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


My '01 model runs like the day I got it
after 52,000 miles. The only quality
issue has been the driver's side window
which makes a thud when going up. No
squeaks or rattles though. It cruises
along fine at 80 but can be a bit noisy
since it's a 4 cylinder. It is not a
drag racer but it accelerates very
quickly once you get the revs up.
Requires premium fuel every fill up.
You also have to drive the Prelude 100%
of the time because of its tight
steering and you will feel every road
flaw because of its tight suspension.
It's been a fun few years but I will
probably trade it in a year or so for a
six cylinder that can carry four adults
and has modern amenities.

Best Features

Nice performance. Comfortable interior. Fast cruiser.

Worst Features

It could use a six cyl. or at least a 6th gear to reduce the revs at cruisiing speed. Premium fuel costs add up!
