Benefits of Driving a 2009 Lotus Elise Convertible

Lotus takes the sports car mentality to heart, with slippery curves, an open top and a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds. The 4-cylinder Toyota-sourced engine may seem small, but there is not an ounce of extra weight on the Elise, which keeps both the sticker price low and fun quotient high.

What's new for 2009?

There are a few changes for 2009, such as a standard tire pressure monitoring system. Interior upgrades include a high-definition LCD panel, reduced clutter in the dashboard, and customizable display options. The new integrated key design also includes an alarm/immobilizer system.

Model Strengths

  • Distinctive roadster styling
  • 0-60 in less than five seconds
  • fuel economy
  • fun weekend racer

Model Review

This car has been available in Europe for a decade, while the U.S. had to wait until 2005 for the roadster to hit American shores. In the years since, little has changed for the Elise. A few variants have been made available, like the SC supercharged version, and new paint colors have been added to the two standard-issue choices.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 3 Years/36,000 Miles
Drivetrain 2 Years/Unlimited Miles
Corrosion 8 Years/Unlimited Miles
