I found a 5th gen prelude today at a car lot. it just got there and not a sticker or anything still has old tag. its red with spoiler, looks like an greddy evo catback exhaust. 5 speed nice interior and all. i was thinking about getting it. and the paint is perfect. should i get the 5th gen and sell the 4th or what? ill prob be able to get it for 5-7 k. lemme know what u all think

Wow... I'm really surprised so many 4th geners are saying to get it... most of you guys stick to your 4th gen roots pretty tight!

the only thing wrong with the 4th is that the title had to be pawned. cause i missed some time at work and need money for bills. but ill prob sell it for 2k or so
and use the money i get from selling it and go get the title for the buyer

the car looks similar to honda4life's prelude same color and all just no lip kit yet

Talk them down on a price. $8K is a little steep. All those extras don't add to the value of the car. Definitely make them take an extra $350 off if the t-belt hasn't been changed.

So i went down there to talk to them and looked at it and its nice. But they told my dad 8k and then they tell me 9900. and then the check engine light is on. I asked to take it for a drive and they said no..... the reason was that it was to crowded and they told my dad when he went that he was to wet..... i even went on auto trader and seen the price is 8k..... the car starts right up and everything and sounds good.... here is the car on autotrader

Sounds like a shady dealer... make sure you check carfax. Tell him you want him to do an OBD-2 code read out for the CEL and you wanna see the results yourself. It might also be beneficial to you to keep your dad with you when talking to the guy... sounds like he's trying to "take you for a ride" because you're young.

DONT DO IT. just the thought alone should get u kicked off the bandwagon lol jk jk if everything checks out i would say go for it. but i wouldnt get rid of my 4th gen to get a 5th. i would have both or keep the 4th. like mofo said check the carfax. im sure someone on here can do it, just put up the VIN.

Just make sure you get that CEL checked out... any good reputable dealer will let you take it to a mechanic of your choosing before you commit to buying it. If he won't let you take it to a mechanic or at least diagnose the CEL... i say it's a no go =(

Just don't let your heart make a deal that your brain knows is no good =)
