Del Sol Rocks
By Cary Honda Fan on
1997 Honda Civic del Sol S 2dr Coupe
Having owned one Acura Integra, three Civics, and one Accord, I admit to being a Honda fan! We looked at the Honda S2000, but the price for a fun car was out of our range. We purchased this 97 Del Sol for what the taxes would have been for the new S2000 and we totally love it. The targa top is great. Gas mileage is unbelievable. The noise and air flow with the top out, windows down (including rear window) is very comfortable. We can actually carry on a conversation at 75 mph on the interstate. Did I mention fun? This is the most fun conviertible that I have ever driven. Just got back from California where I rented a Mustang convertible (2007) and the Del Sol totaly was more fun.
Easy targa top removal and storage and still plenty of room in the trunk. Fun, fun, fun. This thing is so much fun and the 5 speed is fast. A/C cools well. Honda radio is great.
Would love to see a new Del Sol in addition to the s2000. Cup holders are hard to use, but at least they are there.
