I own five of these cars; from the base model to the twin turbo from each year so I feel I'm well qualified to make an accurate judgment of this car; to start this car is highly underrated and I wish they would get more recognition for the Design and engineering. Car is fairly comfortable driving long distance. My six speed turbo was great on gas for a sports car and went 450 miles if not more on a full 17 gallon tank. Oh man does this car sound good with an after market sound system with little or no effort although the head units angle does create a problem with a flip up screen if installed so using and double din unit is better.
The dash layout is very user friendly and bright at night; many gages and warning lights to look at. the all wheel drive is the best and cant be beat even when driving in the winter with 255/45/18" tires only Subaru comes close if not better and it's loaded with ever feature of a new car.
More head room, more adjustment of steering column for bigger people, bigger turbos but not bad, more after market part support though this is not an improvement, power window switch needs to be moved away from drivers left leg. all models should have come with adjustable seat high.
This car has been an excellent vehicle,and lots of fun to drive. Still don't want to give it up. It has 95,000 miles, is still running like new and the body still looks beautiful and stylish even for today. Only major problem I had wasan expensive part for the anti-lockbreaks. Great on gas, especially for a sports car. Every day I love to get in it and hug the curves or just listen to the nice sound of the engine. I ran iton synthetic oil (Mobile 1) since it was new. Purrs smoothy still, so maybe that helped. I also would love to see this car made again. I would love to have abrand new one again!
The looks - very stylish. The handling around curves at high speeds. The reliability and smooth operation of the engine and the whole car. The comfort, fits like a glove.
Larger wheels with this base model. Power and such were fine for our roads and speed limits, but I think the larger wheels look great.
has been quite reliable. have only
needed to replace the clutch for the
air- conditioner, driver side window
regulator and an o2 sensor.is very fun
to drive and handles exceptionally
well. i would love to buy another if
they still made them.
the slick exterior design. looks
muscular from the front
three things i wish mine had: spoiler
on rear of trunk and the air dams,
like the mitsus. and fancier
wheels.cannot complain though, has
been a great car!!
