Default Queston for Honda enthusiast: I have a question about a 2001 Honda prelude type SH i looked at?

Okay so i really want a honda prelude sh and i looked at one the other day... It was a 2001 prelude type SH with like 82,000 miles 3 owner car, and when i went to check the oil it barely had any! it was almost empty and they guy said he had Honda put oil in it a few days ago... i looked under the car and i didn't see any oil leakage or anything... what could be the problem? the car has a clean title and everything but do you think i should stay away from this car? it was extremely clean... thank you.

when i checked the oil it wasn't even on the dip-stick now that i remember

I made the guy go put some more oil in it before i test drove it and it is a private owner.

Do you think it was Honda's falt?

It could be burning oil.

Certain honda motor's do have known issues with oil burning, especially the H22 which is found in the prelude

As somebody already mentioned, the engine is burning oil. This could be a bad thing if the current owner lets the oil get that low often. It is possible that it just happened because I've done that once when my car just started to burn oil and just didn't know it at the time.

I don't think I'd buy the car if it was me, just too many hands and already burning oil at 82,000 miles.
