Pros: "Fun to drive, reliable"

Cons: "Cooling system, clutch cylinder"

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

"The car had 56000 miles on it when I bought it in 2002. It now has 105000. I have replaced all of the hoses, the radiator and the water pump twice. I have replaced the clutch cylinder 3 times. I have replace the clutch at about 102000. It has been very reliable and I drive at highway speeds 4 days a week. Paint is bad and needs a new top...thanks to the Florida sun."
