2001 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


97-01 Prelude (5th generation of prelude) is a great car overall. It is stylish, yet sporty, and its got some punch to back it up. 200hp/155tq, its a great H22A4 engine. However, vehicle is too heavy for its kind (3000pds). Handling is still one of the best out there, ATTS is great too, but known problems need to be carefully reviewed. Interior is too out-dated, however, it is simple and easy to use as sports car supposed to be. Rear seat/Trunk space is useless, but hey, its not a family grocery getter sedan. If you are in the market right now for a reasonbly priced, reliable, stylish and powerful sports compact that will seperate you from others, this is the car for you.

Best Features

H22A4/VTEC honda Inline 4 power. Excellent exotic look compared to other ordinary sport compact design. Simple, easy to use instrument. Pretty good visibility inside. One-of-the-best handling, one hell of a fun car to drive. Easy & cheap aftermarket parts for performance upgrades and repairs.

Worst Features

Factory performance needs improvement. Why? cause it should be at least faster than previous generation.Interior redesign DEFINITELY needed. Rear seat is useless. Trunk space is small, headlight tabs tend to break a lot, few known suspension problems and timing belt problem needs to be observed.
