Review
Fun car! Use it for my "attitude adjustment". Terrific gas mileage, excellent handling, very comfortable for longer drives (the front seats anyway). Bought used with 76K (one owner, well maintained)an it already had the original top replaced. Read horror story reviews about the electronics but either they have already been fixed or I lucked out. Not a speed burner but can get to 50 plus before I hit fourth gear! I couldn't find an economical convertible with a manual stick that could seat four, although trunk space is minimal. That's where having a back seat helps, unlike a Miata, MR2, etc. I did buy 15" rims to fill up the wheel wells a bit more and they don't hurt the handling!
Favorite Features
Handling, gas mileage, sound system, awesome heater.
Suggested Improvements
Too late now, but a higher horsepower engine would have been nice. A 1.8T if I have to replace what I have if it will fit!
