Summary:

Very reliable, fun small car!

Faults:

Sometimes the gas gauge reads empty, if parked on a hill.

The passenger door rattles when closing it.

Sometimes idles at above-average speed. A quick tap on the accelerator (in neutral) clears it.

Radio is under-powered -- needs more bass.

General Comments:

I love the car for driving around in the city. It parks easily and looks great. The convertible top is fantastic!

It does not seem like the car for long trips -- the trunk is small and the passenger seat does not recline very far. But for normal driving around town, it's very fun.
