque, more exciting interior to match the bold exterior styling. It's all a moot point anyway since Honda had to KILL IT!!! Errrr....
