Fun to drive; very difficult to fix

Let me say that I love my car when it is not in the shop. And that is not to say it has a lot of problems, it just takes 4-5 times to get each item fixed, and the dealer 4 out of 5 times breaks something else that takes 2 visits to get fixed. When my all window button and seat frame broke (I weigh 165 lbs) at 23K, I decided I've had enough. Great looking car and fun to drive, just a headache!! If you are planning on buying one, make sure you are close to a reputable dealer.
One push button convertible top. The fun factor when the top is down.
Leather quality (VERY poor). Every used one with sports pkg has worn corners. Makes resale difficult. Better quality parts, trained mechanics who know what they are doing and how to actually fix problems THE FIRST TIME, and without breaking something else. Factory support by someone who cares.
