The last generation Honda Prelude is a gifted, though eccentric, sports coupe. Developed through previous generations as a test-bed for Honda technology, this last iteration continues the trend, showcasing the ATTS superior handling system (Type-SH) driven by the spunky 200HP H22A motor. In addition to the vehicle's performance, the angled looks of the car body has always been an attractive sight to see. Unfortunately though, the car is simply a coupe, and a small one at that. Practicality suffers, as the backseats are nearly useless, and usable space within the car is fairly low overall. If you can get past the practicality issues, the car drives and handles quite well, and has always been fun for me.
Story
Miraculously being able to fit all party supplies in the car (some items were hanging out of the trunk) to relocate a party late one night.
Pros
The top positive things about the last generation Prelude are it's superior handling characteristics, body styling, and motor.
Cons
The largest cons for the Prelude would be it's lack of interior space, and higher maintenance costs as the car ages.

2001 Honda Prelude - This vehicle is very reliable and it is enjoyable to drive, with decent gas mileage.

This vehicle is very reliable and it is enjoyable to drive, with decent gas mileage. The vehicle is over 15 years old and has barely had maintenance on it, but it still runs and performs very well. When I first got it I had to get used to how low it sits in traffic, and it is difficult to see ahead on the road. The seating is adequate, as I do not have children to carry around, but this vehicle is a great coupe. The trunk space is very generous considering the size of the vehicle. The ride quality is very comfortable and I have enjoyed travelling in trips over 1,000 miles.
Story
I once squeezed 3 people, 1 adult cat, 6 kittens and 2 large dogs in the vehicle for a 800 mile trip across multiple states. During this trip, the vehicle was also packed with a lot of luggage. The vehicle had no problems, but it wasn't very comfortable!
Pros
The moon roof/sun roof combination is incredibly convenient. I enjoy the cruise control and all power doors, windows and locks. The performance of the engine is incredible and I have no issues when I need to negotiate slower traffic. The gas mileage is great for the level of power the engine provides. The overall vehicle size is great for parking in tight spaces. The vehicle provides a good level of comfort for long trips on the road. I am beyond satisfied with the trunk space available.
Cons
The automatic transmission has mechanical problems, and is noted by the manufacturer. It has been replaced already at 100,000 miles, but it is already beginning to go bad and the car is around 150,000 miles now. This is a troublesome area. The paint on the outside weather-stripping for the doors is peeling off, exposing bare metal. The stock CD player is beginning to die and the volume knob is about 25% reliable at this point. I would have bought a manual transmission version of this vehicle if I knew better before buying the automatic transmission version.

1991 Honda Prelude - Good on gas, but not much else.

The prelude could've been a good car if the previous owner had taken the time to properly maintain it. But, since it was not taken care of (and it has several defects already), it had a number of issues. The gas mileage was great, which is pretty much the only advantage to the car. It was smaller in size so it was also easier to park than a larger car, I guess. But the engine had some issues. It had a defect that was well publicized by other Honda Prelude owners. The air sensor had a large amount of carbon build up, causing it to rev up unexpectedly and consume more gas than it should. The muffler had at least one hole in it, so it was much louder than it should have been. On the roof and doors of the car, the paint had begun to peel very badly - I think from prolonged exposure to UV r... (more)
Story
I didn't really have any fun or memorable stories to share. I just drove it to work and home every day.
Pros
It had a sunroof, which was kind of nice. It also had power doors and windows. The car lasted much longer than I thought it would, despite the fact that it was not maintained at all. It had great gas mileage and was easy to maneuver and park due to it's small size.
Cons
Its sensors were prone to failure, so that contributed to the failure of the engine quicker than it should fail. It caused the fuel consumption to be higher than normal and the engine to rev up too high and caused the driving quality to be pretty low. It required a lot of maintenance that I wasn't able to keep up with, but had I been able to maintain it, it would have been a good little car. The coolant system was prone to leakages too and the A/C system quit working entirely.
