My Del Sol — it's not a car that you really see every day... There are so many mods that can be done for this car seeing that it's a honda... All it needs is a custom all wheel drive set-up and your ready to jet.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Ultra light car that it's ready for anything

Cons: the cab might be a little to compact

Buy One. Love It. Slowly Take Its Top Off, And Enjoy What You See, And Touch It. — Fantastic car. Needs more power, and that whole breaking axle thing is a problem, but...my next car will be another del Sol, if I can help it. Buy one with the 1.6L DOHC motor if you can find it, but the SOHC 1.6L is excellent too, especially if you live in a cooler climate. It doesn't like the heat, but it goes like a bat out of Hell when it's below 70 degrees outside.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Yes.  Get one.

Cons: Broken axles, not enough torque.

Good First Impression And Would Still Be In Love If It Had The Same Kick — I bought a 93 del sol with a rebuilt 94 vtech engine. I have had if for about 3 months. its fast(was). and goes great around the curves. drop top is fun and eye cathing. I say it was fast because the vtech seems to be malfunctioning and I have no idea y. it still drives but the excitement of feeling the after burner effect is gone:( making it just an average daily commuter.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great on gas, very low maintenence(its a honda)

Cons: vtech stopped working, leaks and squeeks

Honda Civic Crx Del Sol 1.6 Vtec Vti El.targa — 1.6 VTI VTEC B16A EG DOHC Overall - GREAT car. If you dont own one - buy one ! In summer months, it's like a whole new dimension of driving. If you like speed... you will love VTEC - at 5500rpm the fun begins.. 6000..7000.. still going.. 8200! Shift ! 160

Pros: Targa, vtec, appearance, braking, handling, the attention

Cons: Not much room for bagage, not even a spare tire fits in trunk. Not recommended in the winter months.

The Bestest Car Ever! — Best cars I could ever ask for. They are a rare little car with only 75,000 sent to the US. There reliable, quick, they look good, and the next closest thing to having a hard top convertible like this would be a $100,000 mercedes. The car was$24,000brand newback in the day

Pros: its a hard top on the bad weather days, and its a convertible on the nice days. i bought it at 146,000miles and im at 169,000 and it still runs just a strong as ever. its so reliable, never taken to mechanic for engine probs.

Cons: if it rains to much, one of my seals is bad and it drips a lil

My 93 Del Sol Review — I don't like how the del sol has a horrible blind spot over the drivers left shoulder, making lane changes a sometimes unwelcome surprise. I don't like how how the top leaks occasionally when it rains hard. I DO like how low it sits, and how it handles. After I get the turbo on the stock motor, the "fun to drive" factor will be good as well.

Pros: Appearence, handling, fun to drive

Cons: blind spots, water leaks

How My Del Sol Is — i love the fact that my car was built by me and not the car manufacturer themselves. i've modified it to the point that it seems to be a completely different car. the car is awesome to drive (when it's running right) and after the turbo install, runs like a champ. it still needs some tweaks and tunes, but that's the way it goes with a project car that you love...the build never ends

Pros: it's a convertible, a four-cylinder, and most importantly it's a honda!

Cons: it's got some rust, no torque, some oil leaks, it's a honda

A Car That With A Lot Of Good Things. — It easy to park. And have a really hot outlook. Save money in gas. Pick up is fast, for start up can't complain at all. Easy to handle, easy to find parts if there's something wrong. Even though it was old, but still had its power. One thing needs to consider of is, if you have friends, that's only can pick one of them up.

Pros: Easy to handle, save money in gas, easy to find a parking spot.

Cons: It's a 2 seaters, whoever got a lot of friends, which won't work
