Idles low and rough when in neutral, sometimes dies at stoplights. Multiple trips to the mechanic finally determined that there is a hole in the catalytic converter, which tweaks the O2 sensor.
4 times, the car died while running on the interstate, felt nothing but a slight jerk, but started right back up, and was impossible to tell anything happened, but still scary.
Hatchback spring is broken, have to open trunk manually with the key and pry it open.
Steering column needed to be replaced, but hey, it's old.

This is my first car, and for being 15 years old with 175k miles on it, it runs Better than my moms 98 Mazda Protege.
Seriously fast, sexy look, and an engine that's almost too big for it.
I'm only 5'8, feels fine for me, but anyone over 6' is going to have problems.
I've fit a total of 8 people in it, but you can only comfortably fit 1 1/2. ;)
No matter how fast you are driving, it still feels like it's only going 35 miles an hour. Deceptive almost...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
