The engine is powerful enough to provide good acceleration from a standing start and when passing or merging into traffic. Basic trim and accesories; no frills. Seat adjustments make it easy to get comfortable. Stereo passable. Instrument cluster very functional. Handling OK for a large car, but on very windy roads, it's work to drive. Easy in and out, both front and back.
The dual control air conditioner. Super gas mileage: 22-26 mpg around town; 32-36 on Interstates. I got 38 mpg one tankful. Must have been going downwind.
Upgrade the music system. Make the A/C vents adjustable on more than one axis. That is, make the whole vent move up and down and side-to-side. At present, they move just left and right, with the louver moving the air up and down.
