This car has been a pleasure to own and
drive. The 3.4L is strong, reliable
and well engineered. Other than
replacing the alternator at 75,000
miles, I have never had to put a dollar
into it other than routine maintanence
(Plugs, Oil changes, air filter etc.).
I just replace the timing belt at
82,000 (recommended at 60,000) and it
showed very little wear. I do all
maintanence myself and it is relatively
to work on. The only negative is the
standard sound system. Pretty pathetic
if you are an audiophile.
