This car is fabulous, its fun to drive and everyone loves it.
Purchased this car in Feb 2012. Wanted a roadster for a long time, but Vettes and BMWs are way outta my league price wise. Took a look at this car and totally loved it! Super fun to drive! I think the best features on it is the fact that the manual top is very easy to operate. Car as pretty good get up and go for a 4 cyclinder. Transmission shifts smoothly and quickly into gear like a roadster should. Mine has a manual 5 speed with cruise control, which is a first in a car with a stick for me. Drives and handles great! The car also really loves corners for sure with it's responsive and tight steering that gives great feedback all through the turn. Plus, I average approx. 25 mpg. I use it as a daily driver and my commute is 50 miles roundtrip each day. The interior is nice and simple. I am glad I did purchase one with leather seats. The only real complaint I have, which I have heard from other owners as well, is that the cupholders are in a very weird location. Almost behind driver and it makes it difficult to reach. And the trunk, with top down becomes almost useless. But then again, it is a roadster, not a minivan. I expected these things when looking for this type of vehicle. But all in all, especially for the price these cars go for, I am totally happy with my little American made roadster! I am, as they say, a very proud owner of this car! If you want fun, capable convertible two seater, this car is an excellent choice!
I purchased this car used in 2012 when it had about 60k miles on it. For the next 5+ years I enjoyed this car beyond belief. It was recently totaled and I am devastated. This 5 speed was so fun to drive. It was a primary car for me and I really enjoyed the responsiveness of this car. Not to mention it was quite a looker and the only thing that I added was aftermarket rims. The biggest pro was that this car was extremely reliable and I had no major issues at all. I maintained it well and it served me well. I had planned to drive it forever and estimate that I could have easily gotten another 100k out of her. Great car! This is why now, even with all the newer more cars out there, I am considering buying another in 2017!
