This is a fun car and it looks great, so if you like that for a cheap price this is all you need. But you better have a couple grand on hand for repair costs. AC compressor, fuel pump (TWICE), gaskets, transmission service, brakes, etc. have all failed early, by 60,000 miles. Be ready for headaches to offset the driving experience.
Looks, performance, acceleration, and handling.
If they were to still make it, or a replacement car, USE BETTER PARTS! Reliability is a big factor in ruining an otherwise nice car.
