Summary:

Clean, genius, exotic

Faults:

When I got the car it had high mileage and a bit of an oil leak, but that is what you expect in older cars over 100,000 miles. Along with the oil, one of the pistons wasn't firing correctly, but I got this fixed with some new gaskets and spark plugs and it runs great. The speakers were also blown, but they are easy to replace.

General Comments:

It is a great car, there are not many left and they are hard to find at a good price. I was lucky, my car runs exceptionally well and you are really noticed in one. It still hugs the road and puts out reasonable power. The SOHC is a great motor if you want the gas mileage and don't want to have the extra trouble of a twin turbo DOHC.

Summary:

Excellent Grand Touring Car

Faults:

Idle air flow servo malfunction; caused erratic idle and surge under no engine load. Inexpensive, simple fix.

Just don't hit anything: headlight assembly, $550.00!! Can only be ordered from factory in colour to match automobile.

General Comments:

What can I say? It looks like a supermodel. Gorgeous curves and lines, with just enough wings and spoilers to be tastefully gaudy.

Non-turbo engine makes 222HP, which is enough to provoke the car into illegal speeds dangerously quickly.

Great grand touring car with power leather seats, adjustable suspension, sunroof, ice cold A/C, heated mirrors, and sweet sound system.

Still looking for a bit more power, but for now, she'll be more than adequate...

Surprising how many visitors to this site think that Steven writes ALL the reviews; he would have to have quite a large garage to own all these vehicles!
