Wow, um two weeks after buying this car used from a Toyota dealership, the clutch went out. Yep. Somehow my wonder father talked them into paying for the new clutch. At this point, we decided the car was a lemon. It was just bad news. A week and a half after the new clutch, I needed a new battery and some new fuses. 30,000 miles and the darn thing was just causing problem. Then I got a full tuneup and alignment. So far an estimated 2000 on this car I have had for 6 months. Now there is something wrong with my brand new clutch. Something that seems to be yet another reason I despise this car. Everything has gone wrong, the interior is falling apart the ash try keeps popping out,(I dont use it, I opened it once to hold a receipt). The speakers are getting bad. The top is so difficult to remove and replace that its not worth taking it off. I find that in the morning, the car is frozen, and you can't heat up the back window on the soft top, so I have no visibility out of that...Its just not really worth it all.
This car has been nothing, but problems. I love the way it looks, the turning is awesome. I went from a big van to this small car, and its amazing the things you can do, no more 3point turns. It handles great, it's a bit loud, but again, its costly to drive. Gas isn't cheap... ha-ha like you didn't already know that. But so far I am not really happy with my amigo. It's a bad "friend." But the one reason I bought it, was to look cute. I believe without a doubt that this is a chick car. With the top off, rock music blasting, it's the funnest car to drive until something goes wrong and my wallet is again empty.
