Bought the car with 80k, it now has 180k. What a car! Nothing similar in looks, quality, or drive. Quality all-over. Love this car, will probably buy a newer one. No major troubles after 180k. Interior is spaceous, great car. Can't say enough about it. Two items on wish list though, bigger engine, what's up with the EGR ports? Cleaning them evey 20k, what are they? Is it the lower gas quality? other then that, this car drives like a thoroughbred horse. Only suggestion to you--- buy one.
Style. Quality. Noise control. Drive. Roominess. Did I mention Quality?
Larger engine. Fix EGR ports so they don't need to be cleaned so often. Style improvements are on later years ('99 and above, Cant wait to try those!)
