1995 Honda Civic del Sol VTEC 2dr Coupe


This car is spectacular.
It gets fantastic gas mileage, and is the second most fun car I've driven (first is a Miata).
The targa top offers the ease of a soft top with the benefits of a hard top.
It has a very good amount of pick-up, but there is only so much a 1.6L engine can do.
It definitely out-accelerates other little 4 cylinders though.
It takes turns amazingly.
The suspension is stiff, which may be a disadvantage to some, but I count that as a plus.
I have only had it for about a month, so I can't say much for reliability, but from my research there is very little that goes wrong with these. If you get one, try your best to get the VTEC model, because it is worth every penny.

Best Features

Targa Top comes off in ~45 seconds Stock seats look cool and are very comfortable Stiffer, upgraded suspension (from S and SI models) Clutch is very light, and it slips into gear perfectly. Very easy to drive and/or learn manual on. Pretty fast, not the fastest, but definitely enough to get you in trouble. When you don't wanna go fast, it gets better gas mileage than today's "economic" 4 door sedans. Looks awesome Back window rolls down. The single best feature, as it can be used without taking the top off, and it is even nice to use in 20 degree weather. Good turning radius

Worst Features

The cupholders, while present, are not the greatest. They work fine, but they can occasionally get in the way. Seats are a little hard to get in to, definitely doable though, don't pass on this car just because of that. The interior light is kind of sub-par, due to the fact that it must be located farther back since the targa top roof is in the way.
