So far, not bad....

ReviewHave 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.
Best FeaturesStyling (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 upon startup.
Worst FeaturesRear 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 extremely annoying.)
