1999 Honda Prelude Overview

The 1999 Honda Prelude, along with the other Preludes, is considered by some to be the poor man's Lamborghini. And one can see why. The 2.2-liter engine, with dual overhead camshafts, has four valves in each cylinder and multi-point programmed fuel injection. All this means is that the 1999 Honda Prelude offers big impact and super revving speeds.

The twin bucket seats, the great stereo sound system, and the cool new mesh grille, all contribute to the car's appeal.

Also, this year, Honda introduced the new torque transfer system, which helps the cornering characteristics of a rear-wheel-drive vehicle on one that applies power to the front wheels. But only on the SH model.

    My steering wheel 'play' gets rough every year when the temp drops. Moving the wheel beyond the 11:00 and 1:00 positions requires extra effort. Seems like it's more than just fluid. Ideas?
