1993 Honda Civic del Sol S 2dr Coupe


I bought the car new in 1993. At 288,000 miles I bought a Japanese exchange engine because the original engine started to use oil and it was cheaper to buy a "used" engine from Japan and replace the clutch. Total cost about $1800. I love the car even though it is noisy, the sun visors are useless, and there are no functional cup holders. Besides the replacing the engine the only time I had a mechanical problem was when the distributor wore out at 295,000 miles. That is the only time in 15 years the car stranded me. It gets 32 to 35 mpg and that's driving at 80+ mph. It is a great car overall even though it has the less powerful engine.

Best Features

Mileage, Targa top, Easy to get into tight parking spaces, Back window comes down Roomy trunk with roof holder, you don't have to leave your hard top at home. it fits in the trunk and there's still lots of room for other stuff.

Worst Features

Better cup holders Get rid of the sun visors
