Honda Prelude Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda Prelude here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Torn between two cars

    I LIKE the more sporty two-door Prelude, but can understand the practical appeal of the Commodore. Both will have high odometer readings, so you will need to choose carefully, particularly in the case of the Honda, which is more inclined to suffer if not well serviced.

  • Going sporty at 41

    WHEN you say Supra and Skyline, I take it you mean imported models rather than the older models sold here when new. If so, I recommend you don't buy either of these unless you are car-minded and have a friendly mechanic who can fix them if they break down. Go for a Prelude or Celica -- both are stylish coupes, well built, making the sort of statement you want. If you want a real sports car then you can't go past a Mazda MX5.

  • Matter of timing

    ARE you feeling lucky, Linda? Even though you haven't done a high mileage, the timing belts still deteriorate over time. The consequences of breaking a belt on a Honda don't bear thinking about. The result will be expensive repairs to the engine's internals. I'd replace the belt as it's well over five years old.

  • You can't use lrp

    I can't explain the pricing policy of the fuel companies. But by law you are not permitted to use anything other than unleaded petrol in a car designed to use unleaded, that is, a car sold after 1986.
