Great economical fun to drive car
Interior has faded due to the convertible top being down a lot.
Original clutch only lasted 40,000 miles.
Car could use more power.
Small gas tank limits cruising range. If you're driving happily, you'll get about 24mpg. Car has a 10 gallon tank and some reserve, so 250 miles is about tops.
Oil filter is hard to get to.
Car just feels right when you drive it. The suspension isn't too soft nor too hard.
Feels like a go-kart. Puts endless smiles on my face.
Cheap maintenance 4 cylinder engine and the light weight of the car makes tires last a long time and it gets good gas mileage even when driven somewhat hard.
Driven all freeway under 75mph, car will get 31 mpg. That's a 300 mile cruising range.
All maintenance is easy to do yourself.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
