I bought the car new in May of 1998
after ordering a platinum exterior with
camel leather interior (not the normal
combination). Other than 2
transmission speed sensors (approx.
$100 each) and the driver's side window
regulator, this car has cost me nothing
but regular maintenance. First set of
brake pads at 113,000 miles, battery at
111,000, flush cooling system and
transmission system at 116,000 miles.
Oil changes every 3000 miles only cost
$8.43 at the dealer. I sold my 94 ES
to a friend and it is still being
driven with 160,000 miles.
Style, comfort, trunk size, AutoStick,
great on highway, smooth but still firm
Would like to see some "gee wiz"
features such as: redundant stereo
controls on steering wheel, telescopic
steering wheel, heads up display (like
Pontiac), and power (vs. manual) lumbar
