This car, once it had a new transmission that matched the engine, there have been no problems. I love this car. It is a dream to drive and at almost 11 years old still gets 20 mph in the city and while driving on long hauls at 75 -80 gets an unbelieveable 28-30 mph. with a truck full of luggage. Too bad they do not make cars with seats this comfortable these days. They are wide and gently curved with tremendous back support. This is especially good if you have sciatic nerve or back problems.
