Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

I am looking at a 5th gen tomorrow and I am very interested in buying it if it is clean and in good shape. I have never driven a 5th gen (or prelude for that matter) and so I do not know the pros and cons of everything. What are the pros and cons? My main concerns are head room (is there enough room for you to sit and not hit your head?), general comfort, any other pros and cons.

Your input is greatly appreciated!


Thanks
Brad

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

Well pros.... Everything about the car is amazing! You'll fall in love!!!

Cons.... Ummm I think oil useage. The H22 burns a lot of oil but that's nothing compaired to other cars. Just keep it well maintained, make sure your oil levels are good and you'll be fine.

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

I have no complaints about head room. I'm 6'4". My buddy owns a 5th gen. also and he's 6'7" and seems to do fine with his seat leaned back a little farther. Def. good leg room though (which surprised me a lot for being a coupe).

A couple things that I would complain about: They do tend to burn oil a little bit at high mileage.

I personally can't seem to find a comfy spot to keep my left arm at when driving no matter how I adjust my seat. An adjustable seat belt (where it comes out by your shoulder, not sure what that's actually called) would be nice, it tends to dig into me a bit on long car rides. And the rear view mirror seems like it blocks a little more of the windshield than most other cars I've owned in the past. <--- That's just me being really, really picky though.

Biggest thing I tell a lot of people looking into the 5th gens though. It's good on gas, but it's def. not the most gas efficient car ever. Only being able to use premium gas starts to really suck after a while! I drive about 65-80 miles a day between work and school, 5 days a week. I'll get about 300-325 miles on a tank of gas if I try to stay away from VTECing it up to much. Again, not bad, but I miss the 400+ I could get out of my 94 Accord sometimes.

Overall, I love my car to death! (As I'm sure everyone on this site will say.) The only way I'd ever consider selling it would be to buy something a little more fuel efficient that uses regular gas like a Fit or Civic. Good luck with the test drive, you'll love the car!

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

Yeah as Warganes stated, gas is good but not great, however it is a sports car so considering that it isnt so bad compared to the 18mpg other cars get compared to our 20-25mpg we get city. as long as you maintain the car and make sure you always check the oil level your car will run smooth. and good job deciding to not get an auto tranny.

overall as for a daily driver and a track car, its great for both and very versatile. it will turn heads no matter where you go, loud exhaust or not. but if you want to keep it for a while you of course have to keep it in check. just like any other sports car out there.

have fun with it and goodluck and when you get it POST PICS OF THAT BEAUTY!!

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

my complaints with my 5th gen is not having an adjustable seat belt, all of my other cars had them but beggers cant be choosers. its good on gas but not the greatest and with my lead foot with the h22 it burns oil alittle quicker. id also suggest trying to get as close to bone stock as you can, cause you never know what shortcuts people have done to get the aftermarket parts into the car.

if your looking to mod the car, try and get a base model since they are alittle easier to mod. but if you just want it and dont have plans get the SH which will automatically come with the manual tranny. i definately love my 5th gen and wouldnt think of getting another gen, well maybe a 3rd

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

Pros: quick, damn sexy, fun

cons: burns oil, fwd (can be a pro or con depending on how you look at it), headroom

I'm 6'2 and I can't really sit up straight

it's not tooo uncomfortable but I do have to lean my seat back a little and if we go over a large bump I will hit my head... (but the roof isn't too hard :P)

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

Some pros and cons that i can think of:

Cons: Burns oil, no real cupholders, no real bolt-ons will give alot of horsepower gain

Pros: Engine pulls strongly, car is comparatively very rare, the look is timeless and sexy as hell!

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

Pros:Sexy, strong motor, roomy for driver and front passenger, awesome cupholders!

Cons:Burns oil, has a crappy auto tensioner which can fail causing your timing belt to break(Don't worry you can buy a manual tensioner kit which solves the problem), It is a bit heavy.

There are plenty more pros but I don't have time to say the rest.

Why in god's name would you want it to be a rotary? Maybe you meant to put Not Rotary in the Pros?? I mean, I LOVE the FC and FD, but I always hear that those engines are breaking down all the time, so everytime I see a rx7 owner I ask him which engine he is on lol.

The squeek is from the radius rods, replace the bushings and tighten problem gone. Well until those bushings dry rot and fatigue and then you'll have to do it again.

Re: Pros and Cons of Owning a 5th Gen

Part Detail)

Here are the OEM replacements but yes I would say they probably make poly urethane if your that serious. but think about it how old is the car and its just now a problem, plus its a pretty cheap part.

*by the way you will be looking at part #'s 8, 23, 14, 16, 15, 11, 12, 25. If you look at req q it suggests you buy enough to do both sides, But I bet you could just replace the bushings both sides for $30.66 plus shipping*
