1997 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe


I thought this was a great looking car
from the first I saw a preview in one of
the auto magazines. Had to wait 3 months
to try one at the Honda dealer around
Thanksgiving 1996. Bought the 5th one the
dealer had in stock in January 1997. Have
had zero problems with this car. Mine is
somewhat unique inn that they stopped
making the Eucalyptus green with the 2
tone interior after the first year and
went to the generic "Ford Explorer"
forest green with the black interior. My
2 tone tan/black is cooler and classier.
The car is great under all conditions
except snow.

Best Features

Seat comfort and position: Acceleration and handling always true and smooth. Braking excellent.

Worst Features

Vtec could kick in a little sooner.
