I've had a green one since 1996,
bought it new. In 108,000 miles it's
had every maintenance. Replaced the
worn top cloth twice now just for
appearance, it has never, ever leaked.
No really big repairs under the hood,
though. Fan motor resistor recently
replaced as well as other small items,
switch. I think the elegant, block of
steel design inside and out will age
well. I have thoroughly enjoyed it in
the South. I'd heartily recommend such
a classi look and smooth performer.
The reason it feels underpowered is
that it weighs nearly 4,000 pounds.
It's not gotten a good reputation and
sales were never brisk. It's really a
super, solid car.
