I have had this car for 2 1/2 years
and finally selling it. I enjoyed the car.
Wasn't quite as reliable as you might
expect a car under 3 yrs old, but it is
a fun car to drive. I had no major
mechanical issues, just minor
things. I considered buying a '02
TurboS, but instead bought a '03
C230K. Will be sad to see my car go,
it was a lot of fun drive. The 2.0
(2.slow) has some pep, but you
would expect better gas mileage.
Roomy, fun to drive, and retro styling
is very cool!
Flip Key, Indigo Blue interior lights,
Lots of front head/leg room, easy
entry to back seats, one tounch up/
dn windows, cool sunroof controls,
Less plastic in the interior, or dress it
up some. Replace the 2.0 with an
updated engine, needs 6 sp as std,
and better instrument cluster, tach
and gas gauge to small.
