Honda Prelude

#8220;Wonderfully competent driver. Great gas millage, around 29/highway, 21 combined. Brakes and tires seem to last a lot longer than other sports coupes, I put new brakes at 80K and still have 60% remaining and replaced tires at 45K and just bought new ones at 125K!The tread was still within good range, but, as I live in Las Vegas where the heat is hard on them, the side walls were starting to crack and crumble.

If I lived in a milder climate (like Seattle) I#8217;m sure the tires would still have been OK, not needing replacement for another 20K! I replaced all belts at 117K. Examining them showed they could have lasted longer, but MFG#8217;s recommendation was replace at 80K. Only caveat is rear seats are fit only for children or SMALL adults.

Too bad Honda stopped producing them, (replaced with S2000) as I, along with many more folks, would definitely purchase another. Body has no #8221; door dings#8221;

#8220;I loved this car, I had one for about 3 years. super fast, reliable, never failed on me. handling and acceleration. I loved the feel of the v-tech kicking in. the only down turn was the fuel miles, I used to get about 24 mpg#8217;s with octane 91,high fuel prices and a long commute, I was not able to effort it any more. Now that I don#8217;t have a long commute, I wish that it was still made to buy another.#8221;

#8220;This is my 6th year spent with my BB6. In the 6 years I#8217;ve owned it, we#8217;ve went through 1 accident, a couple close calls, rebuilt head, and a 5 speed swap (from auto). I#8217;ve done all the regular maintenance and it has never left me stranded once. This car was the best Honda money could buy, and it#8217;s classy and timeless appearance will continue on through time unlike many of the other offerings of it#8217;s time (i.e. Civics, Integras, etc).

Yes, it#8217;s heavy and FWD, but the sound of a properly maintained H22 is nothing like anything else you can hear. If you want tons of aftermarket support and a car everyone and their mother drives, go buy an Si. If you want something you don#8217;t always see often, and when you do you almost have to ask, #8220;that#8217;s a Honda?#8221; then buy a Prelude. However, on the not so bright side#8230; It#8217;s expensive to repair, parts are hard to find and expensive, it burns A LOT of oil, and it#8217;s not so great on gas (I average 25 city/hwy) and it requires PREMIUM fuel only (if you think you can get buy on 87, do a search on engine denotation (you#8217;ll thank me later)).#8221;
