Spirited little car with minor quirks
The hydraulic clutch master cylinder needed to be rebuilt at 150,000 miles.
The headlight door got stuck in the opened position. It cost quite a lot to replace the electric motor.
Needed to replace the rear struts because they began to separate. You will need the plastic cap that covers the top. My mechanic initially didn't put it back on, and the strut began to punch a hole through the trunk lid.
Also replaced the water pump, battery and cooling fan sending unit.
About the repairs; I'd also like to say that every year I would replace the thermostat, because it would get sticky and the car would overheat (which is not good for a car with the engine in the rear).
This car is a good value, if you want a 2 seater. It drives and looks a lot like a Firebird, but, is easier on the wallet.
I'd like to also say that because this car sits so low to the ground, your vision will get blocked by objects that you would normally see over, in a regular car, and rear visibility is "limited".
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
