1998 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe


I just bought a '98 base Prelude because I was bored of the family sedan... and this car isn't boring! It's VTEC system with a relative lack of low-end torque is like having 2 cars - the first is the low revving economical commute happy at 2k, and it is equally happy up to 7k scaring the pants off you at how quickly you reached "too fast". It feels heavy to me, as if I shouldn't try throwing it around - but when I do I never get into trouble! There may be better cars than the Prelude, but I doubt many will give you this kind of fun for the same price.

Best Features

Interior and exterior styling, high- end power, solid feel. Engine is happy at any number of revs.

Worst Features

Low end torque would make it even better. Larger numbers on speedo so that I know to stop accelerating when wife isn't in the car. Driver controlled passenger airbag to keep my wife quiet.
