It's Mine And I Love It. — Performance- Accelerates quick, has really good braking and hadling. Build Quality- The engine needs some work, but it's good overall. Appearance- Car looks mean, inside is nice as well. Cost of Ownership- 32 mph, not hard to work on. Fun Factor- I would live in this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a Honda.... Duh.

Cons: You'll get smoked.

Geat Car, Wish I Could Find Another One. — Bought a used one in 1986. Loved it and sold it with about 200k miles and running strong. I love the look of the car and found another one in 2003 that only had 42k miles. Someone recently pulled out in front of my son and now insurance company says it is a total loss. I want to fix it but body shop says they can't find parts. Miss it already.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sharp looking, good handling

Cons: Hard to find replacement parts

A Great Car - Wish I Still Had It. — This was a great car! It handled well, and more importantly, wore well. Even at 200,000 miles, it was still solid. No squeaks or rattles, no leaks, and only minor repairs. It had the classic style that I preferred before the Prelude went to the "wedge" shape.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: Have to put up with a carburetor

My First Car — My first car bought used at Honda U-car dealer(Setagaya, Tokyo). Compact coupe, 5MT, 1800cc CVCC engine(efficient but weak). Fully equipped with glass sun-roof, power windows, trip computer. Needed minutes to warm-up in winter. Buddy Jun O. drove the same car.

Pros: fully equipped

Cons: weak non-injection engine
