This car is the funnest car that I have ever driven. So balanced that it reminds me of the racing carts I had when I was in my teens. The only problem I have had with it is the ignition switch had to be replaced (factory recall or something). Car is reliable, high performance, and certainly lives up to the Porsche reputation. Have driven some friends 911's and the Boxster definitely handles better.

My DH and I decided to buy something very unnecessary for our one year anniversary, so glad we did! We had been looking at the 2006 Mustang gt, but those are a dime a dozen now. We picked up our new toy for $16K in excellent condition. We love the comfort, handling, and speed. Yeah baby! We actually fight over who gets to drive! On our test drive, we got it up to 120 mph and it was barely over 3000 rpm ! Need I say more! This is one fun ride! It's a dream to drive in town as well as on the open road. Don't hesitate to buy this car!

I've had this car since 2003, and to this day I still love it. I was one who used to change cars every few years, I've owned a BMW 5 series, Z3, 323i convertible, and a 318. I've also owned a clk430, c320 and a 1999 beetle. So as you can tell I love cars(!) and this so far has been my favorite one. It's never given me any mechanical problems, everything still works, nothing is broken. Wait... the only thing that did tear was the convertible top window, it came unstitched. Aside from that everything works fine. To anyone thinking of buying a car like this one, you won't be disappointed. If possible get one with the upgraded Porsche exhaust... it makes this puppy purrrrr.

I drive the Boxster every chance I get (except in the snow). It's great on long trips and holds enough luggage for two people for a week's travel. I have had no problems and everyone wants to drive it. It is the best car I have ever owned.

I just bought my Boxster used with the assumption this car was a detuned, poor man's Porsche. Boy was I wrong. This car is a race bread performer! All I can say is, "pinch me" to make sure that I'm not dreaming, when actually I'm ," living the dream." Enjoy.

This car has been an amazingly reliable vehicle. I have had it for 4 years and have not had to return it to the dealer once for service. The radio had some problems and the dealer got a little snippy but I managed to fix it myself.
