I have owned this car for 10 years and
it has been great. It still drives as
if on rails. Acceleration and handling
are outstanding. The five speed manual
is smooth as silk. Interior is holding
up well. Heated seats are great in the
winter. When in for service, I get a
free loaner. It is always a comfort to
get my car back as I believe it
actually drives better than the loaner
cars even after these many years.
5-speed manual transmission, engine
soundness, handling, and the heated
FM radio has recently developed a short
and cuts out for a few minutes during
warmup. Standard wheels should have
been upgraded as in later models.
