Default Honda prelude SH (97-01) good first car?

I'm soon going to turn 18 and buy my first car. I would like to drive a car that would last as long as possible. I'm kinda iffy with how old the car is and the mileage on most of the preludes that are on sale (100,000+) Would I be okay buying a using prelude SH? Or should I just go with a more recent car like the scion tc or any other options?

Get a newer car. Honda does not make Prelude's anymore so it is hard to get parts. If you really want to get a Prelude then go to

You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here -

To answer the question. The 5th gen Prelude is a great car , not to mention they are fast. The engine is a H22A4 2.2l dohc v-tec. he engne makes 197whp @ 7,000rpm & 156 ft.lbf @ 5,200rpm.

They are reliable cars that preform well and would be a great first car.

Check the reviews on the car and make sure thats what you want.
