    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

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The Super Handling gives this front wheel drive superb corning ability.

    Cons: Back seat is a little tight for a family of 4.

    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

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: If you like to drive a real car

    Cons: winters

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: An uncommon sight, fun to drive, superb handling, great 4 cyl power, excellent craftsmanship.

    Cons: Limited trunk/rear seating space. Premium fuel only.

    2000 Honda Prelude — This car is pretty amazing, it is very fun to drive in and with the exhaust I have in mine as you can see in the picture has an incredible sound. The car is small yet still comfortable and I know that it will last me for a long time.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun to drive, reliable

    Cons: takes premium gas, and doesnt have a lot of headroom

    Very Good Car. Fun To Drive And Looks Sexy!! — just bought my type sh prelude a couple of months ago, and it handles almost like my 89 mr2(dream). it is decent on gas and is really fun to drive. it is a lot more powerful than you would expect in a v4. reliable, but the vavles are going, minor replacement for an otherwise great car to have,interior and exterior wise.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: awesome handling, great power for a v4

    Cons: valves are a little weak, takes premium gas only

    Go Get It — Handling and Cost of Ownership make this a stellar first car for wannabe drivers (not commuters and drag racers). Build Quality is bullet-proof Honda, sips fuel and I used only half a tank while in constant VTEC mode on a full trackday of 4 separate 20min sessions!! Fun Factor - unmatched (since you don't have reliability problems to spoil that fun)

    Pros: VTEC and the handling  - foolishly fantastic

    Cons: Can u think of any good ones? Maybe power, but it's adequate too.

    Honda Prelude — Love driving this car. Not a whole lot of power (175whp), but it's only a 4-banger. Gets about 29-30 in mixed driving. Corners like it's on rails, the ATTS really helps take a lot of the FWD understeer bias out of the car. My only gripe is space and of course, that the wrong wheels are connected to the engine.

    Pros: Handling, looks, fuel efficiency

    Cons: Small car, not RWD
