It is a great car for driving aournd town or at the autocross!


I had to replace the cooling system thermostat.

General Comments:

The car handles as if on rails. It is a pocket rocket around town. Fuel economy ranges from 30 to 40 MPG! The higher figure is achieved on the interstate @ 70 top 80 mph.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The touch pad on the door is to relieve static shock.
