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


Review

Owned it for over 3 yrs since new. It has not failed me once. Its classic styling (esp. the headlights) grow on you. 200HP is not high for today's stds but power isn't everything. It is such a well-rounded sports car that does everything well, with handling being its best attribute. If you want a FUN and exciting car to drive w/good utility and great reliability this is it.


Best Features

VTEC, headlights, close ratio gearbox, good brakes and suspension.


Worst Features

6th gear/OD for highway cruising. RE- 92's are NOT all-season performance tires!!!!!!

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.

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


Worst Features

More HP and bring it back.

2001 Honda Prelude 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.
