Good, reliable transportation
Nothing but normal servicing. I do wonder why the dealer charges so much for synthetic oil ($50) over their own brand. ($30)
I am getting a strange whining sound coming from what I believe is the transmission, and occasionally (when engine is still cold or when I am driving in heavy freeway traffic) the tranny shifts are "harder" than when I am in normal driving conditions. Any feedback would help.
Overall, a great car. Light, fuel efficient, and comfortable.
The suspension is a nice mix of comfort and sport.
The seats are well bolstered (I am 6' tall) and perfect for long drives.
A little underpowered, I don't like revving the car above 4000 RPM to get the power out of it, but still adequate. I would have bought the manual, but the little lady can't drive stick. Oh well, I'll just have to wait for my S2000.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
