Bored and found this a guy who reviewed a 2001 Prelude on carreview.com:

"Strengths: Man nothing about this car is good!

Weaknesses: ok i really dont know where to begin describing this piece of junk for about 30,000. First of all, what kind of a bs is Honda playing on us, charging 30k for this piece of junk! arent new cars supposed to be powerful and smooth??? well i bought mine last week and this mess is a junk! I should have definetely bought the new Tiburon, where all you pay is 15,000 (half of a lude) for leather, sun roof, great shifting and mean power, great premium sound system, nice smooth ride, low tone muffler, and tons more!. Who has seen a car where you have to pay for such basic accessories such as sunroof, cup holders, leather, alloy wheels, when you are paying 30grand!!! this is insane waste of money! the vtec engine is not all that powerful and i think a tiburon would definitely smoke it. (if you dont think so, go test drive one and you will know what i know). The design is too blocky, and stiff and the interior rattles too much! the back seat construction is very poorly done and the brakes failed on me already and i have had this car for 10 days!!!! the shifting of 5 speed is too rough and the car jerks when you shift up. And i have been driving stick for 10 years so i know what a bad manual transmission is. Please if you are buying a car, dont buy this 100% lemon. Prelude is a lemon!

Compared To: have test drove a Tiburon. Tiburon is a heaven and a driver's dream come true for the great price and the warranty. I was going to buy the tiburon but i was forced to pay 30k for this junk when i could have had 2 wonderful tiburons in yellow and silver!
also have testdrove a celica and celicas are wonderful too

Review Summary: Honda Preludes are a fraud! do not get tricked into buying this lemon for the fact that it has a Vtec engine. The vtec is a fraud also. this mess, i dont know what to do with. i wanna get rid of this car fast and buy me a tiburon. If you are interested in buying my prelude, email me at:
[email protected] ; i only have 200 miles on my prelude. i will sell it cheap, about 15,000 dollars, half of what i paid. I hate this junk!!!!"


---This guy must be a retard for paying 30k for a Prelude

Sam,

The fraud here is not Honda...lol.


This guy obviously does NOT own a Prelude.

It appears he owns a Tiburon, and is just slamming on the Prelude for fun. Anyone who would pay $30K would win the "Most taken advantange of by a dealer" award for this decade.

The guy is simply just a fraud, and who knows, he may not even own a car, but just doesn't like Hondas.

Here's his email:- [email protected]
Also, I'm sure he must have bought a defective Prelude.

Here is a link to all the people who reviewed the Prelude. It ranges from all Gen's of Lude, not just the 5th. The interesting thing about these reviews is that they're mainly unbiased b/c most of these drivers/reviewers are into modding their car. http://www.carreview.com/reviews/sports_cars/product_192.shtml

Thank YOU! I was going to make this comment if I didn't see it!

Puhleeeeze...this guy wishes he could afford to own a nice prelude, but he can't...so, in a fit of envy he went and read all the gripes about preludes and decided to trash on them....

even better...he's probably a tiburon owner who, for fun, wanted to start an argument


what a lllLLLLOOOOWHOOOOWHOOOOOSSSEEEEER!

Tiburons come with a huge combat wing that doesnt even go with the rest of ugly ass body. The thing has like 3 headlights on both sides too. Whoever designed the car needs to be shot. The only people that buy those tirburons are people that work at supermarkets for some reason.

While the Tiburon is ugly, I think it's a decent car for the money (I have no clue about the reliability on the new Hyundais though.) It is faster and feels sportier than say... a Civic EX, Focus ZX3 or Corolla S.

Then again, for that money I'd probably get one of those new Sentra SEs.
