the lower end i will not choose the Jap cars. the convertible is spirit of speeding, powerful, driving fun, and spirit of america. if u go for a convertible, the comfortable(indeed most of the convertibles are not as comfortable as sedan) and reliability(not the safty) are not the primary things. of course, it must look cool. i will choose Mustang. the price is afforded aroung US$27K for 2000 model. it runs smooth, quicker steering, looks great. goes with 3.8l V6 or 4.6l V8. and it's reliability is above the middle, ranked by 2001 consumer reports. how can u image the mr-2 with only 1.8l engine? same for the miata, 155 hores for LS model(the most powerful one). and for me, the two jap cars look really not admirably as mustang--that's important.
camaro is the one i like too. but the rliability is ranked as bad by the above report. more expensive than mustang. even more horse power, xixi...
no idea for the high end. they are not only a spirit, but also standing for wealth. so not stand for me :)
i tried once the bmw z3, it's ok. but at that time i was driving too carfully because i didn't want to crash it, so, no fun...
u could mention the honda s2000 as between the lower and higher end. 2.0l is a little bit small but the honda's engine is perfect outstanding. and the 9000 rpm is the fastest among the all convertibles as a big supplement. it looks so great that can compare with viper. the price is also in the middle.
hope the above is useful to u.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
