I've got a 95 M-edition in Merlot, purchased
for a song about four months ago. Beautiful
car, a joy to drive. It's flashy, zippy, handles
tight and clean, and holds a lot more than it
looks. It never fails to get attention and
admiration. It feels utterly safe to drive, with
that edge of excitement that comes with
owning such a fast, sexy little machine. With
only one exception, something inexpensive
to fix, it has never let me down.
This is my primary mode of transportation--I
will never go back to more "sensible"
vehicles. There isn't much I'd change about
this car, and I have no regrets whatsoever
about buying it.
Forgiving shift. Fast and powerful for its size.
Excellent visibility. Handles curves like a
slotcar. Lots of roadfeel without lots of
roadbumps! Comfortable to drive; lots of
room for even taller people.
Drains batteries fast. Plugwires have
already had to be replaced once (at 21k
miles). Cupholder, when occupied, makes
shifting awkward. Goofy location for trunk/
gas release levers. I want more horsepower
