I bought this car from an auction at 102,000 miles. The transmission died at 116,000 miles, and I mean it. The car left me on the highway. Figures most 1999 models had some kind of transmission problem. Besides the trans, I had various issues ranging from cat to the sensors and some other stuff costing me around $6000 including the trans. Overall do not buy it as a second owner. And the seats make annoying sounds and so does the dashboard and the sunroof. It is annoying, really. However I am sure that these problems are fixed on the 2004 tls so when i can afford one i will definitely buy it.
