Beware of this Vehicle

by Sharpie from | December 28, 2010

I personally reviewed this vehicle and alhough the dealership did an outstanding job polishing both interior and the exterior, this vehicle blew smoke and black fuild from the exhaust and the tail pipes were completely black. They pulled the vehicle inside for review and their best guess was at least 2k in repairs for value gaskets. I passed.

LOVE my prelude!!!!!!!!!!

by Nikki from Lodi, California | February 9, 2009

I purchased my prelude when it was two years old and had 22,000 miles on it. That was eight years and 237,000 miles ago and I still love this car!! The handleing of this car is unbeatable! I also love the exterior styling. My only complaint (other than the fact that honda stopped making this car) is the lack of room for the rear passengers. Other than that, the prelude ROCKS!!

Awesome and almost perfect

by Street Racer Pro from Chicago | September 23, 2008

This is an awesome car. It has a nice sporty feel to it. Hugs the road at high speeds. Not much room in back seat but tons in front. Love the body style of the car. Best part is it comes in semi auto so you can manualy shift. I get tons of faces when im driving. Would not trade for anything. Love the car.
