Review

I have a love hate relationship with this car. I love that it has 122k on it an other than a few minor problems there hasn't been anything major happen with this car. I bought it because the reliability of these old school tools is reknowned in fleets and with loyal customers. The down side is that if the road is anything less than billiard table smooth the car rattles, squeaks, shakes, and shimmies its way over every bump and pothole on these budget deprived streets of Savannah. No sense of straight ahead on the road. Crosswinds blow the old girl all over the road. And yet, I average 20 miles to the gallon on my commute and can get up into the high 20's on road trips.


Favorite Features

V8, V8, V8. Reliable as a boat anchor and just about as sophisticated. Power everything.


Suggested Improvements

Lousy factory radio. Mine has the trunk mounted CD changer anf the in car cassete. My mazda 626 had a clearer and fuller sound system.

Review

This heavy cruiser is a fantastic highway car getting a high of 27.3 mpg on a trip from Savannah to upstate NY. Smooth ride as long as the hiway is smooth. Poor around town performance as the tall gearing has the transmission constantly downshifting at even the slightest hint of throttle depression. Huge trunk is not the most usable as everything has to fit in the well. Poor sense of straight ahead. Handling is pretty much non existent as the car has very poor steering feel and is easily affected by bumps and ripples on these old Savannah streets. I bought this after an accident thinking that I would be safer. I have been and it has been mechanically reliable but the downside is a boring car


Favorite Features

highway ride and fuel economy, power pedals, climate control, dual power seats, V8 power and smoothness

Review

I bought this car after totaling a 626 in a rear ender. The car is great out on the road. She literally is a land yacht on long interstate trips and I got 27.3 mpg on one trip from GA to upstate NY. Around town here in Savannah is another story. Potholes and washboard surfaces befuddle the old live axle and she's a handful to park and maneuver around the squares in Savannah. and then, of course, when gas went to $4 a gallon even the fair mileage wasn't looking to good.


Favorite Features

Power seats, leather, power pedals, basically if it ain't power it's so so. Steering wheel controls for climate , cruise, and stereo, I grew to like the digital dash. Great V8 moan and power. Automatic day/night mirror


Suggested Improvements

High beam light is almost the same color as gauges, hate the stereo, hate the trunk mounted cd changer, doors squeak and rattle like the cheaply built car this really is. squeaks shimmys, and shivers from down below on these potholes Savannah calls streets. Trade in value is abysmal.

Review

This car is old fashioned boat anchor technology but it cranks and goes reliably every time. Fuel mileage is respectable for the size and weight of the vehicle 18-20 city/suburban 22-27 highway. They don't build them like this anymore and for that we should be both sad and grateful. Sad because it is a very reliable car and great on long distance road trips. Grateful because this car is navigated more than driven and is a festival of squeaks and rattles. Resale value tanks early so if you buy one plan to drive the wheels off it.


Favorite Features

Auto dimmer on mirrors, auto lamp, power seats, power pedals, twin comfort lounge seats. Trip computer


Suggested Improvements

Update chassis components, restyle, and make it roomier. Oh wait I just described the new Taurus. They've quit making Vics can GM be far behind at $4 a gallon gas?
