When I needed to buy a car in a hurry, a mechanic friend recommended this car which was being sold by the owner's estate. In over ten years of driving, it cost less than $1000 in repairs. When the car died in an accident, the motor and transmission were still excellent with over 350000kms (about 220000 miles) on the odometer. It made several trips through the Canadian Rockies and BC mountains towing my 14ft fibreglass trailer without a problem. In over forty years of driving this was the best car I owned for perfomance, reliability and value.
Very smooth ride; a cup of coffee sitting on the dash would not move during the ride. It had enough power with the V6 3.1 litre to maintain speed on steep mountain highways.
With old age the body was starting to rust severely, but no more than other cars in our climate.
