September 12, 2006I say go for it too. But I'm biased, I love driving mine.
At 64k miles, it's been an exceptional vehicle. I've blown spark plugs out a few times early on but other than regular maintenance, a few TSB's and small items (crankshaft position sensor, foglamp fell out when it was brand new, loose moulding-must have been BEER:30 and the factory on a Friday) it's been relatively problem free and a blast to drive.
I also had a 2000 Lightning and it was a bucket of bolts!
2001 and up, I'd say go for it. They'll never make them again!
