Pros: "Chick magnet."

Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable ."

"The only flaw with this car is this is not built for comfort. It is very sporty and has great power for a V-6. I have no regrets buying this car. I do wish that they would have put cruise control in the car to."

"Bought this car second hand in 2012. Has been reliable except for battery replacement....when battery starts going, systems shut down, including fuel injector which makes motor undrivable. This is a hoot to drive, gets great mileage and looks great. The top retract system is fast and cleverly engineered. Would buy again, but not the post 2008 hard top version. This model has a usable trunk, but hard top has virtually no storage with top down."

"Thia car is fun to drive. It has great pickup and stopping. Takes turns real good but has a bit of understeer that you have to adjust to. Once you get the feel of the car it is great. Turns heads wherever it goes because color is discontinued Maldives Blue, it has an exceptional look. When I took it on a drive to Orlando, 150 miles, I was getting 30 miles to the gallon. Not the number the computer said, but based upon the miles traveled and the gas used. I did not use a full tank. And that is avereging 85 MPH. At 65 the unit gets about 35. Premium."

"I've owned many roadsters and sports cars however this car was unacceptable when it came to ride comfort and noise. Of course, sports cars aren't going to ride like a Rolls Royce but I couldn't take this car anywhere over 100 miles from my house because the ride was so bad."

Pros: "A blast to drive"

Cons: "Maintenance (new brakes, gaskets, etc.) pricey."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Best car for road feel, handling, demands acceleration through corners, not just coming out of corners. I'm AARP-age and daily commute hasn't bothered my back for 8 years, but yes, you'll feel the road more than a land cruiser. But because I'm a commuter, flaw is cupholders, cheap plastic popouts. The spring clip died or came loose. What should be a $5 clip replacement is a $200 unit replacement. $600 each to replace two engine gaskets. Gaskets are dirt cheap, so it must be labor. Brakes are about $500 each, front vs. back, but my original set went for 55,000 miles, commendable. Lousy in snow with summer or even all-weather tires. Much better if you go to extra expense of winter tires and swapping out each season. Minor gripes except for pricey maintenance costs. Most fun for dollar now that Honda retired S2000, though if you can't afford those, Miata5 is a worthy step back. Buy your times from TireRack if dealer gouges you. I've bought run flats there for less than $180 mentioned in another review here."
