True, I never had any engine trouble other than a dropped seat. No, it's not the easiest to work on but not the hardest.

I got about 2.5 years out of mine. (and about 9-10k miles) Not exactly reliable to me considering the other cars I could have bought for the same money (a zx3 for example).

yes, it left me stranded on the side of the road and yes it had amazing mileage

I do however love the car itself quite a bit but it's been dead longer than driving under my ownership.

Still... it will only have a single cam. Just a lot more lobes. lol
