Review

My previous car was a '87 BMW 325. Got 257,000 miles with no major repairs - wonderful car. I have 150,000 on this car - just replaced the drive-shaft, control arm is going and some bushings as well. The transmission (auto) has slipped twice and my mechanic tells me it will need to be replaced soon. That's about $7000 total. I expected much better reliability, especially compared to my previous car.

Best Features

Handling (I have a Dinan kit installed). Audio system.

Worst Features

Enviro control servos in the dash are unreliable. Overall reliability. Cup holders.
