I bought this car in the summer of 2008. It had 140,000 miles...new top w/glass back window. I had water pump and timing belt replaced right when I bought it. Not that it necessarily needed it, but I just wanted to get it done in case. The "check engine light" came on not long after I had it. Replaced Cat converter with a cheap one. Light came on again later. Replaced Cat w/ factory one..no problems, but it wasn't cheap (1K). Other than that, this car has been great...Knock on wood...had a little problem w/power windows but was a very minor fix. I really like this car, even though I get ribbed by my friends for driving a "chick car"...but I don't care. Now has 150,000 miles on it.
