Bought the car after lease in July of 2001 from dealer. Since then I have already replaced the breaks (rotors worn totally down) and had the transmission completely rebuilt at only 41,303 milesand $2200. The electrical system has also failed twice (all power and guages shut down while driving). As I am typing this my car is sittig at AAMCO for the second time since purchase.
Sporty styling, peppy V6 engine (if transmission doesn't slip), vast trunk space, and good interior room for midsize (I am 6'4" and can sit comfortably in the back seat).
Fix rotor problem on brakes. Better gas mileage. Fix electrical system. Instead of wheel covers, have alloy wheels.
