A pleasant suprise

ReviewWhen I bought this car, I wasn't really enthusiastic about it. I had been trying for a MINI, and kinda got stuck with this (the dealers were shady). However, to my enjoyment, I have gotten quite comfortable with it since then. Adding rims and a few aftermarket things made this car very classy, and I enjoyed the ride. I did get a finicky blinker, though, and the starter made a funny noise, although it was mechanically sound. But at 132k miles, I am pleased to find that I haven't had to do much to the car at all. I replaced the vacuum tubing and secondary air pump for about $700, but mechanics were fair: $45 for extensive diagnostics. Looking to do a few more things for a truly killer ride.
Best FeaturesLeather (although it smells like crayons), Heated seats, Turbo/BOV, decorative trim
Worst FeaturesParts can be expensive, and the starter could be improved. I think there are many things that have happened in recent models to compensate for these, though.
