1993 Honda del Sol SiR 1.6 DOHC VTEC from UK and Ireland
I've only owned the car (a Japanese import) 10 months to date & I have had no trouble other than a small water leak into the boot & an annoying roof rattle. Both easily cured by myself.
Generally a very nice small car. The performance is excellent as you would expect from 160hp in a small 2 seater. Handling is very good but the ride is a bit too firm for comfort & the car is a bit noisy at speed due to the high revving engine (red lined at 8,200rpm). The targa top is easily removed & stowed in the boot making it a brilliant car for summer. The boot, even with the roof in, is quite large (except electric roof models) making it a very usable small car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 1993 Honda del Sol SI and have encountered the same problem where the roof rattles and leaks. I was wondering how you were able to correct this problem? Please respond to Sugarstars4@aol.com. Thanks!

My wife & I felt the need of a 2nd car, and we decided to get another CRX, but when I saw the delSol, I had to have it. Great pick-up, 97,000 miles (used) and stylish looks at an affordable price.
Can complain about leaks in the trunk (that's "boot" to you), but won't. The car is too sweet. Our 5-speed SI looks great in black, but I've seen a god-awful grasshopper green color that makes this buggy look like a cheap toy.
Overall, this incarnation of the Civic CRX continues to deliver all that it promises in the Honda tradition.
