Summary:

Expensive, but FUN!

General Comments:

This car was expensive to keep running.

The convertible top roof leaked during heavy rainfalls, and two years after buying the vehicle, the convertible top somehow shrunk and wouldn't fit over the back.

Car would flood; had to have carpet taken out because of flooding.

But the car was fun for recreational use.

It wasn't really made for the winter, it was a summer car for sure.

Probably one of the best cars I'll ever own, despite the mechanical problems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
