Review

My wife and I bought this one owner car thinking it would the best choice we could make.WRONG.After owning it for 1 year we start having transmission trouble.$1400.00,4 months,and 4 bottles of Advil extra strength later we still have the same problem.It shutters real bad when taking off from stop.And just when every wants to scream about ford transmissions,Gm aint no more better.My Mechanic Worked for ford for 22 yrs.never has seen this before.If it weren't for true, i would tell you.The car is well worth the money if GM would fix for free.Oh Yeah!I almost forgot....If you plan on changing your battery,let Gm do it.My gas hand and temp. hand don't work now.broke when i changed it myself.Good


Best Features

Our car has every optition except a working gas and temp hang...


Worst Features

Please help me understand.With only 240hp. You can't build transmission to hold up.......

Review

My car was bought with 98k from a very small dealership. He put 4 new Eagle GT's on and fixed the stabilizer strut which was worn from normal wear. I had a set of front struts put on and left the rears alone, then tuned it up with a fresh set of NGK Iridium plugs,a K&N air filter and oil filter, and use full synthetic oil. The car runs,drives,and performs perfect,with no problems at all. There's something to say about putting top quality tune- up components and oils into your vehicle,don't be affraid to invest a little money because the results will be very noticable.


Best Features

Leather heated seats are very comfortable. Supercharged performance is awesome. Traction is unbeatable as well as braking. I've had tremndous luck with this car! I actually get approx. 22 mpg around town and have gotten up to 30 mpg on the highway. Super unleaded fuel is the only drawback.


Worst Features

None. I wish I had the factory moonroof and the OnStar in, but I think I will get it put in.

Review

for a large car, looks sleek & fast.
comfortable road car, gets 27 to 32 MPG
on highway, 17 t0 18 around town.
exceptional, effortless acceleration,
very fast & quiet ride. transmission
shifts smoothly & quiet.at 60,000
miles, no mechanical problems, totally
reliable car. minus side, uses premium
fuel, soft, mushey cornering, not a
mountain racer. I would buy this car
again, used, a great value.


Best Features

appearance, comfort, acceleration, dependability are all plus. also the car is loaded with features that spoil one in a very short time, too many to list.


Worst Features

the side airbags & "on star" are standard on the newer models & make for the only improvements I would recommend.
