Summary:

Expensive to maintain

Faults:

Transmission problems mostly. I won this car in a give away and damn why couldn't I have just won a normal car.

General Comments:

Parts are way way too highly priced for this car and almost impossible to find.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Stop complaining and sell the car to someone who can afford to maintain it. You may be better suited for a Toyota? Look around the trailer park, maybe you should buy what your neighbor drives.

Amen. Should've taken the cash value. What did you expect? Cheap maintenance?

I must concur with the last two remarks concerning this persons (obviously not a car enthusiast) poor review of what ranks to be one of the most refined machines on earth. Why do you see think the 911's are running so strongly in endurance events like Le Mans 24 Hrs. or for that matter in the Le Mans Racing Series. As for braking ability, reliability, resale, and all out general performance, as the commercial says, there is no substitute.
