This is the perfect alternative to a BMW 3 series...in price and performance...I bought this car in November 2004 and have put 6000 trouble- free miles on it...I bought the car with a very low 43,213 miles on it which attracted me. I looked at the car and it was the perfect color inside/out (Gray Leather/Silver). What pleases me is the heated seats, excellent Bose CD system, Leather and comfortable seats. The automatic climate control is efficient and works properly. Performance is a huge plus in this car. There is a 3.0 liter engine under the hood and the dual pipes out of the rear end complement its 200 horses.
Leather, Sunroof, Bose CD, Heated and Comfortable Seats, Savvy Styling, Exhaust sound (stock too!), Engine, Performance, and Reliability
A little more luxury convieniences which better in the 98-99 models. (Only problem with the 98-99 models is the bland grille, which obviously can be replaced, the grille on the 97 is sportier)
