I originally wrote a review in 9/2006 shortly after purchasing the car pre-owned.
As we approach the sixth anniversary of purchase, we are delighted to report that this has been the best sedan we have owned!
In our entire ownership, we have replaced a relay fuse ($50), a manifold gasket ($300) and a wheel bearing ($225).
We finally replaced the original tires and breaks a little more than a year ago.
Speaking of tires, my earlier review spoke of front end road noise.
This disappeared with new tires.
The car was originally equipped with cheap Uniroyals.
The car still looks great, and runs and runs and runs!
It replaced a Nissan which we purchased new & was totally unreliable.
