Summary:

A classy, roomy 2 door, that looks great and handles even better

Faults:

Nothing really (which I am thankful for), cheap to maintain.

A squeaky fan belt when it rains. Not really a problem though.

Low front fascia sometimes a little too low, but not a big problem. Just have to take steep entrances on an angle.

Service light comes on occasionally, but usually stays off when I run premium grade fuel.

17 inch tires kind of pricey (for name brand). But worth it it the long run.

Besides oil changes, nothing else really needed.

General Comments:

Looks great, very sleek design. Roomy inside, lots of cargo room for a coupe.

Quick and handles great. Variable shift transmission is smooth and efficient.

24 valve V6 has lots of power, and great pick up when it's time to pass.

Handles like few others. With the handling package and the 17s (with quality tires), this thing corners, and takes the curves beautifully, at almost any speed.

Seats are very well bolstered and comfortable.

Just as long as I pick and choose my driveways, the low front end isn't a problem. If it won't go up the driveway, I park and walk. You can't always have your cake and eat too. The sleek, low front end comes at a price, but it's one you can deal with.

Lots of compliments, these cars are rare where I live. Style is something this car doesn't lack.

Nicely appointed. Great features (like "one touch open" on the moon roof), great stereo in mine. The woodgrain package adds a nice touch of class to the already luxurious and well thought out interior.

Black on tan leather with 17' wheels means this car is as classy as almost anything else on the road with 2 doors around where I live.

Overall, very fun to drive, loves the backroads, great fuel economy on the highway. Would have a driveway full of them, if I had a big enough driveway (and if there were others around here). A great car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
