Reliability and Crazy Vtec
A blast from the past the Honda Prelude 4th Gen 2.2 V-tec Jap Import with a factory claimed 0-60 of 6.6 sec and the best looking of the Honda Preludes.
Now by today's vehicle standards a lot of people will look at this review and say "so" but in the day these were pretty good stats and for people that have not driven a V-tec i would say you have/are missing out.
This car drives well and you feel part of the car with cornering an absolute dream which you could push pretty hard.
Now this is designated a four seat car but i wouldn't suggest taking two your mates in the back seats unless you like either a cramped driving position or very cosy mates in the back seats laying across one another (i'm sure you get my point here)
The interior is as expected for the year....cheap and plastic but even with a serious sound system in the car (aftermarket sound system running 1000w of bass) it didn't rattle, i may have been lucky.
The driving position is laid out well and the dash is spaceship style design where it encapsulates the driver with everything in view.
For a single man/ boy racer/ person who likes driving fast, this is a great car! Fuel economy on the other hand if you drive it hard wasn't great but its all about driving it hard right?
Performance for this car in this period was fantastic estimated at 6.6 for the 0-60 and it felt like it too (please bear in mind that the fuel prices were lower and i had no children). The acceleration was great and the handling was crazy as i tried hard to slide this thing. The wheels were 17inch aftermarket alloys which may have helped with the handling and possibly saved me from ditching it.
Absolutely. If you haven't driven a V-tec i would suggest that you rectify your mistake and just do it.
