I bought this car several months ago
and have enjoyed it immensely. It has
had no serious problems, just regular
maintenance. It is a joy to drive and
I get a lot of comments on how nice it
looks. The 5-speed takes a little
getting used to, but makes the ride
much more enjoyable than an auto.
Overall I would give this car 5 stars
for a cheap, fun, good looking ride.
I like the stereo and how it was made
to be replaced easily without leaving a
gapping hole. I also like the 4-wheel
disc brakes (although expensive they
stop well). It handles very well and
the V6 winds up to give it plenty of
power for a little car.
The stick shift is a little far away
for my arm to reach in 5th and there
isn't really a comfortable armrest for
the driver. The cupholder doesn't work
too well and the passenger seat is a
tight fit for some people.
