Honda Civic del Sol Problems
The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.
The evaporators and condensers can leak. Replacement of the leaking item is needed.
Evaporators can grow mold and give off a foul odor. Replacing the evaporator is recommended, but the evaporator can be removed and washed in bleach to kill the mold.

Honda Civic del Sol Reviews
I was looking for 2 fuel effecient cars for my girl friend and I, she said she didn't care what it was as long as the mileage was good. I saw the delSol, and thought it would fit her young personality(even though she's over 30). The more she ended up driving it, the more she loves it. This is a very good "girl car", and a great choice for someone that doesn't need a back seat. I ended up going with a CRX, which I enjoy driving as well.
I have a 1997 Del Sol Si with 205,000. This is a great little car, with the warm weather it has been getting over 35 mpg's. There is a little bit of rust here and there but not that bad. 4th set of brake pads, 3rd muffler Not too bad in the snow with 4 snow tires on it.
The car has been trouble free.Easy to work on for normal maintenance.If i had to do a major repair i would be able to do it myself,the car is not loaded with a bunch of computer junk and anyone that took auto shop could fix it.Get a good repair manual and give it a try,why get robbed by a mechanic.
This car is a great value. Not only is it fun to drive and gets great mpg (still in the 30's), the care still rides like new even at 140,000 miles! I'm sure it will still be a fun, reliable ride for years to come.
Great car for the price.
