Review
We've owned ours from new in '99 and echo what many have said. We're coming up on 300,000 km on little more than gas, oil, and tires. Still have original clutch and have had only 1 (yes!) brake job. Exhaust original as well. 2 recalls (ignition switch and rear differential fluid). This car has been fabulous. There are some complaints, however. The fan and a/c is weak for the interior volume (although still works as if new). The seats are the worst part of the car - seat cushion too short and hard. It's underpowered for it's size and noisy on the highway owing to high revs. Needs a sixth gear. I know it seems like a lot of complaints but, actually, it's a great car. Would buy again!
Favorite Features
Build quality, clutch, brakes, quality of interior materials, velvet switchgear, smooth engine, 1st gen styling.
Suggested Improvements
Needs: better seats, lockable rear differential, more power, higher final gear ratio in 5th or a 6th gear to reduce highway noise. Not a relaxing long distance cruiser although we have taken a 5000km road trip with it.
