I bought this car almost 4 years ago with 36,000 miles; I was concerned given the age but I've wanted a Porsche my entire life and couldn't resist the deal.
I did buy a 3yr warranty but canceled it after learning most everything I was concerned about was not covered and considered maintenance items - I was refunded $3000.00 and best thing I ever did.
My Boxster just hit 45,000 miles and I still smile from ear to ear when I drive her.
No major problems outside of routine maintenance and yes, they are expensive to maintain but your driving a Porsche guys, not a Chevy....
Just had the 45K service done, costed $1400.00 but I had all the pulley's replaced because 1 was squeaking. BUY ONE
manual transmission, tight feel, 18" factory chrome wheels, power top, performance, body styling, just about everything
plastic rear window, interior but I like it more than the changes they made in 2004 which is why I wanted a 2003 or earlier model.
