"this is the best convertible I have owned. Some minor issues but overall excellent vehicle for the price. Rear glass in top separated at an early age even though car was garage kept. Both front door regulators failed after about 11 years. Otherwise very reliable. Blue color and sleek design make this a head turner."
"2013 install re-build transmission. 2014 rebuild motor. Consistent upkeep, new rims and tires. replace black convertible top with a matching grey convertible top looks really good with the silver body."
"really good car reliability and pretty fast car for something that wazs over 4,000 pounds.just a lot of electrical issues i dont like, door lockz, window switches and door handles not working but overall a good car."
Cons: "Needs push peddles to go when the car fails"

"Electrical gremlins, pinched wires, security key sensor replaced 3 times, electrical distribution system, convertible top sticks on stowage, transmission coast shock, body cowl shake, fails to start about 4 times per year. Prepare to spend 2-5k per year post warranty."
"It's hard to imagine the person who approved many of the silly details on this car. The turning radius is very limited, don't attempt a u-turn unless you have 3 lanes of space to work with. The front seats use a poorly conceived electric motor to allow access to the back seats. It's certainly not a car that more than 2 people can hop in and drive away in. We bought the car after the model was recommended by a neighbor, now we wonder if the neighbor was playing a trick on us. Expect the check engine light to come on regularly for very minor issues (which makes getting the car smoged a HUGE pain in the butt.) It's a car that may seem like a good idea in the short time people generally take to test drive and inspect vehicles, but the longer you drive this car the more you will distain it. I have owned Volvo's before and loved them...this is simply a poorly designed car that will grant you more aggravation and annoyance than joy."
Pros: "Absolutely Gorgeous interior and exterior/"
Cons: "Small Space, cheap interior pieces"

"This has to be the strangest car in the world, everything about it sends me back to the Owners Manual. The radio requires a 2-3 hour wait with the car on to reset, which runs the batter down. The car makes sounds that are alarming to say the least. The trim is falling off in leaps and bounds. The hood will not shut, but this car is absolutely gorgeous, the body is perfect, the interior would make Henry Ford blush, and most of the options work in the car, you just have to search and find out how to use them. I am replacing three lights and I am just going to let a mechanic fix them. But all and all, I like the car."
