Bought new in 2004. Fun car to drive, very happy overall. Has been very sound mechanically. Only minor problems; blown front drivers door speaker, drivers side seat bolsters needed replacing, passenger side power window regulator needed replacing. All fixed under warranty. Biggest issue: GM doesn't fit their performance cars with adequate brakes. Prone to warpage, had same problem with 2002 WS-6 T/A. I have a set of Baer Brakes on order to fix the problem. Still, best perfomance car value out there! Can't wait to get a new Z06!
Performance, style, comfort, features. Run-flat tires!!! It's nice not having to stop to change a flat, especially in AZ in the summer! But, you definiely pay for it when you have to replace a tire!
Many were addressed in 2005 model. Cup holder that actually holds cups, second cup holder, bigger better brakes, hatchback auto-pulldown/latch.
