i absolutely love my spyder.
i bought it in august 2010 as an 18th birthday present to myself for college. Black paint, black top, 80K miles - are you kidding me!? i HAD to have it!
I've had mitsu's in the past, i know they usually require a decent amount of attention.
so as soon as i bought it, i replaced the top, tires, radiator, brakes, clutch, clutch masters, and numerous other things. have had no problems with it. it's at about 112K, and the timing belt is in about to be replaced, as well as the engine/trans mounts.. i will not hesitate to say that this car is not for everybody. interior is small, it needs TLC, and things break on it, just like all cars. very happy with my spyder :)
