Summary:

Small yet practical, and a joy to drive

Faults:

When I bought the car, the AC condenser had a hole and one of the fog lights was out; I replaced both.

Recently my AC compressor broke and I replaced it.

The supports that hold up the back hatch no longer function properly.

Nothing as far as the engine, but the clutch is beginning to slip, which is normal for a high-mileage vehicle, especially since the previous owner (my brother) drove it very aggressively.

General Comments:

Great car, very unique. Guys with their little Hondas or other imports have asked me what kind of car is it, because they have no idea what it is.

Excellent handling and acceleration. Biggest brakes I've seen on this size car, which have saved me from crashing several times.

The interior is very ergonomic. Especially the simple controls and the position of the shifter. As well as the comfortable seats with good lateral support to keep you in good position when maneuvering at high speeds.

Great gas mileage, T-Tops, and a fold down back seat that gives you a lot of extra cargo room, and makes this car ideal for a young guy in college.

Summary:

I love this car

Faults:

I purchased the car a little over a week ago from a second hand car dealership in Sydney, NSW, so the car wasn't in perfect working order. I have replaced the rocker cover gasket and a few wheel nuts, but other wise mechanically the car is excellent. the parcel shelf lining is worn a little bit and the roof lining has started to come away on the passenger side targa top.

General Comments:

The car has been professionally lowered, so the handling is great, fuel consumption is about what I expected.

The acceleration of the car is excellent, all though it can be a bit sluggish if it is cold. The seats are comfortable, but with the aftermarket suspension I have, it can get a little bumpy.

General Comments:

Its been a great car, and has never given me any trouble.

It has strong acceleration, combined with great handling making it a all around fun car.

The back seats are a small, but when needed 5 teenagers can be squeezed in, as long as its not a long trip.
