Handling is precise and predictable, a
sure mark of quality craftsmanship.
Not like BMW, but has tight riding -
you can feel the contour of road
surface in a well tamed manner.
Surprizingly reliable driving and
traction in various inclement weather
conditions - A+. If you make sure
that air filter, spark plugs, and
engine oil are clean, then you will be
surprised with its mileage. Mine has
115,000 miles on it, and drives about
27 miles per gallon faithfully on
highway with some inner city driving
combined. Today it recorded
27.4miles/gallon on my trip to
Richmond. Not too bad at all for such
a heavy machine!
Definitely a nice bang for the bucks.
Nice indoor trim. Very gentle &
handsome hind look. Refer to my
review for other likable characters.
D4 lamp never survives more than
100,000 miles. Exhaust-manifold
cracked. $1000 to fix (not covered by
factory recall wty for 1998 model).
If it had more kick on acceleration.
Seats may be tiring for long distance.
