1994 Honda Civic del Sol Coupe S 2dr Coupe


Review

At its first sight on our city road, i've said to my self, someday i wanna own this car cause i was then new here in the country and still coping with the environment. once i got employed i immediately searched and bought this car. and no regret, i love it. almost maintenance free if not low cost to maintain. i love the gas mileage consumption. i love the style, the practicality to use, and plan to keep it for so long till it becomes rare and antique/vintage or becomes collector's item. so for those out there who owns one, try to keep and maintain it and you'll be delighted.


Favorite Features

style, gas mileage, reliability, interior design, and the rear window roll down function. it's unique


Suggested Improvements

i wish Honda would re-introduce the model again and i wish they make a rear wheel drive or rear axle drive so that it would be fun to drip

Review

I've had 2 Del Sols so far. This was my second one after the first was in a flood. This car did not even have 100k on it when we had to replace the headgasket, then it overheated again. It was the radiator, $1500 in repairs. Now this car is totalled too because my boyfriend decided to run it into a concrete wall on the highway. I miss the ride, the functionality of the top, the wind in my hair, the gas mileage. But all the Del Sols I get are ripped away from me! Why oh why?


Favorite Features

I loved the hard top, no replacing it, not one can get in. I love the back window. Why is Honda sooo smart?


Suggested Improvements

Put something like this car back on the market Honda! There are no hard topped convertibles out there like this one! Oh, can the cup holders. I went to walmart to get the ones that go in between your seat, much more functional.

Review

Awesome, fun little car. Lots of attention with the top off, no penalty in the winter for having a fabric roof. Extremely manuverable; reliable - provided you do regular maintanance. Quick for the limited amount of power; you can get insane gas mileage if you behave yourself - with the 1.5 motor I get about 36 city / 42 highway. On a 500 mile trip at a constant 70, I managed to get 52 mpg - but that was without any real traffic on a nice day. Those who complain about their roof leaking must have been in an accident, or the previous owner had.


Favorite Features

Feels like a convertible with the roof off and rear window down; easy to manuver even without power steering; easy on gas without being a hybrid; extremely fun to drive


Suggested Improvements

Cupholders are for passenger use only; sometimes is hard to see around or over other vehicles; coolant system seems a little more trouble prone. Aux lights on early models require yearly replacement; easy to get tickets

Review

This is only my second car but I wouldnt trade it for anything. I love everything about it. If feels like my own little race car. This is a car I have a hard time keeping my foot out of. Mine is standard. The shifting is so smoothe. And I love the fact there is no power steering. It is such a small car, I think it helps with the handling. I also love that it isnt high maintanence. Keep the oil changed and she is good to go.


Favorite Features

removable hard top, lockable compartments, gas mileage, and spunky performance.


Suggested Improvements

One of the only complaints I have is the VERY leaky roof, and squeaky roof. I also might put a V6 in her. Or make them all tecs.

Review

Dallas and Fort Worth freeways will never be the same when i trade my 94 del sol into the dealer for a new 4- door civic (time will tell)8 months of 90 mph 9-5 M-F set my record straight, and 80,000 miles later it is at 150,000. The only dissapointment were the exit ramps off of freeways. The short wheelbase made handling at a maintained speed uncomfortable. Fuel economy was a consistent 39 Hwy/ 37 with the a/c on. Oil, antifreeze, plugs...Nothing was a problem. Saturday afternoon with the hardtop off is too cool for the average man or woman to own.


Favorite Features

Sheer convenience ingenuity. The ease of knowing my movements fromt the stick the the a/c or wheel are comfort as an all-day driver. The electric rear window is perfect day or night and even a security feature. Two interior storage containers behind the seats were invaluable.


Suggested Improvements

Electric seatbelts would be the sprinkles on the ice cream the add a sixth gear (to maintain 4000RPM) and i think were talkning rainbow sprinkles.

Review

I have had this wonderful car for about three years and have never had any reason for repair/work. I am a 59 yr old single woman who loves this little beauty, but recently finding it difficlut to "get in and out" comfortably !! Perhaps it is time to get something more for comfort!!


Favorite Features

Removable top and the gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

It's light, corners well for such an imbalanced weight distribution, and is otherwise a fabulous piece of machinery. The paint does chip easily, especially evident in the hood and front fenders. The rubber seals around the doors and roof seem to slowly start dissolving at about 4 years of age, but no leaking yet. The speakers are adequate, but the included stereo is the first thing to replace though. A name-brand under-200 dollar CD/radio has been a great improvement. Very impressive reliability record. A more stylish commuter car than the CRX or *ick* Geo, and more efficient than taking the family car.


Favorite Features

Stereo face flip-cover, trunk-able roof, lockable containers behind seats.


Suggested Improvements

Wider tires to improve braking performance - too easy to slide in emergency situations when braking far too hard. Perhaps ABS. Harder/more durable clearcoat and paint.

Review

This is an awsome car. I have the S model... it's a little slower than I'd like, but that will be solved with a b18c swap. Other than that, this car is perfect.


Favorite Features

power rear window, radio cover


Suggested Improvements

I've had no problems with leaks yet.
