Capri, Liked It, Prolly Wouldnt Buy Another Though — nice car. fun to drive. reminded me of like a little tonka truck. more power than you'd expect from a little tiny two seater convertable. not much for speed though. decent gas milage, expensive to maintain though, parts cost to much.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Summer Car — I see why they lasted only 3 years. I have 3 of them. Hard to find parts. I bought about $1000. worth of parts over the years on e bay and I should be able to keep them running. You need to be a car nut to own one.

Affordable Insane Fun — Who knew so much fun could be so inexpensive? 30 mpg even while misbehaving. 4 wheel disc brakes way ahead of their time. for get the zero to sixty times. the real world highway times are much more impressive, like 55- 95 in 2.4 secs.. ohhh yeah!! now thats passing expediancy.

Unless You Own A Muscle Car, You Got Nothing On Me !!!! — Love it, if I had the money I buy up all the rest of the XR2 left in World !! I once had it up to 130mph but that on a straight on US80 in Wyoning. I decided I want to live a little longer, so I won't be doing that again.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fun To Drive, Kinda Rare, Inexpensive. — I inherited my Capri from my father who purchased it new in 1992. He left it to me with only 11,500 miles on it. I enjoy driving this little zipper though I must remind everyone it is NOT a sports car. It's a sporty car. IF the top worked correctly, I'd drive it as a convertible more often. Lots of turbo lag. Fun to surprise the occasional Dodge Magnum, etc. I plan to upgrade the tires, get a hardtop and new front/rear bumpers. A keeper at 34 mpg hiway!

Capri — it is a really nice car when its fixed up.. it looks good if u paint the black trim piece same as the car and u can buy a bubble top to go over the back seat.. an since there is no back seat it makes a excellent places to put some subs.. u can get some side skirts and bumper prices...u can get a new rear end.. it looks kind of like a corvettes with four round tail lights on it...really nice car fun to drive.

Fun While It Lasted — The capri is a real fun car to drive. The stick shift is short handled and close in range. I was surprised at how spacious a car of this size actually was.
