5th Gen 'lude, Honda hits another homer!
By Chris on


1997 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe


I owned an 87 Prelude that was tons of fun, drove several friends 3rd and 4th gens, and this week finally got behind the wheel of a 5th Gen... my own :) I just picked it up last week and the first time behind the wheel i was instantly grinning over that classic prelude feel. My car has 139000 miles on it and seems to run and handle like the day it rolled off the line. The styling has caught my eye everytime I've seen one for the past 10 years, but with other car projects always in the works, I never had an opportunity to buy one. Better late than never tho, at least now I get a chance to enjoy what Ive been missing! Great looks, great handling, great power! Too bad it's the end of an era

Best Features

Silk smooth manual trans, confident suspension for the twisty roads, I just love how everything in the car is about driving. The car was clearly designed to be driven!

Worst Features

Not that it's a big deal, but because I'm not into spending money on aftermarket audio systems for a car, it would be nice if the factory audio system were a little richer sounding. But really, there isn't much else, seeing as the car is near-perfect
