I purchased the car in 1996. It has
been daily driver ever since. My wife &
I have 2 kids & we can't bring
ourselves to sell it. It makes a great
commuter car & a great third "fun" car.
I was going to buy a Miata, so glad I
didn't. This car has a lot of room for
a two seater. I can fit my lawn mower
in the trunk w.the handles folded:)&
close the lid. We have taken it on
numerous vacations. I have only had to
replace the distributor, besides the
regular scheduled things. We have over
165,000 miles & I wouldn't hesitate to
drive it anywhere.
the roof. timeless design, doesn't look
like a '93. the trunk is huge. easy to
maintain, parts are reasonable.
ergonomics are very good. interior &
seats very comfortable for tall & short
people. seats are very nice & supportive
roof rattle (fixed in the later years),
better aux. lights, cup holder requires
being double jointed @ the elbow.
I was looking for a street racer and
when I came across the Del Sol it was
hands down #1 on my list. It was easy
to trick out and now it accelerates 0-
60 in under 7 and carves corners like a
hot knife through butter with minimal
upgrades. This car is sweet and has
alot of potential.
Low center of gravity, comfortable
seats, and of course, the power rear
I bought my 93 del Sol with 60,000
miles on it.I'm up to 130000 and i've
replaced the cooling system 3 times,
the thing died on me at a gas station
and that was 550 for a new
distributor.This car has left me
stranded on the side of the road more
times than i care to say I have done
all scheduled maintainence.I loved it
so much when i first bought it I swore
i would never ever get rid of it.Im
over that.The roof rattles terribly.It
leaks. The glove box is pointless.I
motor on the power window is on it's
way out.It has this new rattle when i
accelerate up hills, so something else
is about to fall apart on it.
I think they improved this car
significantly by stopping production.
Best car. Period. End of story. Must
drive, everyone must drive. del Sol
love. del Sol love.
5spd tranny, targa tap, roof holder,
POWER REAR WINDOW
They should have given us the cool JDM
toys like working visors, map lights, 1
piece head lights, aux lights that
worked well, THE TRANSTOP (electric
roof, trunk goes up and sucks the roof
in basicly then goes back down)
traction control, all the goodies.
