This car has been nothing but a major
problem. It was fun to drive for about 1,000
miles after I bought it, then the troubles
began. In a span of about 6 weeks, I
experienced a blown head gasket, ruptured
CV joint, and an oil leak as well as problems
with the alternator, fan belt, and coolant
leaks. This car is appealing at first glance,
but it has a history of these problems.
5-speed handles well, V-6 is quiet at high
speeds. Sunroof. Room for 5.
Fuel economy is bad for a compact sedan
(19-26 mpg). Comparable German cars
(BMW 3 Series, Mercedes 190E and C-
Class, even VW Jetta) are more reliable.
