A fast, very unique little car
The 2nd and 3rd gear synchro-rings are gone. So the transmission grinds if I'm not careful. Also, reverse gear is broken so it kicks out of gear if I don't hold the stick down.
My turbocharger is failing, but that's my own stupid fault. I used a bad quality oil.
Anything else was general maintenance.
I've always wanted one of these, and now that I got one, it's one of the best cars I've driven.
It handles as good or better than any Honda I've driven, and it's very, very fast for a 4 cylinder. It'll keep up with any high-end luxury car on the highway.
I've got my 0-60mph down to about 8-8.5 seconds, on a wet road. And my turbo is failing, remind you.
It's very comfortable and roomy for a small car, and feels great on the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
