I bought this car when it had 83,000 miles on it and it was 5 years old. I feel it is the most reliable car I have ever owned. 202,000 miles with regular maintenance. It does wear out front rotors quickly, I've replaced them 3 times. The only repair I have made is a new serpentine belt and a radiator. A/C has a slow leak but its nearly 10 years old. I love this car, it accelerates well, rides smooth and has plenty of interior room.
Better stock stereo, came with a cassette deck from factory.
Bought this car as a leftover in 1998
for $16,000. 3.5 motor has plenty of
power. Car handles great! Soft ride,
great control Repair costs have
totalled about $100 since brand new. A
little rough on the front rotors, 2
sets in 60k. Holds 5 people in
comfort. Would buy this car again in a
Power, handling. V-6 mounted north and
south....very little torque-steer.
Radio is junk. One replaced under
warranty and now second one is bad. In
cold weather check engine light is
tripped too easily by plug misfire.
Dealers no longer give a hoot about
working on these models.
I've always liked sedans for their
ride and have nothing but compliments
for this car. Even after six years
this car still has great acceleration
and handling. Only two minor
problems...power steering pump years
ago and hard starting some times
(cold). Otherwise, terrific!
