Great car

I own a 1996 Honda prelude and it has ran like a champ. They are all made in japan. 200k This vehicle is well worth the money. My day had a 93 honda prelude and i was on my way home doing 45 mph. A van ran a red light, I smashed into the van. The car is totaled but im alive. the car was not crushed in. Everything was still intact. Plus you just can't beat vtec. Think about it, once the h22 (2.2L dohc) hits vtec, a huge cam is engaged opening up the valves. 197 hp 161 tq (h22a) japan. And they handle very well.
