1999 Honda Prelude Base 2.2L VTEC from North America
Everyone I know wants one, too bad they are pricey
Nothing has gone wrong with the car.
An aftermarket stereo system was hard to install due to the standard "Acoustic Feedback System", additional work needed to be done, but it was very much. Also, lots of speakers do not fit the rear deck due to the trunk hinges. Sony Xplodes and Fosgates, for example.
The 30K and 60K mile services were on the expensive side at about $410-440 each.
Amazing vehicle. 200HP yet 30-31mpg on highway trips. VTEC engine noise past 5000RPM is thrilling. Low-end power isn't the best, but its much better than Civic or Integra VTEC's. Handles flat, makes you feel like you are in a race car, yet rides comfortably enough on city streets. Back seat is much larger than the last model and although not roomy, it is good for a 2+2 sports coupe. Trunk is decent, as is interior storage. Could be quieter on the highway, but then again, it's a sports coupe. I like the simple, logical interior. Seats are supportive. Steering is amazing. Visibility is good. Shifter is the best I've ever tried.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
