Review
I've had this car for about 2 years. Trouble with noisy cabin air filter (vibrated at high speeds) and the drivers door gasket. Fixed under warranty in the 2nd month. The clutch/shifter a bit notchy but smoothed out around 7k. 29 mpg with commutes. Curvy roads are a blast. Top down in seconds. First gear a bit short, taking off from the light hits with 2nd. 3rd is a delight. 6th allows it to stretch out. I only wish there were more opportunities to let it run. Great comments from everyone. I often hear "cool car" when cruising with the top down. Valet parking always leads to a discussion about the car.
Favorite Features
Handling, economy, performance and top down when you need it in one package. 6th makes it a good commuter too.
Suggested Improvements
Lumbar support would help, but I have back troubles.
