    Honda- The Real Dream Car — I bought this car in Aug of 06, and i absolutely love it. It was my affordable dream car back when i owned a saturn sl2 and still is. My prelude has been the best handling FWD car ive ever owned. Ive taken it on several backroads and raced it in autocross and even had it on a few tracks and it has only exhibited a minimal amount of understeer when i really push it. The car will stop on a dime, the brakes are great and really inspire confidence when in a difficult situation. I know the prelude was only given a 4 cyl. but the H22A4 accelerates just like a v6. I drove a 97 accord v6 not too long ago and it would out perform it easy. The build quality is solid, ive owned it for 2 years and havent had a problem with it. Its very easy to modify too, ive spent many summer afternoons outside tinkering w/ my car trying to squeeze out a little more performance. The car looks great, even when dirty. Sometimes i look outside and think "wow, i cant believe i own one of these". Even when im out in public, i will get comments on how the car looks. Every now and then someone will drive by and say "hey, nice car" or smile or even turn their head and follow the car. Gas mileage is subjective, based on how much of a lead foot you are but my gas mileage has been about 23-24 in the city and about 26-28 on the highway, although i did get 30mpg on a trip back home from college once. The car will use about a quart of oil between oil changes but again thats a subjective thing based on how much you hit vtec b/c vtec uses oil pressure to move the solenoid. As ive said, the car is a blast to drive. Inspires confidence in the corners, accelerates like a v6, stops great, looks great. Amazing car all around

    Pros: Acceleration, braking, handling

    Cons: occasionally uses some oil, the SH model can be tough to work on

    Honda Prelude — Car looks amazing. Sounds wicked with the custom exhaust. Fun to drive. Pretty good performance for a 2.2L n/a. 200hp stock. 5spd. H22's could have been more reliable as far as cam seals go. Really wish the engine was able to handle boost better then it does without

    Pros: Great looks.  Lots of parts.  Decent performance

    Cons: FWD.  H22A should have been build a bit stronger for forced induction

    '00 Lude Sh — Great overall car. Its quick and the v-tec rocks. Holds up great as long as you keep up with normal maintenance. The inside is comfortable and is very user friendly. Honda parts are cheap if your into modding or if u mess something up. I get about 29 mpg with normal city and hwy driving but I can get 34 if I drive slow with the windows up. Fun to drive and lasts forever. Deff worth the money.

    Pros: Cheap, fast, lasts forever

    Cons: Could be faster but hey... poor mans sports car

    Pretty Good Car For The Price — pretty decent performance for a fwd car, the mpg isn't as good as you'd expect from a 4 cylinder though.

    Pros: looks good, great quality, good power, decent mpg

    Cons: fwd, replacement parts are too expensive, interior is kinda boring

    !0 Year Old Design But Still Is Better Than Some Of The New Cars Around. — Acceleration is very smooth stock. The car is beautiful. Nothing else much to say because most people already know about this car.

    Pros: Design, Top end, Great handling, Perfect view from driver seat

    Cons: A little heavy but that's pretty much it.

    This Car Is Awesome! — 195 hp monster! Cloth seats, trip-tronic tranny, and a lead foot make this car go zoom! Pretty fast!

    Pros: Great looking car, easy to drive.

    Cons: Suck gas like no tomorrow.  Plus, it uses premium!!  If you can afford the gas, it is still worth it!

    Torque Steering — Bought the car in May of last year. Burnt out the valves by November of last year. Been broken since. (I'm broke). Vehicle has all the pros and cons I listed. The clutch is short on this vehicle making it really nice to just shift and ease back. No real drop if you let off fast (if you let off completely then of course you'll slam your tranny). I'll be getting my lude back in a few months, with the addons that I can get without throwing horsepower into it (mostly handling).

    Pros: Can come out of a turn earlier than a RWD in some cases.
    Doesn't really dip.
    Has 200 stock hp. A little better than what those rotten Celicas have.
    Honda's tester vehicle. All the technologies that Honda wanted to test were pretty much dumped into this vehicle.
    Powerful brakes.
    A shifting assist.

    Cons: Weak valves. Usually the first to go with redlining.
    Weak low end.
    ATTS not compatible with turbo or higher horsepower modifications.

    Great! — Only problem I have is the lack of power and rear or all wheel drive.

    Pros: Great handling, factory sound system, and decent gas economy.

    Cons: Lacks torque and is quite heavy.
