Pros

the looks of it, the honda reliabilty combined with the more then usual power you would expect from honda, its pretty quick.

Cons

the interior is rather small, it doesnt have alot of torque and the gas mileage is not the best.

Reliable And Quick But Not Fast Enough To Break Itself , Good Buy — Over all this car is pretty nice it never breaks and it looks like a very sharp car as well, its 200 hp 2.2 l vtec is pretty quick but you have to wait till 5000 rpms before its fast could have used a little more torque but its desent, reliable and looks good gas mileage could be better but better then truck gas mileage. small interior though

Fun Car For 2 — Great car, very fun to drive with its high reving v tec dohc engine. However the high reving does lead to a higher fuel consumption. SH makes this a fun car to drive hard into the corners as the ATTS pulls you through where a normal FF would be understeering.

Great Car, They Should Make Another One — Love my car- overall performance is great. Built solid, over 100k miles and it still runs like new and looks like it is a new car. price of ownership isn't very high, typical regualr maintenance. Love taking it out on a curvy road or somewhere I can really open her up and let her CAMS sing

One Of Honda's Better Creations That Needs To Make A Return To The Auto World. — By far one of the funnest cars to drive ever. Low center of gravity, wide frame and excellent handling makes you want to do 50 on every exit ramp. The 2.2L 4 cylinder DOHC VTEC under the hood is a lovely high revver redlining at 7400 RPM and pushing out 200HP (156 ft-lb tq.); which before the S2000 was definitely something worth noting in the 4-cylinder compact market. The exterior aesthetics are to this day beautiful and appealing with cars like the 1st generation Ford Fusion taking hints from it. The build is very strong and sturdy, making it a little heavier sports compact (about 3042 lbs in curb weight). However it maintains an acceptable 22-27 MPG...on Premium fuel. The only problem I ran into was rear seating space. It is truly recommended for small adults or children as it is very confined.

2000 Honda Prelude — This car is pretty amazing, it is very fun to drive in and with the exhaust I have in mine as you can see in the picture has an incredible sound. The car is small yet still comfortable and I know that it will last me for a long time.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very Good Car. Fun To Drive And Looks Sexy!! — just bought my type sh prelude a couple of months ago, and it handles almost like my 89 mr2(dream). it is decent on gas and is really fun to drive. it is a lot more powerful than you would expect in a v4. reliable, but the vavles are going, minor replacement for an otherwise great car to have,interior and exterior wise.

VTEC and the handling  - foolishly fantastic

Cons

Can u think of any good ones? Maybe power, but it's adequate too.

Go Get It — Handling and Cost of Ownership make this a stellar first car for wannabe drivers (not commuters and drag racers). Build Quality is bullet-proof Honda, sips fuel and I used only half a tank while in constant VTEC mode on a full trackday of 4 separate 20min sessions!! Fun Factor - unmatched (since you don't have reliability problems to spoil that fun)

Honda Prelude — Love driving this car. Not a whole lot of power (175whp), but it's only a 4-banger. Gets about 29-30 in mixed driving. Corners like it's on rails, the ATTS really helps take a lot of the FWD understeer bias out of the car. My only gripe is space and of course, that the wrong wheels are connected to the engine.
