Great fun to drive, but at what cost?
The car is in constant need of
mechanical attention. The check engine
and brake light sensors are constantly
on, the electrical system is full of
glitches, and everything started
falling apart once it got past warranty
(not that the warranty covered much
anyway). If you are considering a used
3, find one with extremely low mileage
or factor in several thousand dollars
for repairs within the first few years.
