I've had my SC for only seven months and I like it more and more. It did have an initial "breaking in" time during during which I got accustomed to its shifting and handling and it "adapted" (according to the dealer) to my driving style. It did take awhile to get used to the shifting. While it isn't a "luxury" car it has many features that I consider luxurious and it has safety features which are extra on many cars, like a built-in roll bar, electronic stabilization, disc brakes, etc. While it is small (which I =love=) it sits high so that visibility is excellent.
I like that it sits tall even tho it is short, 8-feet long. I love the skylight. I like the way it handles. I like its stability even in the wind. I just love my car!
The windshield needs a non-reflective coating. The speedometer et al. display has a polarized screen which makes it almost impossible to read when wearing polarized glasses. Acceleration could be improved.
