1995 Honda Prelude Reviews

My 1995 Honda Prelude brake lights and blinkers will not work when my headlights are on. I really enjoy this car...love the body style and interior. I have only had this car for 2 months.
260,000 miles and I still drive it daily. Best car I've ever owned. Don't buy a new car. Find a babied Prelude, not modified, adult owned. They are out there! It has had the usual stuff done for repair and maintenence and I change the oil every 3-4000 miles. I have the VTEC.
