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
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!!!
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.
