Biggest piece of junk I owned. I will just list a few of the things I replaced that I can think of off the top of my head. Ball joints, radiator, 4 injectors, 3 wheel barings, 2+ CV joints, muffler, leaks oil, digital dash goes in and out, clutch, window motor, blower motor, AC compressor, brakes, brake pistons, transmission mount. I'll stop there but I am sure there were more things. Heck all of those things were replaced between 4/98-10/00 then I gave the thing away free because I hated the thing so much! There was a radio station where I lived that said "Crank up the volume so you dont hear that funny noise your car is making" and that is exactly what i always did with that junker!
Quick, sounded cool for a V-6 (like most of those 3.1L do. But the most favorite thing was I knew it was going to Vehicle Hell because there was no fogiving that piece of crap! Taught me that the "feel good" feeling of buying American does not feel good for long!
Remove everyone of them from the road because there are a hazard to the driver as well as the public. Another suggestion is to spend a little more on an Accord because it will be cheaper in the long run. Unless of course you like spending all your time in the parts store and under the hood.
great running car but after 200,000
miles the wear is starting to show.
best part is im a mechanic backyard
mainly but enough to fix all the major
problems that have occured on the
vehicle itself. the engine and
transmission have been fully rehauled
so the motor does not have but 60,000
on it ive replace all the interior,
seats, dash and some other misilanous
parts in fact an entire page worth
limiting the problems for the next
buyer the reason for selling is the
fact that i have a better car to drive
but this is a great start for any new
driver that is still learning real easy
to drive and very dependable

Vehicle has been dependable and
reliable. I have done my own
maintenance since new. I use synthetic
oil, and have had no engine problems.
Torque converter solinoid went bad,
ssems to be common, but curable. Have
replaced a some injectors. Overall
value has been great. I would buy
another if they still sold them. I
have 175k miles on this one, and still
going strong. 25mpg hwy, 21 city.
Anyone that can't keep a car running
this long or longer, doesn't know how
to maintain a car.

Although the styling is real nice,
there have been too many
reliability problems with the on board
computer system for a recommendation.
I experienced problems with stalling
and shutting off after extended
highway driving. This does not
represent too much of a problem if you
are in town with plenty of
opportunities to get a quick tow.
However, if you are not armed with a
cellphone and are in the middle of
nowhere, as was my experience, this
little auto will leave you high and
dry if it decides to act up. The
exterior bits are also inferior. The
side molding comes off after a few
years and the rubber handle to the
turn signal tends to slide off.
