Fast and reliable. I recommend it
Lower balancer shaft bearing came loose and the balancer shaft had to be removed (This was fine by me because it's considered a performance upgrade). It cost me $600 CDN only and added 15-25 HP. That price also included a new oil pump.
Amazingly fast car, handles great in the Canadian winter, I haven't been able to get it stuck anywhere yet.
This car seems extremely tough, I rev it to 6200rpm in every gear and drop it from 4500rpm off the line a lot. It just keeps going and going I love it. For how reliable this car seems to be, when the engine dies (if it does) I will have it rebuilt and the car will go forever again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
