2000 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe


Most of the problems I had were really
my fault (like trying to roll down the
window when it was frozen) My biggest
complains are a couple of noises from
the engine that the Honda dealer says
not to worry about. The clutch
sometimes slips and makes a griding
noise. The clutch is kind of hard to
I keep getting check engine light,
dealer says everything is ok.
So far the only money I have put in
the car is for oil changes and I have
51000 miles.
The interior looks like a 1980's Honda
Accord, but its built strong.
Forget about the 2 seats in the back.
Don't buy it if you are more than 6
feet tall. Its a Honda, but its not

Best Features

2,157 cc, 4 cylinder = 200 hp. (cant beat that) Really fun car to drive, handles like a F1. Its a very unique car. It is like a Civic SI on steroids!

Worst Features

Lot of mystery noises, specially from engine compartment and sunroof. I wish they built it with fog lights and a 6th gear. The head lights on the 4th generation look so much better. The dashboard is from the 80's. Don't plan on having rear passengers. NOT the best customer service.
