Summary:

Magnificent low cost sports car

Faults:

Trunk did not open from inside. The cable had slipped out of the release button left of the drivers seat and was easily reconnected.

The car loosed power when turning into a sharp left corner. Cleaning the fuel pump filter with acetone solved the problem.

General Comments:

This is the fastest car I have ever owned. It is so fun to drive and it corners like a dream! The engine sounds great. It loves to reeve and the sound between 5.500 and 6.500 rpm is really awesome! I get 7 km/l (14l/100km) in average and 8.2 km/l (12l/100km) in the highway. It looks great with the hood up and absolutely beatifull topless.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My 1991 RX-7 Turbo Convertible was tuned up to 330 bhp. This was done in 2000. It is my "summer car" now, so it just does 4000 km/year average. It makes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds, and it goes on like hell until over 250 km/h. By then gas mileage is hell too; over 20 l/100 km... but who cares? In the early 90's, in the US it was called the Porsche-killer.
