Had this car for a little over a year now and it's been nothing but fun and reliable. Aside from the Ttop seals leaking, this machine is SOLID. Super fast city car. If a quick commute across the city at 80-90km/h is what you're in for, consider this about as necessary as any modern sport compact. Only majors needed since purchase were fuel pump and struts. Handles like my old 914 at high speeds! Good luck fitting anyone in the back. If you're 6', don't bother. It's a clipper ship in a bottle. New rims(17's), tires, chip it, exhaust and stereo = blow 95civis off the road. o_O
Accel, handling, tops, folding backseat ^_^, lots of aftermarket engine parts for this. Mileage is insane. 2 weeks commuting, 1 tank.
Engine could really be easier to dive into. Interior degrades after 14 years lol. Gaskets and weak fuel pump.
This is the best car I've ever had. I purchased it new, and it has never given me any trouble. It has low milage, and I've maintained it well, but I believe it would be a good car had I put many, many more annual miles on it. It handles very well in city traffic and is a dream to drive on the highway. I a drive across the country two years ago, I never got tired or stiff while driving.
