What a great vehicle. With over 300,000 miles on the odometer, the car still runs perfectly with its original engine and transmission. Some engine accessories have had to be replaced, but the engine itself is solid. The vehicle is fun to drive. It's hard to stay in a bad mood when getting behind the wheel. The handling is light and accurate. The suspension is stiff like a sports car should be but not punishing. Being a convertible, it is a joy to drop the top on warm days and drive with the wind in your hair. Despite its 30 years of age, the car still looks great. The paint has some scratches and dents here and there, as might be expected on a car with so many miles, but it doesn't detract from its beauty.
Story
Driving along a popular canyon road in Southern California on the weekends with the top down. I often feel like a celebrity due to all of the photographers taking pictures as I drive by.
Pros
Handling: Although a fairly simple suspension setup, the handling is predictable and true. It goes where you point it and is a joy to run through tight turns. Appearance: Classic '80s styling. The boxy little sedan has a certain timeless appeal, and many compliments are received when stopping for fuel or at the store. Safety: Although the car is from the era before airbags, it does have very efficient anti-lock brakes. I've viewed photos of many of these cars in accidents and they do a decent job of protecting the occupants.
Cons
Not everything is a bed of roses, however. The heated seats only work on 'high' setting. When driving with the top down, ear plugs are recommended, as the wind buffeting can hurt your ears. The car is fairly low to the ground and can be difficult for older people to get into and out of.

2015 BMW 3 Series - If you want fun without the smog, buy this.

This is definitely the best car I have ever owned. This car gets amazing fuel mileage while giving you enough power to slam you back in your seat. Yes, the engine may have a bit of unevenness to the power delivery, but the fuel economy and power you get far outweigh any negatives. This car has everything from Bluetooth to automatic wipers and keyless entry. The car in the cold mornings with the radio off does sound like a diesel, but turn on the radio, put the pedal to the floor and you forget all about it being diesel. You will have a big grin on your face as it forces you back in your seat. This car has a start stop feature witch further improves the fuel economy by turning the engine off when you come to a stop and restarting as soon as you start to let up on the break. On average, ...

Pros
Fuel economy, great sound system, fast, and comfortable.
Cons
You do have to make sure to do the scheduled maintenance, as the car will not start if the urea tank is empty. And a minor con--the diesel engine is a bit unrefined and rumbles the car at idle, something that can be easily dismissed when you realize you just went 600 miles on one tank of fuel.

They were very friendly. I called ahead to inquire about a car they had online. The salesman was very friendly and had the car ready for me to look at when I arrived. I drove it around and we made a deal. Everything was very fast and easy. I was in and out of the dealership with financing within about 2 hours. It is in a good location and has very professional staff.
