I bought this car new in August 2000 and have driven it for 11 years.
That's 11 years on the streets of Chicago -- cold winters, hot summers, wheel-chewing potholes -- you name it, we have it.
I hit 100,000 miles at the end of 2006, and now it's over 186,000.
Took a road-trip to Seattle circa 2008; what a way to travel!
The car was totally reliable through about 2008.
After that, problems started creeping up, but that's hardly surprising for its age, mileage, and driving conditions.
Given a choice, I'd buy this car again in a second.
I'll be driving it till it stops.
Best features are the lighting-fast top (ruined by Chrysler in newer models) and smooth ride.
The car still looks beautiful -- not dated -- eleven years later.
A drive to work with the top down on a nice day is like a little mini vacation.
