Summary:

Biggest bang for the buck

Faults:

The "Service Engine Soon" light comes on from time to time when I'm using the cruise control.

One of the wires to the rear defog-window fell off once. (The auto-glass-dealer soldered it on in 5 minutes.)

The windshield has got many scratches on the outside. Probably caused by bad wipers and dry sand on the windshield.

One of the brake rotors needed machining once.

General Comments:

This car is great driving, and it turns a lot of heads in the summertime. Because there are just 4 of this car in Norway.

I have great feel of the road, sometimes a bit too much. It feels like the rear axle is welded directly to the frame. But I can survive that.

A small minus is that the rear end has a tendency to slip when I'm accelerating out from junctions in the rain.

It's a shame that the F-body is discontinued. I wouldn't hesitate a minute about buying a new one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
