Wrong things...

Hey everyone, I just had some questions about an 01 Lude. Its going to be my 1st Honda, 3rd in the family (my aunt has a 92 Legend and my sister has a 2007 Accord). Anyway, I just wanted to know the known problems of the 5th gens. The one I'm planing on getting is a 5 speed with 66,588 miles on it. I'm going to go see it tomorrow. By the pics of it, it looks like it has a custom intake and an aftermarket intake manifold. I never understood what made Honda's so great. If anyone can please explain to me because I really want to know. Thanks...

Re: Wrong things...

Just the usual checks mate, service history, accident damage, etc. If it's got aftermarket gear such as the intake manifold, see if it's been tuned properly.

Re: Wrong things...

alot of things make hondas great but preludes in general are way more sophisticated then your civics and accords.

as far as problems... well every car has its issues once in awhile. brash is right get some documents on whats been done....judging by the milage not much should have been done but, since that car is 7 years old i would check the ignition tune up checked and see if the honda recalls have been corrected. yes base model preludes have 5 recalls.

Re: Wrong things...

Hondas are known to have superior engines that can last and last and last, and if taken care of properly will last well over 200,000 miles, I have driven one that has just over 300k miles!! (306,385 was what it was at on Saturday when I got to drive it last)

Just ask Thomas how good our H22 engines are!!

Re: Wrong things...

People like them because they run forever, and then some.

Re: Wrong things...

One of the most over looked things people miss on Hondas are the muffler bearings. Always make sure it's lubed. Also ask the owner if he replaced within the last 4,000k.

Re: Wrong things...

Cool guys much appreciated. I'm going down to the dealer today to take a look and do a test drive. Like I said, I have Honda's in the family, I just never owned one. The Legend drives like a dream (even before I ran some Sea Foam through it) and now its just a beast at 175,000 miles. I can't wait to get this girl.

Re: Wrong things...

The Prelude rides as well as the Accord, so you get that comfort, but it has more power (I4 vs I4) and a much more aggressive handling package.
The reliability is amazing if it's taken care of.
