"This has been a great car. ALWAYS starts! Gets 22 miles to the gallon. Pretty to look at and great lines. Has stayed in very good condition without any major repairs. The engine is beautiful! Love the sound of that power. Little hard to get in and out of, but, i'm getting older, lol! Overall, has been a great vehicle."

"For the money, this is an amazing car. The LS1 motor is bullet proof. Reliable and fast. Handling is really good too. Surprisingly good gas mileage."

"Absolutely amazing car, even with just the v6 it has a shocking amount of tire spinning power. I installed an aftermarket stereo and cold air intake. With the pedal pressed down and the engine roaring like a pride of beastly lions, there is no doubt in my mind that for $2k there is no other car like this for the price. Looks sexy, sounds great, my baby is approaching 200k miles and fast. As my daily driver for college and home, from NY to FL and back again, this car is a blast to drive. Just the look of the car turns heads and the sound does too. I put around one thousand dollars into fixing things that were left neglected by previous owners such as a leaking water pump, leaking power steering pump, new ignition coils, new spark plugs and wires, and replacing some old hoses. After that work was done the car runs great and is 100% reliable. Only downside if i can bring myself to write one is minor vibrational sounds that come from any loose part on the interior of the car(friends always ask but i don't mind at all). Overall a beautiful car and a perfect balance between American Muscle and Fuel Economy with a Sports Car look. Even if your engine blows or siezes, you can buy another 3.8 v6 for less than 500 and install it for under a grand. Or spend a little more and build it into a "Trans Am""

"just acquired- much more than i expected ample smooth power very responsive interior really nice convertible top high quality no leaks or noise. today i parked next to a much newer model vette(yellow targa top) and my TA (yellow and black conv ws6 ram air collectors edition) and without a doubt, I have to say value of car not in consideration, my TA was the much better looking ride a genuine head turner. research for yourself n buy one if you can. Remember there not building em anymore so there not getting any cheaper! Unlike the 69-70 Chevelle SS and the original Smokey n Bandit TA I dream of the 02 is reliable and affordable and modern safety features."
