Love-hate Relationship — Wanted one since I was 16, when I got it felt like a king, til it started letting me down every week

Cons: Poor reliability

Calibra — this car if you like oldies is the one to go for, difficult to find with resonably low mileage but if you can get one with 100,000 miles on the clock it's defo worth it. My baby was a 2.0 with turbo, sports control, with added extras for pleasure such as a 200w base canon and 6 cd multichanger sony stereo setup.... now she has gone :O(

Pros: fast car

Cons: bloody head gaskets go very easily, once they hit 130,000
