Buying it is the cheap part
By Mordant on


1998 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible


I was so excited when I got my Porsche
Boxter, but my excitement soon turned
into disgust. Yes, there is no
argument that this is a fun car to
drive, not to mention it looks great.
It's the high & frequent repair bills I
can do without. The repairs are small,
but their price ticket is over the
top. I paid $750 for a spring for the
roof, and $3K and all I got for my buck
was 2 front tires, brakes, and a repair
to a small oil leak. According to the
tech at the dealership, this is not
unusual. The scheduled maintenance
will run you hundreds for your fluids
and belts to be checked. Love the
look, but no thank you. This is my
1stand last Boxter!

Best Features

Handeling, looks, and the convenient CD holder.

Worst Features

Build a better car where maintenance isn't such a huge factor.... and put in cup holders!
