Nope, but its small, Japanese, and you don't exactly see junkyards full of them. Parts are cheap and plenty for most domestics espcially Chevys.

Bwhat? Well that's just a buggah. I would've bet money that they were only 5-speeds. I guess I'm just livin' in the past.

Further research: 2000-2001 was manual only; 2002-2006 had the CVT option (and a huge hit in FE). Just doesn't make much sense...

If I had money to replace the battery pack, cat, and other gadgetry, then maybe.

If it had an alternator, then i'd def buy one and drive it without the pack once it died.

Insurance may be high due to the scarcity of body shops skilled enough to re-work the aluminum sheet panels. The Audi A8 has insane repair costs because the frame is also aluminum.

"I've been looking into the no-plug 2 seater and must say that I'm tempted... Just wondering if anybody here has one, and if the mileage gains are worth the high repairs. Gotta love that styling!"
I've had one for six years with no real problems. Honda extended the IMA warrenty to 10 years 150,000 miles last year. My lifetime mileage was 74.3 at 70,000 miles but has since dropped to 68.3 at 93,000 miles. (moved north to hill country)
