So much fun to drive even in the 9th yr. It's got a great kick and the interior held up well. Very reliable! The only things I've ever had to do besides tires and oil changes is replace the clutch once. Granted I only put around 8-9 thousand miles a year on it. But I drove it hard and in lots snowy/rainy weather conditions.
The look can't be beat! 5 spd control is a seriously fun ride. Small but large windows make it feel very open.
The moldings on the exterior doors will fall off. Just make sure you don't lose them.
