01 Prelude Sh — Great performance, sick engine, one of a kind car. My insurance has been through the roof (high theft rate car) but SO worth it & she retains value exceptionally well. Car has high visibility & plenty of after market performance parts available.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: head turning looks, killer performance & handling, one of a kind

Cons: Gas guzzler in VTEC mode, insurance rate

A Quiet Legend Thats Affordable, Fun, And Attractive —

The honda prelude is a timeless classic. The styling never seems to look obsolete and its low profile proves to be quite aerodynamic, helping to give this car an acceptional MPG rating while maintaining an adequate level of performance. The 2.2L DOHC VTEC engine (now obsolete to Honda's new I VTEC) still proves to be competitive, and is a primary reason why this car is fun to drive. This car just screams after 5200 rpms, and nothing feels better than coming right out of a turn and hitting the VTEC range (5200-7500* rpms). The base car handles well and the SH model is very good. The only downfall to the Prelude is its drivetrain, grant it, the front wheel drive does well in the snow and helps foster a reasonable MPG rating, but I'm sure most prelude owners would be willing to give up some MPG for an SH-AWD version. For the price, you can't go wrong with a Prelude, its not the fastest or purest of sporty cars, but its a great, forgiving, reliable, car that is perfect for learning how to drive at a higher level of performance. The only bad side of the prelude is its pedal placement (not the best for heal to toe), rear seat room (but who cares about that), and leather can be hard to find. Personally I would prefer a pedal placement that is more race-inspired such as in the s2000 and an AWD version(with a turbo) but i guess that would be too perfect of a world.

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

Pros: Great engine/performance/Handling/Looks/MPG/Reliablity/Great for tall people

Cons: n the heavier side(compared to integras etc..) Pedal Placement

2001 Prelude — Aweosme car. Actually my gfs car, but i half maintain half drive it. Performance is great, a lil quicker then my tibby, better brakes, handles a lil better. Build quality is really dood like any honda, previous owners never maintained it though. Apperance is good, interior is okay. outside has a lil damage from previous brake in, but is georgeous other wise. gas milleage is good, with premium only fuel. Car is really fun to drive.. even to much fun.

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing.

Great Car — Awesome car for the price. I think this is one of the most overlooked Hondas out there. You can find em for 5k-10k ish which isn't bad for a 200 hp car. Decent handling. Reliable, easy to work with. 22-30 mpg. Unique

Pros: cost/speed ratio, appearance

Cons: less gas mileage that I would like, but still decent.

My Baby — that only thing i dont like is that its front wheel drive, but when i can out corner a BMW 3 series, that compensates for its lack of oversteer... it is without a doubt in my mind the best handling car that Honda has ever made(with the exception of the NSX) mileage would probably be around 20/30 if i drove like a normal person the shifter is sloppy but im fixing that...short throw...oh yeah

Pros: we eat Cobalts like candy

Cons: front wheel drive

2001 Prelude Sh — This car is being babied until we get enough money to start playing with it. It's fast and fun enough now but it can and will be faster in the future. It was a little pricey as Honda's hold their value very well and the Vtec engine only takes Premium Fuel but at this point, it's been worth it.

Pros: Custom-ability

Cons: Not fast enough - yet.

Prelude — The car rides really smooth. I like the comfort of it. The seats are really comfortable and the engine runs really smooth. I love my car. The engine sounds really nice. I bought it with an exhaust and a wing but took them off . With the muffler it had a really nice sound though.

Pros: Amazing

Cons: N/A

Honda Vtec — All around fun car to drive. Although horsepower level is a little low compared to what is out there now. The Transmission is not that great, compared to what Honda has running in their newer vehicles, such as the Acura TSX and Honda S2000.

Pros: Reliable, Good Looking, Fun to drive, decent handling car

Cons: Brakes and Transmission
