Purchased this car used in 2001 as an
anniversary present. My wife & I have
never had as much fun driving before
this. Engine is tight and cornering is
a joy. Short-throw shifter is the
best. Most important, I just change
oil and go(Synthetic every 7500).
Never had a mechanical problem in 2 yrs
(70K miles). I am continuely impressed
with the body design--a work of art.
Be careful not to become a dangerous
driver in city traffic due to its
acceleration & quick manuevering. Not
a bad weather car or for drivers over
Easy convertible top to put up &
down. Smileable acceleration &
cornering. Every day I admired the
body design. Glass rear window
w/defogger. Easy to wash. Lots of
aftermarket accessories. Darn good
clean fun to drive!
Difficult to get in & out of for
middle-aged geezers like me. Trunk
keylock too low-scratch bumper.
Ignition key too hard to find in dark.
Needs to come standard w/rollbar.
Trunk needs gas-strut to hold up. All
of these minor things have aftermarket
fixes. Oil filter hard to change.
