I Have Enjoyed This Car For The Last 13 Years — I have had few mechanical problems with this car over a 13 year period. Garaged and not driven in winter. Changed timing belt and water pump about 10,000 miles ago. Has 128,000 miles on it now. I had it painted in 2002, but it has a cracked interior console. No body rust.

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

Pros: Handles very nicely on the turns, strong third gear and nice engine noise

Cons: Slow off the line, low to the ground.

Decent — i really like these cars because they are fairly inexpensive and really enjoyable to drive I don't like the bumper rubbers. and the sunroof which is a terrible design. but over all i am satisfied with tis type of car, however a turbo model wouldn"t be out of the question...

Pros: it"s fun

Cons: parts are outragous

Not A Daily Drive, But Very Fun To Drive — This car can handle! Its fast and fun to drive! I felt like I was flying and it was so fun. The gas mileage was great too for a sports car. The only issue was it was old and needed things fixed like the a/c and cruise control.

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

Pros: Sporty and fun to drive

Cons: Cost to repair is high

Amazing Handling Machine For Under 10k Used — great used car. predictable handling. Very controlled body motion. great value for dollar ratio. recommended to pick up a latter model for much better interior. a tad bit short on power. Almost bullet proof car mechanically, but electrical components are rather iffy. Car has great street presence for its age. You get second looks on the street for the price of a Honda civic.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reamarkable handling

Cons: maintanence

Decent — nice car, extremely hard to work on, but i'm 6'4 and fit in it fine. however although it is a 4 seater, its more like 2 and 2 for luggage. lol parts are also hard to get for it. interior is mint though for being 26 years old.

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

Pros: handeling

Cons: parts har to find.

Bargain Exotic — Slow car but still fun to drive. Fantastic handling. God help you if you have to pay a shop for service. Do it yourself. Somehow this car has no rust and the paint still shines after 25 years. Not even a rusty bolt on the whole car.

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

Pros: Handles awesome

Cons: Slow as molasses
