Awesome Four Banger — The car is stylish, handles well, has 200 hp stock, and just a blast to drive. I think next to the S2000 the prelude SH is one of the best cars honda built for performance, handling and reliability hands down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

1998 Honda Prelude — Awesome handling for a FWD car. Interior was very nice. Back seat could have used a tad more room. I slightly modded this car and took it on many fast dries around the hill country. Fun car, but FWD really kills it. Still, if I had to have a FWD sporty car, I would choose another Lude over a Integra Type R (or RSX) or the other turbo varieties out there.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling for FWD, good power, very nice looking ride

Cons: FWD.

I Pretty Much Love This Car. — Temperamental clutch, but once you get past that, its pretty much a ton of fun to drive the car. I absolutely love everything about this car and would reccommend it to just about anyone, especially if you like Hondas. a

Pros: It looks nice, gets decent gass mileage, and is fun to drive.

Cons: The clutch was hard to get used to.

Honda Prelude — This car was one of the best cars you could ask for. It handled like it was on rails and caught the eye of most everyone who was around. Not your typical car. It was a darn shame that Honda discontinued production of this beautiful car in 2001. I hope they bring it back in years to come, because they will always have a buyer in me. -Mike Owner of 1989 Si and 1998 Base

Pros: Build Quality, Handling, Appearance

Cons: Cost, Lack of changes over the years

Honda Prelude Type Sh — Sick fast and it has the "super handling" package so it cornered like it was on rails. It had performance Intake, header, exhaust, coilover suspension, strut bar...great car to modify. It looked gorgeous, got good gas mileage and halled ass. Great "driver's car" It wasn't fun to get in and out of, but once you were in it you never wanted to get out.

Pros: Amazing performance, Fuel Efficient, Sexy car, DOHC VTEC motor

Cons: Front wheel drive. So low to the ground that getting in and out of it everyday turned in to a workout. This was because of the coilovers though not the factory's fault
