    Engine Lets Down Chassis. — Performance - Good performance, great handling. Build Quality - Good build quality for a japanese manufacturer. Appearance - slick styling inside and out especially with scissor doors. Cost of Ownership - very thirsty on fuel and needs engine oil to be topped up regularly. Fun Factor - Great fun to drive.

    Perfect Car For Those Nice Summer Days-plenty Of Bang For The Buck — This car has a soul and I feel very connected to it and absolutely enjoy driving it. I love motorcycles first and foremost and this car more than any other that I have previously driven reminds me of a motorcycle with it's high revving 9,000 rpm redline and the fact that it builds power all the way to the top just gets my blood flowing. I love the sound the motor makes when it revs,very addicting.

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

    Pros: Well balanced package and superb handling

    Cons: poor gas mileage and dealers are far and few between
