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

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.

Pros

The stock buckets, front and back are amazing. Great handling car.

Cons

Transmission

Prelude — The H22 is a solid motor but the stock transmission, manual or auto, is crap. The car looks great. The lines make it look mean. The v_tec would be great if the tranmission worked. Also im blowing soot out of the exhaust. What gives?

Sporty And Nice — This car is fun to drive i have had it for 4 years and the only down side is that it takes premium fuel. The car runs smooth and is reliable. If you want a car with great handling and a sporty look this car is for you.

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

Great looks.  Lots of parts.  Decent performance

Cons

FWD.  H22A should have been build a bit stronger for forced induction

Honda Prelude — Car looks amazing. Sounds wicked with the custom exhaust. Fun to drive. Pretty good performance for a 2.2L n/a. 200hp stock. 5spd. H22's could have been more reliable as far as cam seals go. Really wish the engine was able to handle boost better then it does without
