I have owned this car for 8 years, and absolutely nothing has gone seriously wrong with it, with the exception of the turbos needing replacement.
Turbos needed replacing. Replacement cost about $3000 (parts and labour included).
This car is so good in so many ways it's ridiculous. It has razor-sharp steering, with good weight and lots of feedback. The manual transmission shifts smoothly, and with nice feel and little play. The car surges with power on the highway. It's comfortable on long cruises up the twisty British Columbia Coast mountain highways. And, of course, it is beautiful, even to this day.
I keep this car even though I have an Acura and BMW for daily drivers, only because I can't bear to sell it. It has been so reliable and so fun to drive, I still love it.
And, most importantly, it is the only car I've owned that makes me glance back to admire it every time I have to park it and walk away.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
