Review
All good until about 80K miles; lots of problems: heating system, starting problems with electronics; biggest yet is poor to non-existent acceleration when pushing excelerator pedal down! Bogs down, much resistence - like trying to pull a train car. This happens at all speeds, especially noticed when moving from stopped position. RPMs wind up to near 6K with pedal to the floor before tranny shifts. Sluggish accelration occurs only when the car is warmed up/hot - runs great in morning for about 3 minutes, then the problem starts. Cats replaced to no effect. O2 sensor replaced to no effect. Dealership mechanics cannot figure out what is wrong.
Favorite Features
Right now, none!
Suggested Improvements
Mechanically, electronically unsound. Fix this stuff and helf local dealer repair/service shops solve riddles like the one I've stated above.
