Awsome car! AWD provides great traction. I've dumped the clutch at 5000
in sleet and took off like a dry summer day! comfortable, fast after the initial
turbo lag. By third gear you'r easily breaking the law! Tires aren't cheap and
don't last long in these sizes. 20-25k a set. Problems I've had: Those
chrome wheels are peeling! Failed water pump, alternator, ticking lifters! I've
heard this is a common problem. I was able to have them replaced under
warranty, but they've recently started again after 69k mi.. Right speaker is
going bad radio full of little glitches. Wind comes through the sun roof no
matter how tightly closed at 135 mph!
Acceleration! Handling! Body design! AWD!
Can't improve it, don't make it any more. I'd have suggested redesigning the
lifters and lowering the price! in '96 fully loaded, they were going for $46K+!!
Then sales dropped so they quit making it...Hmmm! Duh.
