"This is "Chrisey, my fun car!" Bought new, my first convertible. Have driven her cross country twice, up and down the western states 4-5 times. Car is dependable, handles excellent in all weather, gets good gas mileage, has needed not much more that normal servicing. tires, brake. And she still looks new and sexy! One complaint is that it has a ride that is a bit bumpy. I fix that by deflating tires a bit, but would prefer not to do it. And,at age 73 it is sometimes a chore to get in and out of. Ten years ago it was OK, but I changed and the car didn't! I'll probably keep this car and it'll be my last one. I LUV it."

i love my little car

"I traded in a Buick century for this car and I have never regretted my decision. I do think that I over paid because about 7 months after I purchased the car the bottom fell out of the market and the same dealer was selling this car for $12,000.00."

Topless fun for 4!

Pros: "fun to drive, turns heads, girls love it, nice mpg"

Cons: "breaks down a lot, no full size spare"

"I have had mine six months, and it has junked a new battery, needed an alternator, needed a starter, and bent a rod. I love this car, I really do, but don't buy one. She is a money pit like no other car I have ever owned. I don't wear her out. I keep her slow and baby her, but she keeps letting me down. Very fun to drive. It's a very smooth ride, handles well, and the interior is nice. It's fun to let the top down and take it for a spin when the sun is out, but it's not worth the headaches. Also last but not least, if you do have anything major go wrong with the car, it is such a pain to work on a lot of mechanic shops won't even touch it. I had 4 turn me down when I needed the rod fixed. I ended up finding a guy that would do it in exchange for handyman services. All in all, they are wonderful somewhat sporty, somewhat luxurious, and still economic cars, but you might as well take the couple grand you would put into this (and quite possible the couple more you would put into repairing it in the near future) and buy something else. I know I would if I could."

Pros: "great price, nice look, comfortable"

Cons: "Brake line failed, needed repressure $150 cost"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"This car is a solid car with a good engine. None of the complex or esoteric engine problems of a no-name like a Suzuki or Mitsubishi. Easy to find parts for it, easy to find repairmen when something broke (over 12 years very little broke, and nothing broke that rendered it un-drivable, in that same time period). Brakes never totally failed, but one line (rear driver's) needed to be replaced. Fuse blew on dash light, but that didn't effect drivability for me, and was a cheap fix. If you can get a same-year Toyota Camry, Ford Focus, or a Honda Civic for the same price (which you can, if you try hard and act fast enough), do it. Otherwise, this car is an often overlooked workhorse."

Pros: "reliable"

Cons: "paint fell off too soon, roof bald after 4 years"

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

"A great work car, operated flawlessly for 90K and still going. A bit cramped for big people in front; v. little back seat space. Back seat folds down in halves, doubles trunk. Handles a bit heavy but holds corners well and nimble with effort in traffic. Classic timeless design, cool "jet engine" oval grill. A rocket at highway speeds, comfortable on longer trips. Center console a bit awkward to get into. I love this car."
