"I own a 2001 base 5sp prelude - red with only 59K miles. Completely stock. Drives even better now than in '01. Only driven about 4200 miles per year. In 2025, it should only have about 100K miles. Zero rust - body looks amazing."

Nice and really reliable car no problem.

"Best car I have so far. Never break down on me or give me a hard time. Just got marriage and needed a automatic car for the family. Just trying to sell it for the best price and get a new car. Thank you."

"I have always owned a 5spd car and driving the prelude was by far my favorite. It is quick and speedy and easy to drive. It doesn't have much space for a car seat so unfortunately I grew out of the 2D coupe prelude stage of my life but my "Lexus" was fun while it lasted. Honda should make a new and improved version of the prelude!"

"Honda designed this car for people who love to drive, the handling is unbelievable. It's not a muscle car, no big engine with loads of horsepower, but the engine does respond well, and when the variable valve feature kicks in, you get a real kick in the seat of the pants."

"My third Prelude. Perfect size for my wife and me(and daughter on occasion). Handsome styling in opposition to the latest styling fads. Find myself admiring it every day.Simple car with all real necessities; no electric "everythings" that just add cost and hurt reliability. If mileage becomes an issue I'll search out a low mileage example and start over!"
