1982 Honda Prelude Base 1.8 from North America
Great reliable, unique car
Had to replace left rear control arm due to rust.
Rusted through floor in back. It should be pointed out thought that this is a 21 year old car that has spent 20 years by the beach.
Replaced brake master cylinder.
Previous owner replaced rear axle, clutch, exhaust.
For a 21 year old car it is great, especially since it is a Honda. Runs like a dream, but no performance machine.
Handles great, brakes well.
Not the most comfortable of cars, as it is about the size of a bathtub, and the backseat is really just an extended trunk.
Only paid $700 for it, as it was a beater, but it NEVER left me stranded or had major problems that wouldn't be expected from being by saltwater.
Still gets 25mpg city/28 highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
