1997 Honda Civic del Sol S 2dr Coupe


I just purchased this car and I can see it is not going to be my summer, weekend, beach car but will replace my CRV as my daily commute car. A small step down, but as someone mentioned it is a fun car to drive. As a guy, I couldn't care less that it's labeled as a "chick car" or some people call it "cute". Fun trumps cute 8 days a week and then some. I did a search and looked at comparable cars like the Mazda Miata and the TR7, both two seaters, but Honda quality and the fact that it was a hard top won out over my other choices. Even though I would have preferred the manual drive, the automatic is no slouch. If you have the chance to drive one and buy it, do. You won't be sorry

Best Features

Hard top roof, compact size, gas mileage, it's a Honda.

Worst Features

Instrument panel layout is awkward. Interior light is not very bright. THIS SITE This is an automatic car. The drop down menu only has choices for manual.
