Review
Inside is boring as others have stated, nothing outstanding. Bought with 42K miles on it. Does start every time. Have had issues with intake manifold gasket 2 times. $600.00 each time to repair. Some bands in tranny broke at 142,000 miles, around $750.00 to repair. Went thru tires like water thru a siv. Had to have EVERYTHING replaced including struts and mounts. Have replaced every window motor, now 2 more are out. Replaced egr valve. Seems everything carbons up quickly, just have to make sure to use a good quality cleaner every thousand miles or so. At around 60,000 miles, anti-freeze jelled up and have to have radiator replaced, heater core removed and cleaned. cruise control broken.
Favorite Features
Seats are fairly comfortable, rides nice since everything has been replaced. Feels like a bigger car than what it is. Decent gas mileage, 31 on hiway. It's pretty much a grandpa's car, not sporty or fast.
Suggested Improvements
This car should have had a recall because of the window motors and anti-freeze jelling up causing costly repairs. I have found I can by the window motors on E bay for around 45 each and another 65 in labor. My ASE mechanic stated you can use regular anti freeze in these so switched over at 60K miles and no problem. Now have 210,000 miles on it and still going. Had remote start put on a few months ago and is really great.
