Pros: "Great sports car in a nice little package"

Cons: "A very rigid ride, not for the faint-hearted!"

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

"I love this car. I bought it with barely 51k miles and It is almost at 55k. Definitely the best car when it comes to performance I have driven to date. I almost believe this is going to be a "lifer" car unless some unfortunate unforeseen circumstance happens. I do believe for the value, you get more "car" and "performance" than it's competition which is the Porsche 911."

The 3.0 with SMG and sport package is a rocket.

"The 3.0 with SMG and sport package is truly a sport car. I drove a regular Boxster before buying this car. Boxster S was slightly better but much more expensive. You can drive this car in four different modes: Regular Auto, Regular Manual, Sport Auto, and sport Manual. In relaxed driving days I use the RM, and use the latter two on highways or when coming back from hours of sitting in the office and want some adrenalin boost. The car has very small turning circle that makes parking and U-turns easy and fun. The acceleration in Sport mode is excellent. Fuel economy is very good (I get 32HW and 24City). The car is very stable at high speeds and seems just wants to go as you accelerate. I have touched unbelievable speeds on HW-5. Once you get used to the SMG you'll like it as it is a clutch-less manual. The car has a clutch but the computer does the job depending on pressure on the accelerator or brake. It has the sporty feeling of manual without the heavy clutch that comes with most sport cars (those who have owned manual C5 corvettes, for example, would appreciate)"

Great car.

"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."

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

"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."

Pros: "great handling and even better gas mileage."

Cons: "Start every 3 days to keep battery charged."

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

"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."
