I have loved the size and power of this
car, which I bought used. The several
tall people in my family love the
interior room. Repairs have been more
frequently than I had hoped, and
usually were expensive. At 100,000 I
have had two lifter jobs, replaced all
the struts and upper mounts, replaced
the radiator, and have done the
expensive tie rod repair. The exterior
body is very attractive and is holding
up well over the years. The wheel
covers have worn out and are very
expensive to replace.
The body styling and interior room are
great. The 3.5L engine has real power.
The cruise control does not hold the
speed constant over hilly terrain. Car
and its parts need better durability--
owners expect their cars to last well
over 100,000 miles nowadays. I will
have replaced everything by then.
