Considering buying a Prelude

I am currently driving a Jeep Wrangler (12-18 MPG) and with gas prices increasing I have been looking at some more economical vehicles; however, I also want something relatively "sporty". I really like the 5th gen Preludes, and I am considering purchasing one. What should I look for, and what should I stray away from with these cars? Just looking for some general information. Sorry about the newbish post.

Thanks in advance

look for timingbelt service w/ cars over 90k.
also look out for oil consumption.

they are great cars that are good on gas, when you keep 'em outta vtec.

Well Prelude are fairly expensive cars with a good amount of miles on them... so ur gonna spend some money on buying this car... if u find a good deal on a prelude grab it immediately.... id look for the owner, if it is a younger owner most likely he/she put a lil more stress onn that car then a grandma has... id also buy a 5spd manual i had to replace my auto trans and i had the car since december and it cost alot.

I went from a 92 jeep yj 4.0 to my 01 prelude, You will save a bit on gas but not a whole lot especially when you add on the price of premium gas. Some days i miss the jeep, but I really love the prelude
