Looks a million dollars, but lots of common faults
Power steering leak.
Gearbox replaced due to reverse problems; went for a secondhand unit, which has started to play up 18 months after fitting!!
Front tyres wear quickly.
Roof motor replaced.
SID replaced (cheap from ebay).
I have fallen in love with this car. I love the way it looks, the driving cockpit is a nice place to sit, and it gets down the road with bags of style, especially with the roof down.
I am looking to upgrade to a turbo because I think the car is a little slow from pull away. I wouldn't normally mind, but when I am sat at the lights with the roof down, everyone wants to race me. I sometimes struggle to get up to speed, and I often get beat by hot hatches. The turbo is the way forward, but comes with all the extra problems, so if speed isn't important, stick with the cheaper to insure non-turbo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
