The car is an absolute blast to drive! Handles better than any of the 30 or so I've ever driven. The mid-engine/rear wheel drive layout along with the rack and pinion steering allow you to really feel the road, and push the car to the limits.
The engine is easy to work on, as is most of the car. Anyone of moderate mechanical ability can fix most of the problems they're likely to encounter.
Most components that failed or needed to be replaced were the 20 year old originals. No parts that I've replaced have failed a second time. Parts are fairly inexpensive, especially those shared with other GM cars.
The car is far more reliable than my previous vehicle. It makes for an excellent daily driver if it is carefully maintained.
My only real complaint is the lack of power from the 2.5L four cylinder "Iron Duke" engine. While the car is quick, it really isn't fast.
I also regret not waiting to find a manual transmission car, although the automatic can still be almost as fun.
You won't find a better car for the price these usually go for!
