ReviewOverall this car has been what I expected. Lots of fun to drive. Not alot of money. Not too hard on the gas. A few problems: My clutch has deteriorated immensly. Shudders and stutters on Moderate effort starts in first few miles. Worse on wet or humid days, going to persue warranty. Some of door trim has come loose. Safety catch on roof latch stopped catching after 6 months(roof still stays closed but could accidently release). Factory tires lasted 25,000 miles (Bridgstone Turanzas). Seats are too soft in the lumbar area. Emergency Brake handle is a serious knee space intruder.
Best FeaturesEasy drop manuel top w/ Glass Window (I operate from the driver seat with one hand). 16 in wheels & 45 series Tires. Tight shifting and Great Handling. Bose Sound System did not disapoint.
Worst Featureschange emergency brake location/design. Add Telscoping to steering wheel. when seat is back for 6' drivers wheel is too far away. Firm up seats and improve shape. they are too cushy and do not provide support.
