I am in the market for a new car and have come across a 99 prelude with 128 thousand miles on it. Previous owners were adults and the car runs great. It has the 5 speed manual trans and interior is perfect. The asking price is $6,300 with tax and fees. Any thing you guys think i should know about the car before i buy it? Any problems that are common around that millage and up?

Thanks

Shift through all the gears and make sure none grind both under load and not. Make sure the clutch still grabs fine and isn't slipping. Find out if it has had the timing belt, water pump, etc replaced. Once you drive it pull into a clean parking spot and let it idle for a couple minutes and then move it to see if it's leaking any oil. Make sure vtec engages and functions properly. That's about it off the top of my head.
