I sold a Vette to get a Lude? You bet!!

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


My 2001 Prelude replaces a 1989
Corvette Convertible. The Corvette was
nice but this Prelude has a higher fun-
to-drive factor. Plus it hasn't left
me stranded like the Vette did. Down
side is the Prelude insurance is
actually HIGHER than the Vette! The
Prelude was voted the best handling car
under $30,000 by a car mag and I can
believe it. I like to keep the H22a
motor in VTEC, it sounds like a Formula
One engine past 5200 RPM. It feels
faster than it is. The interior is a
step backwards from the 4th gen,
reminds me of an Accord's, wish it had
the 92-96 guts. Still I think it's a
world class sports coupe.

Best Features

The H22a motor. It's like two motors in one, under 5200 RPM it's a typical smooth 4 banger, over 5200 and it's a monster!! Solid constuction and race car handling.

Worst Features

6th gear, leather seats for US models, 250 hp and 200 lbs of torque, more exciting interior to match the bold exterior styling. It's all a moot point anyway since Honda had to KILL IT!!! Errrr....
