It's a toss up with an 02. If you get one that the "bugs" have already been worked out of it's a great car. If your willing to suffer through working the "bugs" out yourself it will also be a great car. BTW welcome to FF.

Generally speaking, the '03 and '04 models are more reliable. As mentioned the '02's had some bugs that were worked out in the later models.

Great driving car. One of the best handling front wheel drive cars you'll ever find!

And if you do get an '02, make sure there is an updated tune on it. Preferrably, Tom's (1TurboFocus) Predator Tune.
