This has been a great vehicle. We traded our 1998 STS for a 2000 STS with low miles because of the infamous oil leak on the '98. That problem was expensive to repair, $3,000 - $4,000. We bought this one used with a warranty because we just enjoy this car! It has been great for a 2000 model. It has no squeaks, no mechanical issues, and still runs like the day we first got 'er.
The body style, fit, and finish. It has a great sound system and 300 horsepower.
I think they could do a better job on the paint though. It is a little too orange peelish for a car which rolls off the line at $50,000. Buy really good tires for improved handling and quietness of ride.
