This is a great little convertible. My first. The handling and tightness of an 11 yr old car are excellent. Rear wheel drive can be a bit tricky in winter. When I bring it to work on warm days all the coworkers want to go out to lunch in my car! I love the fact that it can seat 4 comfortably for short distances. A true classic in every way, and many have tried to copy the lines. Gets decent gas mileage , I average 22 mpg.
The 5 speed is so much more fun to drive due to it's pick up. Four wheel disk brakes help stop on a dime. Handling/cornering is phenomenal.
Onboard computer is junk (replaced 2x and still doesn't work). Stereo is not up to quality of the rest of the car. Cost of many of the parts and labor. Find a good independent shop. Wind noise w/ top up. Needs more low end torque.
