This is a great little car! In a year of ownership I've had no service problems whatsoever. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Easy to take care of; top is a breeze to put up and down; and it has way more trunk room than the Mazda MR2. Don't drive it in snowy conditions, though. Back end won't stay still. Very scary! Best to have a backup car for that.
Definitely the handling. Nice and tight and really sticks in the turns.
Improved performance in the snow. Not that I'm looking for a 4-wheel drive version, I'd just like to get to work in one piece.
