Great handling, great looks, great price
Had to replace the clutch at 140000k.
Slave cylinder went soon after.
I had to replace all the suspension IE Shocks/struts.
All bushings need to be replaced. Creaks and pops when I turn.
It is rusting very badly at the spoiler. Leaks water in the trunk from the rusting spoiler.
Replaced rotors and pads at 200000k.
Windshield washer motor went.
A pivot-bolt in the clutch assembly broke, very expensive to fix, due to removal of transmission.
Master cylinder for clutch went.
Slave cylinder went again also.
Frame rail's are severely rusting.
Power steering is leaking fluid.
Gas tank has a leak.
Head lights blow a fuse every time there are popped-up for some unknown reason.
4th and reverse pop out of gear while driving.
Timing chain is rattling badly.
This was my first and only car.
It was in good shape when I bought it. It has been a steady decline ever since. A lot of things have gone wrong with it since I have bought it. Not really very reliable. Although no real major problems. Just small things.
Handles very well. I bought new suspension and it handles like a dream.
This car has decent power, but could use a little more. The power band is very "American" with the power being made at about 5.5k rpm then dying off after that.
Interior is one of the best I have ever seen. Leather is nice looking and feels good too. Seats are semi comfortable. Backseats do the job for quick drives. Trunk is pretty big.
It is rear wheel drive which is great and very fun.
Very nice looking car in my opinion.
Overall I think this has been a great car, considering the abuse I have put it through. I drive very hard and race sometimes. It has held up pretty good. It is starting to show some signs of wear, but it does have 214k on it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a sporty yet classy car.
Also, this car is a great car to modify. Lots of options.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
