I bought a 2007 Infiniti G35x about 2 years ago from Green Light . I had the best experience here. Carlos, the finance manager got me approved with a very good rate and the service department took care of all my concerns I had with the car before I took it home. Jay, my salesman was exceptionally patient and answered every question I had. This place is a pressure free environment and I highly recommend it. I am currently in the market for another car and I will be visiting them very shortly. Thank you Green Light and all your staff.

ROW M030 Suspension is VERY stiff. Fantastic road holding comes at cost of uncomfortable bump handling.

It's a great car that really lives up to the Porsche name, but keep in mind it is older. The electronics such as the CPU can be annoying when the weather changes.

I am the third owner of this car and that may be one owner too many. Every 3 months or so something new goes wrong with it, and I have a laundry list of parts I need to restore it like new. Don't get me wrong, I love this car like the mother of a new born baby, but it just never stays in operation. I highly recommend it if you already have a daily driver and want a fun car for the weekend, but if you use it everyday like I do, your heart will be broken again and again.

No regrets - Love my Boxster

I bought this car almost 4 years ago with 36,000 miles; I was concerned given the age but I've wanted a Porsche my entire life and couldn't resist the deal. I did buy a 3yr warranty but canceled it after learning most everything I was concerned about was not covered and considered maintenance items - I was refunded $3000.00 and best thing I ever did. My Boxster just hit 45,000 miles and I still smile from ear to ear when I drive her. No major problems outside of routine maintenance and yes, they are expensive to maintain but your driving a Porsche guys, not a Chevy.... Just had the 45K service done, costed $1400.00 but I had all the pulley's replaced because 1 was squeaking. BUY ONE

All I can say is wow! I purchased a used Porsche Boxster for 10k in Feb/Mar 2010, and could not have been happier. The car now has over 108,000 miles on it, and runs like a champ. It easily got up to 122 mph while passing cars driving down that middle lane* (stupid thing to do, but it was just too easy) without realizing how fast the car was going. Driving country roads in East Texas at high speeds (90 mph around 40 mph curves and 120 mph ++ on straight-aways) is a breeze.* apparently there are 2 radiators and it holds 7 gallons of coolant. My water pump went out while I was on the freeway and all that extra fluid saved my motor. *I no longer drive like I mentioned above, but had to share

When I got this Box 2 1/2 years ago, I had just finished driving a 1994 Honda Civic 220,000 miles from brand new. It was time for a new car. I love my Boxster. It's not the fastest car around but it drools every time we find a twisty back road. This car sticks like glue and I never feel out of control even in forced slides on wet pavement. (Hey, gotta have some fun some times!) I've taken it on long trips (over 600 miles in a day) and I have no back ache even though I'm 6'2". If you're thinking about getting one, do your research and get one now! I'm sorry I waited so long to do it myself.

My Boxster needs an ignition switch replacement and my research indicates that the part sells for approximately $35. The dealership I go to informed me this morning that there has been a change in how they replace them now. They cannot just change that one part; they must do the entire assemby. Quoted me over $600. Can anyone tell me if this sounds realistic? Thank you.

My car at 8 years of age, but only 39,000 miles developed mixing of oil & coolant. There is no fix except a rebuilt engine ($14,000) from Porsche. One mechanic stated ran into problems needing parts on teardown that Porsche wouldn't supply. Turns out my problem not unique, Could not find one mechanic (coast to coast) or PCA or other tech advisers who had any other fix. Do your own research before buying any Porsche with M96 engine family which includes all Boxsters and 911's from 1999 through 2008. Bruce Gray, Roadrunner Region PCA

Great car. Owned Porsche's for 35 years until this car began to mix coolant and oil. NO FIX except rebuilt engine. Discovered not unusual. I will perhaps buy a Porsche again but NOT with M96 engine (1999-2008). NO help from PCNA or Porsche even for car with only 39,000 miles. Since average Porsche owner drives 6,000 miles a year, cars are usually out of warranty when the trouble strikes. Problem seems that no mechanic wants to take the engines apart, so only fix is $15,000 factory rebuilt engine. There are estimates out there suggesting 20% of this engine group cars will fail before hit 100,000 miles. Kind of like playing lottery to buy one. Ask a few mechanics about this!!!

Very fun car to drive because of it's looks, speed, and handling. It is definitely a head turner. The engine power is good with excellent passing gear acceleration. Great interior design as you can actually speak to one another with the top down at any speed. One of the best sports cars I have owned or have been in. Instrument panel is plain and all controls easy to get to.

I've owned many sports cars in my time -- and convertibles too -- like my MG, and more recenly like my Miata. Both were fun. But graduating to the Boxster is like one day waking up with super powers. It is just that startling. The handling is sublime, the road feel and gearing are wonderful, the whole package is great. The torque curve is well, nonexistent. The engine and gearing are such that you just accelerate smoothly and very quickly. It has been a year, and I am still madly in love with driving this car. It is demanding to drive -- yes - can take your total concentration, but if you live in an area with twisty roads and a benign climate, the it rewards you on a daily basis.

This car is a joy to drive. They did an excellent job of designing the car so that you can carry on a conversation at normal voice levels with the top down. This car makes driving fun again! This is the closest I have felt to a car - since I was a young pup and bought a new 944. I am getting tremendous gas mileage. I got over 29 mpg on a day trip a few weekends ago.

I bought my Boxster used and it is by far the finest handling car I have ever driven, that includes several other Porsches. The steering, balance and brakes permit you to drive turns very fast with no discomfort for you or the passenger. It has required no unscheduled maintenance in 56,000 miles, uses no oil and averages about 27 mpg. The chassis could handle more power (but I could have bought and "S" if that is what I was looking for). There are no water leaks, the top is still like new as are the paint and interior. These are great used car buys because of considerable depreciation compared to a 911. Just be sure to have an experienced Porsche mechanic do a pre- purchase inspection to avoid surprises.

The Porsche Boxster is an extension of the driver. The steering is precise, the brakes are right there, the midship mounted engine is very responsive, and the car is well balanced. Mine is a daily driver that handles driving slowly in town and at speed on country roads equally well.

my triple black boxter is slower than the bmw m3 I replaced it for but I am looking into engine upgrades. I get a lot more looks on the road with the boxter and lots of complements. Not as fast as the 95 ferrari 355 but lower maintnence. This is not a honda so dont complain when you take it in for service or a 190 dollar porsche oil change. wonder how much safty fetures they put in it?? a lot and how did they fit everything so tight?? My bmw m3 would take the off ramp at 45-50 and the porsche boxter holds it tight at 60mph though one time at 65 she sliped a little so there is a limit.

I love my 2001 triple black Boxster! I have yet to have any problems with "Precious". She's has lots of attitude, likes living in the fast lane is decadent but is always a lady. This automobile's handling is so smooth and agile. In addition, both the transmission and the engine are buttery smooth. My car uses no oil between 5,000 oil changes (Mobile I 15-50) which I do myself. The top looks brand new and has no wind noise at speed or water leaks. The interior looks new as well and has held up nicely. The paint glistens as if freshly lacquared. In summary, this car exceeds my every expectation in performance, smoothness, reliability, dependability and looks. Ownership is highly recommended!

Surprisingly, this car has had numerous annoying minor electrical problems. While they have all been covered with excellent dealer provided service under warranty, the lack of reliability is a bit surprising. Required replacement of: Power window switch and motor; ignition switch (this one caused problems starting the car); turn signal bulb; and headlight switch (not good if your trying to drive home at night). All of this within 9000 miles/3 years.

My father got this car a couple of years ago and its a helluva lot of fun. Its amazing taking a turn with a sign warning you to go 15 at around 60 and not have a second thought about it. Had a Z3 before the Boxster and it doesnt even compare in terms of handling, style or power. Pricing isnt great, but considering the alternatives, its not bad either. Just watch out cuz 50 turns into 80 real quick when your not payin attention.

At 75 yrs of age, a Boxster S was the last thing I had in mind. Contemplated an Audi A6 and saw this little Lapiz Blue sculpture on the showroom floor. I had to have it before I die. Have never regretted it. Have owned exciting cars all my life but nothing like this. The design and performance is a tribute to man's quest for excellence. I hope they never change the shape,..like the Taj mahal,..it's eternal.

I bought it used with 18K miles and have put over 20K miles in a year. It has been very reliable, comfortable, has plenty of luggage space and gets 24 mpg. Buying used, I saved about $10K and I get an extra year of warranty and did not have to deal with the teething problems it appears a brand new one has. Overall, it has been a fun wonderfull experience which the dealer has been a big part of.

I've had this car 2.5 years, put on 10,200 miles and it developed an oil leak. Took it into the Dealership, they recommeded a 15,000 mile service because the time I had owned it not the mileage on it. Left the car there, got a call saying the car had a bad seal that could not be repaired and they needed to replace the engine. One good thing, Porsche is picking up the tab because it's still under warranty. But why is a Boxster S with 10,200 miles need a new engine?

As anyone who has drien one will know, this is not a great primary car. If you must drive it aruond every day, expecially on long distances, it may not be for you. If you are able to pick up a second car, definately consider the Boxter. I am most impressed with the handling and pickup. I could not be happier.

I tested about everything before getting the Boxster S; Audi TT, BMW Z, Ferrari, MB, 911, etc. All things considered, the S was the clear winner. I guess the bottom line is, If I were buying today, I would still choose a Boxster. Although I would probably buy a used one that was low milage.

I have owned my Guards Red 2001 Boxster S for about 2 years now...my first Porsche. The Germans really know how to engineer and building a sports car! Within a month or two of purchasing my S, however, I was already planning my upgrade. The cockpit could use a little more room (I am 6'-2)...and of course as a car enthusiast I would love so more horsepower! Of course thats why they make the 911. All in all, the S is one hell of roadster for us "high end" sports car beginners...

You can't buy a Boxster expecting to get a Carrera or an M5... If you need .5 seconds faster in 0-60 there are a lot cheaper ways to go, but if you're shopping Porsche it's probably because you *want* one-- you're not looking for a cheaper ride. Yep, it has rattles with the top up and the stereo is marginal. What are you doing with the top up and stereo on? Get a BMW sedan. The real sound system is 6" behind your head! When cornering I've never driven a better car; the looks still turn heads all day; and it sounds amazing @5300RPM. Seriously consider a 3-6 month old used one-- some serious savings over the sticker price.

The Good: Excellent handling especially around turns, fun with the top down, overall design, steering wheel, cup holders, quick, good engine sound, Dealership response to problems usually within the same day. The not so good: plastic rear window, rattle in door, manual seat adjustments, minor electrical issues. They don't call it a boxster for nothing. What you buy is the box...everything else is extra. For the money, some things should be included (wheel emblems, floor mats, etc.). It just feels like they are nickel and diming you.

The Porsche Boxster is always a pleasure to get in and drive. Wheather you go for a leasurly drive with the top down or rev up the RPMs to almost 7000 you have the response and controle of a true sports car. Never get tired of getting and driving this car.

I've had mine for a year now and it is without question the best automotive purchase I've ever made. Had a 2000 BMW before this, but the Boxster S is so much more fun. It turns every drive into an event. I have had no major problems with mine. I've taken it to the track twice. I drive it hard and it never complains. This is THE roadster to buy. Go with your gut, forget logic and spring for a Boxster before you're too old to enjoy it.

Plunging resale shocks me

Fun car to drive, lots of thumbs up from other drivers. Shocked when I went to trade it at 7 months and 7,000 miles to find value had dropped by 25-30%...dealer says Porsche shipping too many into US market. A squeak/rattle trap with top up .

No Substitute
