1993 Honda Prelude SRS 2.3 litre twin cam
Great example of Honda engineering. Highly recommend
The paint on the roof is slightly faded.
Electric aerial mast thread is shredded (though the motor is fine).
Apart from these minor details, nothing!
I love this car! This review might be a bit early cause I've only had the car about 3 months, but I had to write something!
Performance is great, and this isn't even the V-TEC version. There is always enough torque to pull away in any gear. You don't have to change down gear to overtake. Everything is very responsive.
It handles amazingly! The closest handling car I've ever driven is a 2001 MX-5.
Front seats are fine (thank god they're bucket seats!) but the back 2 (not 3) are a joke; something Honda threw back there for the hell of it. Wouldn't recommend riding back there for a long trip at all. But hell, it's a sports car not a limo!
Very cool instrument panel that allows you a good view of the road. Digital petrol gauge is a great idea ('this trip took three bars of petrol') and it's a mystery why it's not on newer cars.
Only interior complaint is there's no damn cup holder!
Overall this is a great car! I feel confident in saying now, early on, that I will enjoy it for years to come. Specially with that famed Honda reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The early 90's Honda vehicles are what gave the company such high marks for reliability, they were light years ahead of the competition in regards to manufacturing quality and attention to product detail. Take care of this car and it should easily last you another 150,000 miles or more. Good luck!
