Summary:

Greatest coupe that money can buy...

Faults:

Alternator worn out at 200.000km.

Starter-engine worn out at 200.000km.

Electronic carburator and lambda sonde changed at 200.000km due to too much pollution.

General Comments:

I must say that I am very impressed with this car. All though it has driven more than 200.000km it still drives like a new car. It is very reliable. Except for the electronic carburator steering, and lambda sonde, it hasn't been necessary to fix anything, apart from normal maintenance (parts, tires etc).

The passenger seats in the back are very small, but not smaller than what you can expect from a 2+2 coupe.

The driver's seat is very comfortable, and the cabin feels and looks great.

Actually the whole car looks great, and I love the Targa roof on hot summer days.

The car is not very fast, but not too slow either. Some might prefer more than the 90HP, but for me it's okay. What I like the most about the cars performance, is that it corners like it's on rails. The handling is nothing less than superb.

All in all this car has my recommendation.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
