Engine sings a happy song!

1995 Honda Civic del Sol Si 2dr Coupe


Compare BMW Z3 & Miata. Crawl inside a del Sol [CRX targa], it has more room, truly reclining seat, more storage, built-in roll bar, & a safer permanent top. Trunk holds volumes. Love the power back window. At Interstate speeds the del Sol is far more capable than a Miata. Nearly 100K & still on the original brakes, clutch, etc. Recommended maintenance, tires, batteries, & fluids only expense. If Life is a series of compromises, then the del Sol hasn't heard: great handling & performance, along with great economy & practicality. Drive the SI SOHC-VTEC or DOHC-VTEC & feel the punch at 3K, 4K, & 5K RPMs as cam, 4 valves, & variable valve timing kick in respectively. Redline is over 7K RPMs.

Best Features

Its a Honda!:-) Gotta be the top and storage tray. Power rear window is retro and cool. Extra tinting helps deflect SUV/Pickup headlights at night, and can still be cracked to help air flow. I also like the overall shape with the top off and all windows down.

Worst Features

I added a factory/dealer optional power antenna. Next are stronger brakes. Other Improvements are readily available on the aftermarket.
