  • What's New for 1993

    The sun, that's what Honda wants you to think of when you picture this open-air replacement for the CRX. Poised to recapture some of the two-seater market from the Mazda Miata, the del Sol offers solid performance and value. Usable trunk space and improved body rigidity are the benefits the del Sol has over its rivals. We think, however, that the Miata's superior horsepower and rear-wheel drive will prove to be more fun in the long run.

Awesome little sports car!

Vehicle: 1993 Honda Civic del Sol S 2dr Coupe

Bought a black 93 Del sol S with 121k miles on it about 3 months ago. It was an amazing car while it lasted. It got great gas mileage and never had a problem. Unfortunately, I was cut off and this car was absolutely totaled. I gotta say, for such a small car, it kept me safe, I had no injuries whatsoever, in a 50mph crash. Too bad it hadn't held up better though, the engine was toast because the front end didn't hold up. I plan on buying another one any day now, I love these cars!




Best car i have ever

I purchased my Del Sol last summer for 3100, A STEAL in my opinion. GETS AWESOME GAS MILEAGE, I average 38 mpg. Is great overall, I would say the only complaint is that it is to perfect, lol. I only have 116k on mine, and would expect her to go another 200k without any trouble. If you are considering buying a Del Sol, I would say make sure to get one that is stock, It seems like to many people think it is cool to modify these Del Sols and make them look terrible. I have only replaced the speakers since the old ones died. I just wish there where more of them out there. I have only ever seen 2 others since i have owned mine.

371,000 miles and counting

Vehicle: 1993 Honda Civic del Sol S 2dr Coupe

I bought the car new in 1993. At 288,000 miles I bought a Japanese exchange engine because the original engine started to use oil and it was cheaper to buy a "used" engine from Japan and replace the clutch. Total cost about $1800. I love the car even though it is noisy, the sun visors are useless, and there are no functional cup holders. Besides the replacing the engine the only time I had a mechanical problem was when the distributor wore out at 295,000 miles. That is the only time in 15 years the car stranded me. It gets 32 to 35 mpg and that's driving at 80+ mph. It is a great car overall even though it has the less powerful engine.

I love this car. I'm trying to get it set up for track racing, but me being 17 and in high school make it hard for me to work on it and only a very small budget. but one day you will see it somewhere.




Rare sol

Honda tends to do things right even on my first year del sol S ['93]. However they really missed the market when they only offered things like cruise, power mirrors, remote trunk release, etc on the SI's. I owned a '93 four door civic which had all the creature comforts that the del sol lacks. The del sol is fabulous but not equipped to be a day tripper. Seats come up short for any extended drives. Maybe that is why I only have 64K on the odometer. I really miss not having a cruise control; anyone out there ever do a retrofit?
