The best thing about the model year 2010 is that Porsche eliminated the IMS (beginning 2009) (intermediate shaft bearing) that was so problematic that there was a class action law suit against Porsche. See Google for details. This is a really nice car overall, although I do prefer the Boxster S for night and day difference in performance. Get the 6 speed, although that is my preference instead of the PDK. It's a sports car so why would you want an automatic? Avoid those in an accident, previously, as being smacked in the rear or side can be problematic as a mid engined car. Overall I love Porsche and own 3 including a classic 911 and 914. Great cars. Just do your homework, and get a PPI (Porsche Pre Inspection just to be sure in order to avoid expensive headaches.

The car is great fun to drive. I chose a 2010 because the IMS bearing problem had finally been solved. A total engine failure is simply not acceptable, no matter how fun the car. Well, at 37,000 miles the shift cable broke. It's a problem that leaves you stranded and frustrated. However, as they loaded the car onto the flatbed and I contemplated trading it in, I thought; "but I really want it!" I hope the cable is an updated/upgraded version of the original. I'll be sure to update this review if it breaks again.

The 2010 Porsche Boxster has many reliability, performance, and interior improvements over older models. Also, much more capable highway cruiser than the older models. This car has the all of the Porsche driving experience and has mid-engine handling. Mine has some extra options. Bose Stereo, Homelink, and Heated Seats. Definitely fun to drive.
