We bought our silver TC in March 06 brand new. I will just list the pros then cons. Pros are it is fun and sporty to drive. It is a cheap sports car that is good on gas and reliable. We have replaced only the brakes thus far and normal maintenance. It currently has 120K miles. It is of average comfort. The cons are it is cheaply made. Any little thing that has touched it has left a dent. Also the paint on the side mirrors started chipping off in fall of 2007. The paint on the body is fine but the paint on the side mirrors is now 50 % gone. The rear handle to the hatchback broke completely off after 4 yrs. The sunroof button has to be tapped now to close the sunroof completely. Good overall.
Design, fun to drive, sporty , comfortable enough, light weight, panoramic sunroof, easy to clean, roomier than expected, ipod capability, nice stereo system, reliable, good gas mileage
New design for the rear handle that will actually stay attached to the car, AC has never seemed that cold, better paint job on the side mirrors or use of primer under the paint on the side mirrors, stronger metal needed
