Have owned for 1 year. No major
problems thus far, a few minor ones.
Check engine light after one month,
covered by warranty. Clunking noise in
front end, link bar. Front rotors
warped at 40,000 mi., replaced. That's
it so far for repairs. Windshield fogs
up more than any vehicle we've had.
Ditto for static buildup, touching
doors while exiting will light you up
every time. Windows squeak horribly
while going up. Transmission can shift
a bit rough when cold. Engine has
performed well, but I'm nervous about
2.7's shady history. Many failures,
particularly in '98's and '99's. Very
prone to sludging up, make certain oil
changes are done on time, every time.
Styling (A+++), quiet ride, very roomy
interior, user-friendly controls and
instrument cluster. Performs excellent
in all weather, including Canadian
winters, although transmission can be
a bit jerky in extremely cold weather
Rear visibility makes
reversing a real adventure. Gas
mileage so-so for highway,
guage needle drops frighteningly quick
in stop and go around town. Power
window operation on accessory would be
a real treat (turning ignition on
while parked to operate windows
