Purchased this car new and have really enjoyed it. Now that it's 8 years old I'm thinking about something else, but this one is still a lot of fun and I only have 65k miles on it. No major problems but have had issues with the navigation system (ok, maybe in 2000 it was OK, but really is a joke by today's standards) a hand full of sensors and what I'm told is carbon build up on the intake plenum that seems to need cleaning all the time.
Excellent handling, even in wet weather. Reasonably fast. Good power throughout the speed range
Dump the Bose sound system. My right rear speaker went belly up about a month after the warranty expired. The dealer hinted that this happens a lot. Nothing like paying a premium for the Bose brand and getting sub par quality
