Pros

Great fun car to drive, above average reliability and maintenance costs.  Kooks great going down the road and was very comfortable.

Cons

Not a great winter car, but that is probably to be expected with a convertible.

I Liked This Car A Lot, Had Fun Driving It. — Overall, we really liked this car. It had great features and options, was large enough to use for more than just riding in, but was a great good looking cruiser too. We would definitely purchase another one in the future. Loved to ride around with the top down. Used to ask my wife if she wanted to go riding around topless (she never did appreciate my humor with that question). Never the less still a really fun car.

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

Pros

Excellent bodywork quality.Sleek, good looking car. Cabin is tasteful, has good ergonomics and is made of quality materials. Crisp handling, smooth and powerful engine.

Cons

Truly eye-swiveling, window licking insane engine design. The water and oil pumps are INSIDE the crankcase and run off the timing chain. A water pump failure will wreck the engine by fouling the oil if you don't catch it quickly. And if you do, the repair will set you back at least $2,500, as will an oil pump replacement. I know, I've been there.

Standard brakes are really weedy. I fitted cross drilled and slotted rotors along with ceramic pads. That made a big difference, but my wife's 1998 Sable Wagon still brakes better with standard hardware.

If only the mechanics and electrics matched the body and cabin quality!

The front suspension is badly designed and prone to premature wear. Electrics are iffy.

Valley Girl On Wheels - Nice To Look At But Very High Maintenance. — Hideous mechanics with even more hideous repair costs. Battery is in a loony place. You have to jack up the car and remove the driver's side front wheel to get at it. Even if you buy a super clean well maintained example, chances are it's a dog in disguise. For the kind of money I've plowed into this car, I could have bought and maintained a Jaguar XJ8. If you're tempted by this car, don't be. If you want a car that will beat you up and steal the contents of your wallet on a regular basis, buy a Jag. At least you'll get mugged in style.

Love May Car — Over all the quality should have been better for the money. I am the original owner and love the car. Car looks like new, but after thousands of dollars in front end work the car still has noise in the front end. I would buy another one because it seats 4 people and ample trunk space.

- nice looking car, sporty with good handling characteristics

Cons

- it's poorly engineered with it's 2.6l V6 DOHC:
- not designed well for repairs: fuel pump is in the gas tank, battery inside the front bumper, another repair had to have the engine jacked up inorder to access and repair an inexpensive part.
- engine in this car is poorly designed and usually only lasted for about 200k.

The Newer Ones Loose It's Only Benefit Which Was Looks. — good car, but poorly designed for everyday use and repairs. It's low slung design didn't suit boat launches, but it handles extremely well. It was bought used as a stopgap to avoid buying 2 new cars in one year. Thanks

Excellent power, and Trans-Am handling....

Cons

Build quality isn't the greatest, and you do pay for it everytime there is a problem.

Not Bad. — I like the car for being a driver...it's more than a point A to point B car. Handling is great, and power comes on strong for a small 6. Gas miles are almost 30 mpg on trips, and there is plenty of storage. Wish build quality was better so don't compare this car to a Honda. Price was good, but you pay for that price difference later when problems arise. All in all, I like the car but won't recommend it to a friend.

Absolutely Love This Car. More Than Any Other Car I Have Ever Even Driven(in The Summer At Least) — the performance is outstanding for a car placing out less than 250HP.. although i think mine is probably pushing close to that now. build quality is mechanically sound. perfectly sound. although my front bumper cracked quite easily haha. the appearance is like sex. i just want to sit and stare at it all day long :). cost of ownership is LOW LOW LOW, im getting 30+ mpg in the summer and around 25mpg in the winter. FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN!

Its A Fun Car, And I Miss It — she had great acceleration, and good handling. the gas milage is around 22mpg when i dove her. maintenance wasn't bad i had to replace a hose that dry rotted, but she wasn't really drove before i owned her. it was a beautiful color when it was washed and waxed.

Not The Best, Chrysler All Around Sucks — I really hate this car. It has pretty good performance but it just sucks in looks and its way to low, you feel like your dragging your butt on the ground. I would only recomment this car to someone with a family that doesnt want to spend that much money.
