1986 Honda Prelude Overview

The 1986 Honda Prelude stayed largely the same from the previous year.

The base 1986 Honda Prelude came with a 100-horsepower, 1.8-liter four cylinder engine. The Si upgraded to a 2.0-liter. It also had a spoiler and plenty of interior features, like power windows and doors, cruise control, and a graphic equalizer on the sound system.

1986 Honda Prelude owners love their cars, saying they are extremeley reliable, suprisingly peppy, and very fun to drive. Some drivers have had a problem with rust and flaking paint, and many complain that the backseat is way too small.
