Hondas have a reputation for reliability, and generally the Prelude is no exception. However, the automatic gearbox has caused some problems. Those fitted to the 2.2-litre engine suffered the most, with complete failures not uncommon.

No, buying a Honda Prelude as a “first car” is a terrible idea for many reasons. First, any “issues” on a car so old are at this point unique to each car and how it’s been driven and treated (which at this point are likely “fast” and “poorly”, respectively).
