1989 Honda Prelude 2.0 Si Coupe L4 DOHC
If I could make love to a car, it'd be this Prelude
My clutch is starting to slip at 83,000.
The brakes squeak a little.
The antennae doesn't retract.
My air conditioning unit isn't all that good. If I'm in neutral (at below 1000 RPM) the air conditioning unit makes the engine sound like it's dying.
There's a hole in the muffler, but I'm going to leave it there... it sounds GORGEOUS.
I absolutely love the way this car drives. I haven't driven many other vehicles, but this car beats the living daylights out of anything else I've ever tried.
This baby drives smoother than butter.
The turning/handling is incredible. Turning corners is literally like doing donuts.
The trunk is HUGE. I could probably fit like three to four bodies in there... I mean lots of groceries...
I have to say though that the seats aren't all that comfortable. I'm a bigger guy (like 6 feet, 220 lbs) and the racing-style seats really hug me a little tightly.
This car is strictly meant for two passengers (three is pushing it, but do-able). The backseat is beyond tiny. Legroom is non-existent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Honda Prelude is a great car with the handling and everything about it. But I have to say that there is not enough room in the trunk.

Think of the back seat as a large cargo area, 'cause it ain't gonna hold two people. By far the smallest rear-seat room since the '79 Sunbird/Skyhawk.
