Wondering if I made the right decision

1998 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible

Review

Yeah a Porsche, I thought I was getting a great deal with a 98 and less then 25k miles. Thank goodness I didn't pay that much, because the first trip to the dealer for a tuneup set me back $1500 and was told that I would need a new starter soon. Then a week later, I was putting the roof down and the back window split down the middle. The Porsche dealer said it was my fault for putting down the roof in cold weather- it was 10C. This is a great little car really fun to drive! But had I known that the quality of the parts were that crappy I never would have bought it. I would have gone for the BMWZ3.

Favorite Features

Driving and trunk space! The car handles exceptionally well on the corners and on the autobahn! 125 miles is like nothing for this little car!

Suggested Improvements

Work on the quality of the parts! No car which is 5 yrs old with just at 25k miles should require a new starter and have the roof window bust open.
