No...It might be the worst car Honda has ever made. Expensive to insure and not reliable. If you are stuck on Honda, consider the Honda Civic instead. You can do a lot with that car to customize and the aftermarket parts available are almost endless.In addition, stock Civics will get you 30-40 mpg, no matter the year.

I have known two people with del sols...Both liked them, and didn't have any problems. They are very small cars, and get good mileage. There are a variety of parts you can find for the car as well. Plus, the del sol is a civic, just a different sub name. Honda Civic Del-sol...(Del Sol is mexican for "of the sun"....considering its a japanese car, it kinda makes you wonder lol)

are you kidding me the worst car ever made by honda? i own a del sol and have had it for 5 years and it has driven great no problems at all. plus it's the only honda with a targa top, and the car is in the rare/hard to find market. and gets great gas mileage. also i have my del sol modified ex: body kits, rims, spoiler, roof scoop, just to name a few and aftermarket parts are easy to find. so my advice would be to get the del sol because as long as you don't buy a lemon it's a great car with good gas mileage, and good looks.
