Summary:

Love it, hope to ride it many more years

Faults:

Only problem has been front springs-not bad for a 19 yrs.

General Comments:

Great with the top down.

Classy looking.

Not quick, but its looks and comfort make up for that.

Has considerable room and comfort compared to some of the new convertibles.

Bright red is great, has kept its paint wonderfully.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

When you say not quick, what would be fast? I have the same year and model sitting in my driveway, and it goes 130ish. I burn most cars I race.
