This car was fun to drive, looked
sharp, was very dependable, and had
most of the creature comforts and
extras. It was roomy and could haul my
entire drum set, and it could provide
ample leg room and comfort for
passengers in both front and back. It
was also a good value as used car - you
get a lot of bang for your buck when
buying one of these. I got the car with
just under 70,000 miles on it. Repairs
were minimal up until the car started
getting over 100,000 miles on it. When
I sold it, it had 120,000 miles on it
and was still running like the day when
I bought it.
The 3.5L 214HP engine was my favorite
feature. When you stomped on the pedal,
that car would give a satisfying growl
as the engine revved. It was very
responsive despite the size. I also
loved the air conditioner - it blew ice
cubes - best one I've ever seen.
My biggest complaints were a slightly
mushy ride (it bounced a little more
than I would have liked). When you had
a drink in the driver's cupholder, it
blocked your hand somewhat from taking
it's natural route to reach the shifter
on the floor console.
