Thought I'd throw in my 2cents after
owning this car for a full year. Bought
new in Feb 02 and is honestly some of
the best money I've ever spent. Great
acceleration, nice compromise of
handling and comfort, and ohh, the Momo
steering wheel. Seriously, this has to
be one of the most meatiest factory
steering wheels in any vehicle. I own a
5 speed and could live without the
clutch shudder, which is my biggest
gripe. But at the end of the day, if it
were ever stolen or totalled, I would
be rushing out to buy another.
AWD, Turbo Motor, Momo wheel.
This car needs a clutch recall. If you
follow any internet threads of owners
that have had a 5speed for 10-20K, some
even less, you will find that most have
a cronic clutch shudder
(skipping/slipping) when the car is
cold/sitting for serveral hours.
