Incredible little 4 banger... will leave and stock Honda far behind
Back seat not meant for humans, incredibly small, can't actually sit in it if over 5'5". But that doesn't really matter seeing as how me and girlfriend are the only ones ever in the car.
Drivers seat had pretty bad rip, but nothing a nice black seat cover didn't fix... seats are very comfortable over all.
Crack the dash all the way from the front to the back.
Some bad rust on the drivers side door, front bumper is cracked.
CV axle boots were cracking.
Motor mounts is loose, makes a horrible vibration when the car is cold at low RPMs.
For having 144k miles, this car runs like a dream, the acceleration rocks, I can easily leave 20ft of rubber off the line. This car has monster potential. With a turbo, some exhaust and an intercooler, this car can run high 11s, low 12s in the quarter mile... now if can just convince my girlfriend to let me spend a couple grand...
Driver and Passenger have very comfortable space in the cabin, but forget the backseat. There is ample leg and head room, Shifter and wheel are in very natural positions.
T-Tops are awsome. I bought this car for $950 and the T-tops alone are worth every cent! The wind is not ear numbing, its just a nice breeze, even at freeway speeds.
Styling is very unique, you won't see anything like this car on the road.
Increadible potential... but even stock, one mean little mother. revs easily to 5 or 6000 RPM, good power out of first three gears, haven't really got a chance to max it out yet, but I can get to 60 MPH in third gear...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
