I am extremely lucky to find a 1997 Honda Del Sol VTEC. Not only is this car impossible to find, it's even more rare to find one that is manual with very few previous owners (mine had 2) For a 17 year old car, it is very impressive and Honda has won my respect from here on. Everything about this car makes sense, and it has a lot of features for a 97. The engine is 1.6L ;I always heard people say it is a gas saver but wow!! about 500 mpg and it costs about $40 to fill a tank. The car is light,fast & lets you take control of the road.It turns heads everywhere I go, and even those with brand new cars are stunned! If you find one, get it! Best investment I ever made.
1.6 L engine
The only issue I have is the light inside the car which is behind the seats which makes it hard to see especially when I am leaving my underground parking lot. I only wish the light was right above my dashboard but really it's no biggie.
I love my little Honda. I bought it
used with a ton of miles on it, and
I've never had a problem with it. It
is by far the most reliable and fun to
drive vehicle I have ever owned. Of
course it's not too practical and the
front suspension could be better, but
ultimately the perfect little red
sports car! Also, the trunk is
absolutely huge, so that helps a lot.
removable top, acceleration and pickup,
amazing resale value for the year
the sun visors serve no purpose
whatsoever- they're about four inches
long and two inches up and down in
I loved this car so much I bought 2 of
them. 1 was 170 miles from my house,
the second (97 DOHC VTEC) I bough 1500
miles away sight unseen. This car has
better performance than the Audi TT.
If you want a fun car to sit next to
your daily car, this is it. There is
none like it.
Hard targa top, for enjoying the sun,
and for security. Convertible tops can
be easily cut open. 160 HP and light
weight make this car faster than
anything else in it's class. Honda
reliability, not 1 problem since I
of course the cup holders. A little
more seat room. The roof leaks if you
dont have the newest seals for the roof
