It's a heavy car! It can take a hit and the other car will have more damage. But this beast takes the WIDEST turns of any car I've ever driven.

The car has been extremely dependable, however it seems that everything happens all at the same time with the car. The alternator has gone out 2 times in 4 years of me owning it. But once it gets replaced it like a new car! And the breaks do not to well in hot climates in this car. Because the car is so heavy, in the hot florida heat and the crazy traffic, the brake pads are replaced every 2 months and once per month in the summertime.

Great car for performance and looks.

I have not had any problems with my vehicle in the ten years that I have owned it. I have only had to do routine maintenance and put new tires on in one time. It drives great and gets great gas mileage and it is a great looking car. My only problem with it is that my cat loves to use the convertible top as a hammock and I have to use one of those lint rollers on it quite often, but I cannot blame that on the car.

Clear visibility in the front, however a blind spot in the back.

Things I like include the openness on the inside, the small size, and the outside look. Problems I have/had include bad brakes, bad tires, loud exhaust, lurching, driver side door handle sticking, and missing an all functional radio. The seats are comfortable. The steering wheel is comfortable. Speed is great. Temperature works fast. Brake pedal and gas pedal are touchy the way I like it. Overall a nice car.
