Love It, Will Drive It Until It Explodes! — This car is GREAT! It's very quick, light, and it handles like a go-cart! The only issues I've encountered is (with age) little things start falling apart, such as the sunroof no longer seals properly so water gets inside during the rainy season. I'm having some problems with some of the gauges going nuts, and problems with the locks and doors. Those things aside this car is amazing to drive!

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

Pros: Quick, fun, affordable

Cons: Lots of little problems
