Starter went out all of a sudden. This cost 150 dollars.
Clutch cable broke at 63000. I believe this cost 60 dollars.
Radiator hose sprung a leak. Cheap to fix but it was in a real tight spot.
Computer or ECM broke rather suddenly at 73,000 miles. Part was extremely hard to find unless I was willing to pay close to a thousand dollars. I ended up paying 450 for a new one. It took me over two months to find this part.
The car is great except for the computer problem.
It accelerates well and is very inexpensive to drive. I find insurance rates are low as well. You would be hard pressed to find a better car with only 60,000 miles on it for less than three thousand.
I have replaced the factory stereo system with more quality equipment and found this to be a big improvement.
I could never willingly get rid of this because I would miss jumping into it during the hot summertime. If I could go back and look for another it would definitely have air conditioning and power steering though. Trust me, not having these will bother you in time.
Seats are comfortable and so is everything else, but the car's convertible top is not particularly well made and is very hard to take on and off.
