Great Ride, Fun To Drive
Had to replace the water pump at around 80,000 miles, cost $500.
Mice chewed trough wires two years in a row, close to $100 each time.
Runs the battery dead during winter. Easily fixed by removing for the winter.
Other than the water pump, the car has run strong. The 6 speed manual is a must. This is great when you want to jump off the line or run @2000 rpm doing 80 on the freeway. I was able to get 23 Mpg on a regular basis.
The only modification I put on it is SLP exhaust, it looks and sounds mean. The skip shift in first gear is a pain, but you learn to work around it or you can pay for a chip to bypass.
All in all this is a great ride. It is a lot of fun crusin' with the T-tops off on a nice day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
