The instrument cluster had to be replaced from a bad temperature gauge, but I bought the extended warranty which covered it.
Windows do leak a little in the rain.
People either love it or hate it, and I love it. I have a friend who had constant problems with her 1.8 180 HP coupe, but I have not had anything I didn't know about going into it.
I read these other reviews, and I guess people think this is a luxury sedan. It's a roadster people! It's built for windy roads and sporty driving. The suspension is way more comfortable than my old Mustang GT, and the handling is second to none.
I chipped it and added a diverter valve, and I highly recommend both. Neither will eliminate my warranty according to Carmax, and it helps decrease turbo lag and add responsiveness.
Don't think I will ever be able to part with it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
