Owned for a bit over two years and love the car. Outstanding reliability. Finely balanced ride/handling trade off. You feel the road, but it's not punishing. A bit on the noisy side even with the hardtop. Without the hardtop, visibility is so-so to the right and left rear. The hardtop also significantly stiffens the structure. As a result, I leave mine on all of the time. The engine is adequate from a power standpoint, and is responsive to throttle inputs, revving quickly. The stock exhaust strikes a perfect balance of tone and sound level- it's an audio delight. Shift action is excellent although if not careful, a rushed 2-3 shift may bypass 3rd and snick into 5th. Excellent car.
Balance between ride and handling. Comfortable interior although not large Outstanding reliability and very low maintenance. Parts readily available and reasonably priced. Adequate acceleration. Light weight.
Could benefit from another 30 hp. Power windows too slow. Mount the spare tire under the trunk to free up space. Seats could use more side support. Slightly larger sway bars would be nice Increased chassis stiffness.
