A car I would never get bored of.
I have had to change the brakes once.
The front tires have started to wear badly.
The car is an absolute delight. Once the car is driven carefully, it is surprisingly fuel-efficient and brilliant in terms of control.
The 2.0l fuel injected SR20 engine is high in performance, out-powering other sports cars of it's own league such as sx Celicas, sx Corolla's and Vti Civics.
The five-door hatch is an excellent option and four other mates in the car have not been a problem.
The gear box also seems to be free-flowing, and I have even found that learners are able to drive my car without a problem.
The power-options including a power sunroof have been convenient, especially when you understand that it's only a 1991 model.
In terms of work done to the car, all I have added is a K&N hi-flow air filter, making the car scream when it revs. It is able to reach 7500 revs before red-lining, making it a better option once again than other sports cars of its league.
In terms of its body, my SSS is an import from Japan and therefore comes equipped with side-skirts and rear spoiler, as well as twin fog-lights on either side of the front end. It also comes out with tinted windows, sports suspension, a sports steering wheel and alloy wheels.
No real mechanical problems have been experienced with my car as of yet, and I hope nothing does happen in the future. I would not like to work it up to improve its looks, as it is an absolute gem in my mind, and in the opinion of all my mates. I would stronlgy recommend this car to anyone who wants a cheap, durable, powerful and beautiful car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
