It's been almost 15 years since I purchased my '94 samba green si and I've racked up 209,000 miles. Three cross country drives from TN to CA, countless drives between MI to FL and it has been my only vehicle for commuting. I've followed Honda's recommendations for service and have never had any major issues. Nowadays I'm living in Ohio and admit that it doesn't handle especially well in snow over 6 inches, but the front wheel drive helps. The paint held up great and it looks pretty shiny and new still. It's a pleasure to drive on curvy roads and I really enjoy the smiles the little kids give me. It's a great conversation piece.
The power back window is used on a regular basis to vent fresh air. I love the room in the trunk. Most people are surprised at the space. Most new cars today are half the space. The gas mileage has really been a savior on my wallet when the price of gas rises.
Improve the cup holders, add a little more power and please please please bring back the Honda Del Sol.
