It does make a really nice kit, and I don't really get most of the discussions about the accuracy of the smaller details. I think it is more important to have a kit, have fun building it and looks decent to the real car. So what if the panels are a little of or the tailgate is slightly in a different angle...

I use quotes because frankly, this thing should have never hit the stores in the first place as it's still not right from the first time. I COULD fix this one, but I won't when there's much better bodies to start with. (AMT/MPC and better yet, Johan)
You can check out the thread here to see what he did, but it's not for the faint of heart!

Ron Hamilton has corrected one; check w/him (search for his build) to find out all he did to fix the rear fender. The top edge from the door back needs a lot of recontouring, and the bevel between the bodyside and the taillight panel is also rather wide by a factor of two. Study pictures of a real car and the model. If you can see the issues and it bothers you, it's some work. If it's not that bad, just build it. If you reshape the fenders you'll need new decals too. That's also why it bothers me so much...the fender is so off that the decals look all wrong and magnify it.
