Fun in the sun, but a pinch in the pocketbook
The transmission has malfunctioned three times since I bought the car. Twice the mechanics said that it was fixed and the third actually was fixed.
The alternator and starter went right about the same time.
The rag bolt on the steering column went not too long ago.
One of the power door locks stopped working. Also the back driver's side power window motor broke.
The check engine light is on all the time, I have no idea why.
And finally, the fan and timing belts both needed to be replaced.
To tell the truth, even with all of the problems, I love my car. There is very little trunk space as well as the inside of the car. The interior of the car has sustained the tests of time though. The seats are in good condition. I installed a new sound system with CD player and the sound is excellent. For really hot days in Florida though, the convertible top is fun to have.
Overall, if you want a car that is fun, but needs some attention, this is the car for you!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
