You either love it or you don't. Bought my fully loaded chili red 2005 model off the showroom floor about as soon as the convertibles became available -- November 2004. Added a freebie skull and crossbones decal to the fuel door cap, which sufficiently offset the "sorority girl" cuteness. Love to slide into little parking spaces along the curb after big cars ahead of me give up on them. I plan to drive it for another few decades.
Bought this thing to have a car to drive at the beach. It's been bullet proof so far. The run flat tires wear quickly, but other than that, repairs have been minor and inexpensive. I drive the thing 2 - 3 times a year to Orlando and back (225 miles each way) and it's pretty comfortable for a little car. Surprisingly roomy in the back if you need to move something.
