A basically good, fun car. Owned 2.
Both had early valve problem which
dealer fixed under warranty. Had to

reliable. Trunk lid pistons don't hold

a fun car, peppy and has lasted better
than I expected. Interior has withstood
100k miles with minimal wear. Front

Exterior design. Drop down rear seats
allow me to carry 10' pieces of pipe

to close the trunk!
Ugly standard wheels. Need to protect
