1st Honda, finally!
By n_stemp on


1996 Honda Prelude Si 2dr Coupe


1st off this forum has been VERY
helpful to me. I researched ALOT of
cars for hrs upon hrs and I had no
doubt that I wanted a Honda, I found a
few preludes, on line, and the one I
purchased was 400 miles/8 hrs (round
trip) away from where I live! I made
trip to test drive and fell in love,
bought it right there on the spot! I
had to have a friend drive me back to
pick it up on another day. This car is
VERY fun to drive, I've been in my
Dodge intrepid ('95 3.3 ltr) for 4.5
yrs, it is more comfortable.. but
that's to be expected. I test drove 3
NEW honda'a ('05 accord, 04 civic ex,
04 civic lx) and this car ('96!) out
peerformed all 3! new cars don't have
the balls anymore.. fuel efficiency?

Best Features

Low end pick up. this carr TAKES OFF! I can't beleive it's a '96/ 4 cyl. I drove my friends '04 (3wks old!) aztek down to pick my car up and could feel a difference in pickup and handling on ride home. Honda's rule.. get one, even if high miles. Many friends have/had honda's, PROVEN quality..Get one

Worst Features

Bring back preludes! Thee coolest honda ever, although small. Honda needs to make higher hrse pwr engines available as option to those who like to drive. I am not that worried about fuel prices.. It's a honda! 1.17 hp civic LX.. no balls at all even w/ vtec, same for EX 1.27ish. Make fun cars again!
