I have owned this car almost 9 years and it has been a great car to drive. At 62,000 miles new head gasket, transm. 70,000, other then that no problems. Other then usual wear and tear. Vehicle is clean, get's 18 miles in town, & around 28 on the HW. Everything works fine. Vogue tires with 6/32 on front and 7/32 on rear tires. Driven mostly on HW, Paint has great glow, garage kept, and had paint protection done first 5 years. Most driving done with other car in the city.
Paint, tires, plenty of room in cabin for 5 passengers, more then enough truck space. The book says to use premium gas, but I have used 89/92 for the past couple of years, and haven't noticed any change in mileage or performance. You can't beat the Northstar engine, it's the best
I can't think of any improvements that need to be made, it has been perfect for me.
