1996 Honda del Sol Si 1.6 from North America
Fun, economical and reliable
Tape player stopped working at 63,000 miles. Never had any other problems. No leaks of any kind. Always cleaned and lubricated the roof gaskets every 6 months. Time consuming, but worth the trouble. New Comp T/A's at 50,000 miles, made it stick better and quieter ride.
Fun sports car for the money. Great trunk! Went on a 12,000 miles trip across the U.S. right after graduation and it was a blast! Top off and 100 mph through Montana! Can it get any better? Well, OK maybe at 120 mph! Bought this car new when I was 17 and I still look good in it! My parents liked the fact it was a Honda and wouldn't leave me stranded and I liked the fact that it wasn't my mom's Sable wagon, their choice for my first car!
Would I change anything on the car?
The sun visors. Let them move to the side. Better sound system so you can hear the stereo at highway speeds with the top off. A boyfriend who doesn't mind that I drive! Ha!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
