A great and fun car to drive and own

Car has served us well. We only drive it about 7k a year. He handles extremely well and has plenty of power. Exterior is stylish and sleek.

Best Hard Top Convertible

Great car for Florida. Not just a solid built Hard Top Convertible but has a large Sun Roof as well for the "cooler" open air weather. Good economy although it requires 92 octane fuel for the peppy 2 liter turbo charged screamer under the hood. Executive model has everything. Leather heated power steering for driver and passenger, Rain sensing windshield, Auto sensing headlights, Dual climate control, LED lighting, Self dimming mirrors, Folding exterior mirrors, 9" Android touch stereo system with navigation, Pushbutton start and more...

Wonderful convertible

Love this car. Hard top convertible with sun/moon roof. Very zippy and a great drive. Lots of cool features. Too bad they discontinued this model in the US
