2000 Honda Prelude

The S2000 is sportier, but the 2000 Honda Prelude still isn't bad. The overview? It comes with a 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engine, that, when combined with a manual engine at 7000 RPMs, gives you 200 HP!!!

It also has dual overhead camshafts and Honda's special VTEC variable-valve-timing system. All in all, the 2000 Honda Prelude has great acceleration, steering, and handling and music lovers really enjoy the standard six-speaker audio system.

But really. It is outdated. And it's still kind of expensive for a six-year old car at around $9,500 to $12,000. Drivers complain about the noise factor - especially in the back and many say that the manual transmission is far superior to the automatic.
