Review

Excellent mileage and comfort. Everyone yells "cute car" as I go buy so it always feels very good to be driving this car. I've owned it since it was new.


Best Features

Fun to drive. Like to have the top down. Excellent mileage. It's cute.


Worst Features

Audio system isn't very good.

Review

OK, so it takes more than 20 seconds from 0 to 60. Big deal. Find me another top-down car that gets 33 - 35 mpg in town; 40 mpg on the road (no wind; 70mph). 13 years - 80,000 miles; only actual repair - speed sensor in speedometer went out at 32K. Rest is maintenance. Out today 50 mile round trip - bright sun, mid '70's, 25 mph sw wind - sometimes headwind - sometimes tailwind. Great fun both ways. Handles fine on ice & snow - it's just a shame none of the current < $20K fwd coupes don't come as convertibles. Like many other stick shifts I've driven, when you're close enough to floor the clutch w left foot, your right foot is too far forward to use the throttle comfortably.


Best Features

Convertible, 5 speed, clutch, milage, reliability, 0 - 30 acceleration in town.


Worst Features

Wife is intimidated when in it - she doesn't like looking at the under- carriage of 18 wheelers @ 70mph. Also, extended time in the car hurts her back unless she pads the seat with pillows. I find a small pillow under my right thigh really helps when close enough to floor clutch!

Review

I was a skeptic to actually drive a three cylinder engine. However, the chassis is so light that the engine has enough pep to power the only car I have ever driven with under a ton of weight. The convertible top is easy to operate and aesthetically pleasing giving this car a far better look than any of its siblings.


Best Features

Convertible top and overall looks


Worst Features

Should be brought back with the 1.3L G13 DOHC standard and styling for today's modern world.

Review

This has been a reliable car. I had it
for 2.5 years from 116k miles to 165k
miles. It always started. Always ran
and ran, 400 miles at a time even.
The convertible roof leaked only very
little from the top of the drivers
window. but it wasn't all the time
maybe only 20% of the time that it
rained. Two other things were
troublesome: the exhaust pipe broke
3 times. Install a flex pipe at the bend
just under the engine. that helped.
and my traction on wet or snowy
roads was terrible. buy good good
tires. I felt like I was in a saucer sled
most of the time. Its just a very light
car.


Best Features

Very dependable and reliable. Predictable too. Great fuel economy, I got 40mpg consistantly. speed is a factor. 55mph gave me 44mpg and 75mph gave me 36mpg. both still very good. convertible was very cool!!!


Worst Features

balancing the engine or securing the exhaust pipe so it won't break all the time. suggested better tires for increased traction. install your own radio and speakers.
