Looking for another one that's been taken care of, to have a matching pair
Removable roof has slight leak when raining, dripping on my left hand while driving.
Driver's electric window drive & track had to be replaced at 160,000.
Front & rear disc pads have been replaced three times, and front & rear rotors once.
Shock/struts front & rear have been replaced once.
The Honda 2000 AM/FM Cassette radio smoked around 80,000. Replaced it with an Accord unit.
The drivers seat belt was frayed and wouldn't retract. Honda dealer replaced it for safety issues around 170,000.
Motor/Automatic transmission had oil leaks around 150,000 miles.
Ignition switch & drivers door lock replaced around 180,000.
My wife & I wanted a convertible car with automatic transmission, that had style and was economical. Instead of rebuilding the USDM D16Z (120hp) & auto trans, my option was to install a JDM B16 (170hp) with auto. A few modifications before being installed, now has 220hp with 28 MPG. A rebuilt engine, new paint job, windshield, & headlights, and it's a new-old car for approx $6,000.
During the past 19 years, I've had to replace things, just as all cars will need to do. It's cheaper than new car payments.
The car does 130 mph in the 1/4 mile.
Wide track & low C/G makes this car turn on a dime.
Great warm weather ride with the AC, or take the top off.
Tilt pass/seat & lower rear window to carry a stepladder.
Big trunk for luggage or tools.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
