thinking about buying a 5th gen

ive been looking for a new car for a couple months now and on the way home from a hockey game i saw a 5th gen prelude sitting outside. i always liked them but never really knew much about them. i read a couple threads trying to learn some things about them but i decided to make this thread anyway.

anyway, i was just wondering about some things like their usual life expectancy and any problems that are common. the one im looking at is a nice piece with like 114k mostly highway miles. i read the one thing about the timing belt needing to be replaced which he did already. i need a car thats reliable because i cant really work on it while im at school and i dont feel like bringing it to the shop everytime something goes wrong with it. thanks for the help

5th gens are amazing. i own a base model and love it. they last as long as you want them too as long as you stay up to date on the maitenance and the normal check ups. 1 thing that i know happens to some of the 5th gens though is the transmission, like mine. i konw a few people who have manuals whos transmission went out before. but mostly from agressive driving. if its a manual though im sure it wont be a problem, becuase ive never heard of anyone i know that blew there manual tranny. hope that helped a little bit.


any pics of the car your looking to get? color? base model or sh?
