the red rings on the gauge cluster look good, never seen that before...nice.

looks good overall but like these guys said, that tranny might pose some issues down the road. be sure to stay on top of the ATF, and take it easy on the trans.

there are a few articles on here about the issues w/ the auto trans., my advice: spend some time readin up on it and be aware of any hard, slow, or hesitant shifts.

check to see when or if the previous owner had the trans. replaced, that will tell u alot right there.

if u take care of it, it should last u a while but just be careful w/ it.

nice car, welcome to the 5th gen community, hope to see u out at some of the meets.

good luck,

Ace

congrats! but I have to ask, why did you go with an auto? Not only do these cars have problems with the auto tranny but I just can never understand why people buy a sporty car with an auto tranny.
well my old prelude was an auto so like i was looking forward to get a 5 speed but my parents didnt want me to get a 5 speed i dont know why and also i live in seattle so like theres alot of stop and go traffic and hills but i really wished i got a 5 speed

yeah, everyone seems to have their different reasons but in the end they all wish they went stick

i drive up to seattle all the time, those hills and the traffic are nothing. it's the annoying people who tailgate you excessively that gets annoying. finding parking is a bitch too.
