The article is so focused on the negatives that it gives an over all impression that this car is uncmmonly unreliable. That is my main issue with it. But that is just me.

After watching the video I found out his car has a "Nickel-Titanium" IMA battery!!! To bad he didn't get the optional high lift muffler bearing kit.
