This is a smooth "boulevard" cruiser in the classic sense, with surprising handling and braking capability. Once you become accustomed to the car's obvious size, you will enjoy the confidence this vehicle gives you. It feels safe, planted, comfortable, and powerful. The "ride and handling" package is a must in my opinion.
Powertrain smoothness and responsiveness. Brakes, ride, rear-wheel drive, and comfort round out likes.
Most improvements I could list here are already addressed in later model years. My 2000 is perfect for my uses, but if you desire the latest safety equipment, and center console features, check '05.
