I bought this car brand new 8 years ago and aside from a CPU problem (covered by factory warranty) I've had no problems. With 92,000 I've replaced the brakes just once on the front and back. It is a driver's car and is all about performance and drivability. Definitely the most bang for the buck possibly of any car made to date.
Steering and acceleration are just superb. Original look and has never left me stranded -built to last!
Body is tinny and dents easily - cabin noise. Transmission is a bit temperamental.
