a great car

by sun lover from Plattsburgh NY on Wed Jul 10 2013

I had a 94 del sol S and then a 96 like this one; both great cars. the vtec definitely has more power than the S. Never regretted having a hard-top convertible OR a car with such great mileage. Not a family car, unfortunately, and not suitable for kids since there is no back seat. as for the negative review in this listing - they're wrong. but read all the rest for the other del sol reviews s to get a complete picture.

Our Take on the 1996 Honda del Sol

Two-seater roadsters are rushing back into focus, with German top dogs BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Audi introducing the latest variations of an old theme.
