Sporty commuter with room for kids
Shifter broke loose and fell through the floorboards. Ongoing problem last solved with epoxy.
Soft top leaks around the driver's side door.
Clueless local mechanic didn't know it was a twin-cam (they all are).
Starting to become hard to find body parts.
Wish it had more power, but a lot of fun, especially with the top down. Compared with the Del Sol and the Miata, it has about the same performance. But you can't throw two toddlers into the back of the Honda or Mazda.
Hard top a definite plus - makes it a four-season car. Looks were a little dated in the '90s, but for some reason seem cleaner now.
Do-it-yourselfers beware: it takes a lot of scraped knuckles to change the timing belt and water pump.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
