"I fell in love with this car ('95 Si) when this model first came out and bought brand new in May 1995. It has been a love affair ever since. Even at 378k miles, she still runs great and looks great...wish Honda would start production again on this model. Though the pic is from 2008, it still looks that good. Even with all the miles it can get up to 29mpg. It still runs great although has started burning oil in the past 2 years. The only serious problem I had with it over the years was when the oxygen sensor went bad in 2010. I would recommend the Prelude to anyone looking for sleek, sexy, awesome cornering, great performance, and reliability. Just be sure the owner has good maintenance records on it. I won't be selling mine...EVER!! When the time comes, I will have it rebuilt and restored. My rating is 10+ !!!"

"I have to say, this is an awesome car! I use this as my commuter car because it goes very well, but i still get 35-40 MPG so i can't complain. I've had very few problems, New engine and transmission put in at 203K miles, now at 345K miles, it still runs runs and looks great."

"I personally own 2 Red 4th gen 5 speed Honda Preludes. It is a sickness that takes over your mind. Once you own one Prelude, the only thing better is having two. Honda reliability, cutting-edge performance, unique futuristic design, high performance engine capabilities all highlight this car. I can honestly say this car saved my life more than one time. I have heard of bad luck preludes, but I think mine's good luck. I love Preludes so much that I got one for my little bro as well. Mine is a 1995 2.3 Liter Si, his is 1993 2.2 Liter VTEC. The Si comes with around 160 Horsepower stock, and the VTEC has around 190. I have owned mine for 4 years. I've had to put a lot of money into it over the years, but she has treated me well. Some repairs include, a new Stage 2 clutch, new radiator, valve cover gasket, distributor, master and slave cylinders, axles, control arms, tires, etc. This car has actually paid itself off as well as any repairs, and even left me with a little cash in my pocket. My '95 Si has been involved in a few different accidents, and the insurance companies have paid me over $6,000. I only had liability the entire time I've owned it, so I got lucky on all those accidents. My car never really sustained much damage in any of the accidents. I have seen this car do amazing things, it has remarkable handling capabilities, and with the right suspension setup, this car can handle like it's on rails. It is a timeless design, and a truly beautiful car. This car will do more than get you from point A to point B. This is an epic ride, that is often overlooked in today's car marketplace."

"Just bought my Honda Prelude a few days ago. It is also my first car and I couldn't be happier! I fell in love with it the second I got it!! Hondas are by far the best cars. It's nice to see that all my guy friends think I did a really good job picking out this car since I'm a girl :)"
