While I love the looks and performance
of my car, I have to admit I've spent a
lot of money on major repairs. I
bought it after 51k miles. Being the
second owner, I've had to replace the
motor mounts and the whole front axle
because the original mounts went bad
and lifted my engine up damaging my CV
axle! Second, my transmission died
twice. The first time, I replaced it
with a used one and then after 50k
miles I had to pay for an overhaul
($1800). Could it be just plain bad
luck? But like a star-crossed fool, I
stick with my car because I like the
look and the way it handles.
Nice, smooth ride. Very sporty-
looking, sleek vehicle.
Car out-of-production, but I would re-
design the tranny as it seems to have a
high failure rate. Also add better,
longer-lasting motor mounts and add
some room to the backseat!
