My wife bought her Honda Prelude new in 1985. With regular maintenance, it remained ever-reliable and racked up over 247,000 miles before we replaced it in 2003 with my Honda CR-V. In fact, I believe the only major repairs that were ever necessary over the course of 18 years consisted of replacing the radio, water pump and turn-signal switch, and some work done on the air conditioning! Although the Prelude's engine was a little tired when we retired it in 2003, you'd be tired too if you ran 247,000 miles!
Prior to buying my CR-V, we bought an Acura 3.2TL in 2000 for her to drive (that's when I first "inherited" the Prelude). Both purchases were motivated by our satisfaction with the Prelude, and we continue to be happy with both of our current Honda vehicles.
