Fast, reliable, safe, and great brakes! Fun to drive


No faults with this car.

Very very good car.

Losing value quickly as it is not as rare in Ireland as when I bought it.

General Comments:

Very good car.

Slightly boring interior.

Loads of performance parts available from japan.

If you keep the revs low it is economical.

Great power above 2500rpm.

Always buy one fresh from Japan.

There are several different types of engine types.

20v blacktop is the best.

Wouldn't spend money on a car without ABS after having this car. The brakes have saved my life more than once.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
