"owned it for 3months now, I trades my Z3 M roadster for it haven't regret it yet....I'm looking for a Hardtop 2 go with it..power top its easy to use, plenty room for a road trip for 2people,grips the road at high speeds. Love the tiptronic shifter. people walk up to me all the time asking me questions about it but I don't mind at all...go for the S model with red brake calipers"

"I bought my 2000 Boxster used from the original owner with 74,000 miles. I've only the had the car for about 2 months but I have to say that I absolutely love this car. I've wanted one for a while now and I don't regret my decision for a second. The handling and acceleration, especially when getting to 4,000-4,500 rpms is intoxicating and it corners like no other car I've owned. I do have to replace the back plastic window and reupholster the seats and I figure this will run about $2,000. My mechanic says the small oil leak is likely the rear main seal and I am not sure how much this will cost. Overall I love the car and I am so glad I finally got one."

Pros: "Good price, fun to drive, looks great, turns heads"

Cons: "Will eventually need a new top"

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

"The car handles like a dream, you can take curves at 2-3 times the speed you would be able to in a normal car. It rides extremely smooth, but yet you can feel everything at the same time. Turns heads, gets TONS of compliments on a daily basis, and is fun to drive. I really cannot think of anything bad minus 1 thing. The top will need to be replaced eventually. Whether it be from the window getting old and cracking or just it fading. (which is the 1 reason I have given reliability a 9/10). But the good news is, a new top is only about $250-500 Depending on where you get it from."

"I purchased my Boxster used at a great price about 3 years ago and I'm so glad I did. This car has been the most reliable car I've had (knock on wood). People are always asking me about it, and I get stares. I've been asked if my car was a Ferrari a couple times. Although my Boxster is one of the slower models, I bought this car because I fell in love with the styling. Oil changes and parts can be a bit pricey but luckily I haven't had to put much into it at all. In my 3 years of ownership, I've only had to replace the AOS which was about $500 parts and labor. The car runs smooth on highways but can get bumpy on city streets. This is my daily driver and Boxsters are made to be driven! If you've been wanting one, I say go for it. You won't get bored of it."

"Purchased a S model this time. I've owned it for about 8 months now. Zero issues. The larger motor in the S is worth every single dime! The extra power makes this car a lot more fun. For the price of this car its worlds of fun!"
