2000 Honda Prelude Problems

Brakes -- Verified

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

Drive Train -- Verified

On some models the manual transmission fifth gear can grind on upshift due to a misaligned fifth shift fork. The transmission will have to be removed and disassembled and  the fifth gear, the fifth sleeve set and the fifth gear shift fork will have to be replaced to repair this issue.

Brakes -- Verified

A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

A clunk noise can develop from the rear due to upper damper spacers compressing over time. Installing new damper collars is required to stop the noise.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

On certain models the primary heated Oxygen sensor heater can fail and cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate. Replacing the Oxygen Sensor is will fix this problem.

2000 Honda Prelude Recalls (Recent)

Electrical & Lights, March 7, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda has recalled 1997-2001 Prelude, 1999-2002 Accord, and 1999-2000 Acura TL models because the ignition switch interlock may fail. If this happens, the key will be removable before the engine is in the "Park" position, which could cause the vehicle to roll and crash. Dealers will confirm interlock function and vehicles will receive an updated interlock lever free of charge.

The previous owner disabled the lock notification when you press lock on the keyless entry twice and I would like to re-enable it so I can tell when I lock my car.

2000 Honda Prelude Reviews

Ok, Almost a year later, after buying my 2000 Prelude(base model),my 2nd Honda...I made a second trip back in June (2011) back home to Ohio! I Drove my Prelude to & thru Nashville,TN (to visit & have dinner with Steve(& his wife),the man I baught it from), then up to S.Ohio, then upto N.Ohio! Round-trip...I ended up putting almost 2,700 miles on it, and she was fantastic! Air & cc worked beautifully! The body has 167,000 miles, and only about 6,000 on the rebuilt motor! Great cars!!! Thanks! Don, TX

Im new to owning a Prelude, about three months now! I'd recently flew to Nashville,TN to look at, drive and eventually buy the 2000 Honda Prelude that I currently own! The man I purchased it from was UNbelievable, and I wish we were nieghbors, but I was very happy with it, and afterwards I was nervous about it, simply because it was a car I had never owned before, and had approx 2000 miles to put on her til I got back to TX. Needless to say, she rund and drives beautifully and so far with no problems! This'll make my second owning of any foreign car, and it doesnt look good for the domestics for me, in the future! Thank you Honda, AND thank you Steve, for a wonderful car!! Don, TX
