"Very reliable, most serious problem we had in the 11 years we've owned it was when the battery had to be replaced. Beautiful design, looks like a much more expensive car. Fun to drive."

"All this car needs is a caliper on the driver side, a wheel bearing on the passenger side, and the window power lock needs to be fixed too. Also, the front left fender is a little bent, rusted, and the paint is chipped from the tire falling off due to a michanical issue. Otherwise, this car is in good condition and drives well."

Pros: "27 mpg, nice handling and ride quality"

Cons: "water pump and battery locations are dumb."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Purchased with 99K miles. The only repairs needed were a front wheel bearing and a battery. BUT replacing the battery is a challenge. The battery is under the car in front of the left front wheel. jack up the car remove the wheel remove the cover panel, remove hold in bracket and slide out the battery. Reverse the procedure to install. The only other potential problem is the water pump. It is inside the front cover of the motor. If the seal on the pump leaks, your coolant goes into the engine oil. If you check your oil frequently and detect a problem, the repair is costly. Should you find out the hard way about a pump failure, JUNK THE CAR."
