only 1 owner, bought at 49,000 miles.Was weekend car. The stock CD/radiocombo died 2 months after purchase due to a design flaw in the amp. Only had a bad thermostat, but needs a new master cylinder for clutch. Other than that,works fine. Heats up quickly in winter.A lot of body flex, but thats a given for a convertible. Its a blast w/ the turbo, but something might be broken w/my car b/c it gets around 13 MPG currently. Excellent cornering, only problem is the low ground clearance. Reliability varies, can get 60,000 or300,000 out of various parts, it depends on your luck. Beware, if you can't get apart second-hand, a new/refurb part will cost you.
MOVE THE INTERIOR LIGHT SWITCH! It's directly between the shifter and ignition, and thus very easy to accidentially hit it into 'always on'and run down your battery overnight. I've drained my battery 3 times that way. Power seatback for driver side failed so that only one side forward/back.
