1995 Honda Prelude SE 2dr Coupe


Strangers continually compliment me on
my Civic or Accord, and I tell them
it's a Prelude, and they get
surprised. This car is 8 years old
(it's a 95)this model has been around
since '92, which makes it 10+ years of
chance that you've had to know what it
was. They are surprised to find out
that it is faster than a formidably
upgraded Civic (!) (even stock/non-VTEC
Preludes are not in production any
longer because people have some sort of
fascination with Civics that sound like
Mine has 120,000+ miles on it.. No
mechanical problems as of yet, and no
signs of future ones.

Best Features

The Dashboard makes it look like you are driving a space ship. Leather seats are very comfortable. Plenty of power (even though it's the 160 HP engine). Looks, looks, looks. Reliablity - I'm very hard on the brakes and I corner and accelerate hard often. None of that phases this car.

Worst Features

There's no glove box in this model! Often used electrical controls (Sunroof, Cruise Control, Windows, Locks) are in inconvenient spots. Nowhere for driver to comfortably rest left arm (maybe it should stay on the steering wheel anyway), or the passenger's right arm.
