Nice little sports car
Added: 15th of November 2013
Where many sports cars are best pictured in the south of France with a lady behind the wheel, the MR2 is definitly a mans car. It lacks unnessary adornments to the point of starkness,a suspension that borders on discomfort and a hood which requires skill and muscule to raise. The vvti engine is economical if driven carefully, but a heavy foot produces more than a lot of noise. Definitly a car with character. Pros: Fast and fun to drive, especially with the roof down. Cons: Noisey, especially with roof down on motorways. Lacks luggage space (small area behind the seats), worth considering jettisoning the spare (carry a tyre sealant cylinder)to give extra space. Mechanical failings are the aluminium radiator, being so close to the road, tends to rot, especially if driven on salted roads. The other problem that I have encountered is rattles from the exhaust, usually caused by one of the many heat sheilds.
