- Difficult to get into and out of
I've had this car for almost a year now and I am still very much in love with it. If you buy this car, be prepared to be accosted nearly every time you drive by people, both men and women, wanting to ask you what it is and how fast it goes. This car is an absolute joy to drive and every time I crank it up, I am reminded of exactly what it was that made me want to buy it in the first place.
On a very down to earth note, because if you're reading this you michgt want to know the whole truth, this car is NOT for everyone. I would not recommend it as a daily driver. It is very small and a very rough ride with only enough trunk space to store your soft top. I don't drive it in the rain as I have discovered through experience that the soft top leaks quite profusely. I do have the hard top, but I prefer to leave it topless as it does make it much simpler to get into and out of. If you are at all heavy-set, this is most certainly not the best choice for you due to its extremely tight quarters. My husband and I are pretty smooshed together when he's in the passenger seat and neither one of us is large.
Having said all that, I wouldn't trade mine for the world. If I'm ever having a bad day, all I have to do is get the little yellow beastie out of the garage and I'll be wearing a smile for the rest of the day. I love the exterior styling and the handling makes my heart sing. Haven't needed any repairs or out of the norm servicing. Quite a nice little car!
