Everyone is complaining about leaks. Well the only leakage is on 4 door, sundowner tops 2 or 4 and hard tops. I bought a 2008 X w/auto, a/c with standard top. No leaks! Only two pain in the behind areas are the weather stripping on top on opposing corners that come flying off, and the front passenger seat that does not slide froward enough to access back seat. Mileage is good,18 around town and 21 hwy. Not a racer, just a regular ole hippie/biker guy. Performance is adequate, ride is comfy and handling is pretty darn good. Turning radius is outstanding. Yes there is some wind noise, but it is a rag top. What other vehicle gives ya'll as much fun, reliability, and enjoyment for 21 grand.
Serves my purpose, does everything a crossover can do, and holds my dog ( American Mastiff) all 225+ lbs of him in the back.
re-do front passenger seat so it slides forward more, and replace weather stripping with a permanent molding in two front corners. Also maybe just one other thing. Put a molding around windshield to make a more finish look, which might also help with other leak problems people are reporting.
