This car is incredibly fun to drive, and is easy to do modifications to. My first car ever and will always be loved. Things start to go as the car ages, however, so reliability is not the best, however nothing too serious. The fun experienced by simply driving this machine makes up for any problems though. It's a great car for the young and old driving enthusiast, and especially for those into upgrading/modifying vehicles.
The spirited performance, the comfort of the leather interior, the compliments the car brings to the owner of the vehicle.
Rear calipers tend to seize up, O2 sensors conk out, water leaks into the trunk, valve cover gaskets wear out. These are common problems to look out for. A passenger side cup holder would be nice. The 1996 is the only model year with 4 oxygen sensors, which is a hassle to replace (expensive).
