Great all season car!

1997 Honda Civic del Sol Si 2dr Coupe
I bought this car in 1997 to replace my wrecked 1992 Geo Storm GSI and this car has performed great giving me 10 years of almost zero maintenance. All I have done to this car is replace the tires and low cost general maintenance. I have not needed to replace any expensive items on this car like timing chains or major engine repairs. The car originally came with Yokohama tires that were designed for summer use, not winter. All I had to do was go through one winter with those tires and knew I needed a better tire that was more for Nebraska winters. I switched to Bridgstone Potenza R92's and this car is a Japanese tank that does not get stuck in the snow, even uo to 15 inches! Believe it!
The rear window is powered and the Honda Factory Alpine stereo will enjoyably blow your ears out if you turn it up in such a small interior space.This car has incredible handling for a car with not a very stiff body due to its removable targa top. The trunk is quite large and the seating area is big
This car needed a better soundproofing under the car, especially in the rain or snow. I soundproofed the underside of the car, especially above the tires, and this made a 100% difference. The car is very low to the ground and will make your girlfriend upset trying to get in and out of this car,
