Review

I purchased this car after a drunk driver demolished my sensible four door sedan and it was a treat. The car handles beautifully and heads always turn when I drive it through DC with the top down. It is fun to drive, and leaving work with the top down always puts me in a great mood by the time I get home. The only improvement would be the interior - it isn't set up very well and sometimes you can feel cramped.


Best Features

The bright red paint!


Worst Features

Better storage i.e. under dash storage and more leg room.

Review

I love the car, it's a second car for myself and my husband. It's a fun car to drive. The only problems I have experienced so far are a few stalls after starting it up on a cold/frosty morning. And there is a problem with the stereo cutting out for and coming back on of it's own accord a few minutes later. We had it checked and they did not find any problems...

Review

This thing corners like it's on rails. It's also bullet-proof. I've got over 11,000 miles on it and not a thing to go wrong. Have averaged about 25 mpg driving aggressively. Not much low end torque, but once you get north of 3,000 rpm, and especially when you V-tech the engine, it's a wonderful thing. Highly recommended. The metaphor I like to use is it's a precision scalpel compared to a butter knife. Get the New Formula Red, it sears the retinas.


Best Features

Reliability!


Worst Features

Better audio system

Review

I've had my car for one year now and I still enjoy each time I get behind the wheel. I've installed the 8 CD changer as well as the headrest speakers which really make a difference when the top is down. You could hear music before, but you can really hear it well now. I was also pleased about the mileage (I've gotten 23-25 mpg), not near as good as my Toyota Camry, but much more fun to drive. I find the leg room on this car much better too. I "tried on" many sports cars as I have long legs, and this one "fit". I also liked the glass back window in the top. It's much easier to see out of than the Nissan Z6 (which I found to be roomy inside, but visibility was terrible out the back window).


Best Features

Smooth shifting; controls at your finger tips; great visibility out the back window.


Worst Features

Difficult to see out front window with top up when you need to see traffic lights. You must duck down a bit. Also, install a pad on the back of the visor for garage door opener. My husband put one on my car and I love it. There's no place to put control for opener in my car.
