I bought mine new and it has proven very reliable. It has a solid feel, great looks (mine came with a beautiful metallic blue paint and chrome wheels).I have had 3 birds of various gens and none have been good off the line at a light, but on the highway they are incredible. I first learned this when I found the passing gear going 80, it was like light speed kicked in. The gas mileage city/hwy is incredible. I had a weird noise in the engine but it went away, I believe it was due to my feeding it lower octane, stick with 93.
The conservative good looks of the base model. Shortly after I got it someone approached me to compliment on my cars looks. Even after five years people still give it a look in the parking lot.
Better stock tires, replace them before you find the "passing" gear.
