Purchased new, passed 100,000 earlier this year. Cars these days have become more powerful, but in 1999, this car was the best bang for the buck other than the high-school-kid-styling Camaro/Firebird twins. Works well as a daily driver, but fun to drive and can burn some rubber when you feel like it. Aside from a few initial fit/finish issues, car has been very reliable with no major fixes. I did recently have to have the rear differential rebuilt with new parts for >$2k due to the oil leaking out after poorly designed speed bumps dented the diff. case. However, I believe this was a freak incident and should be even less likely to happen to a stock car. (Mine is lowered around 1.5".)
Torque! Exhaust note. Decent stereo with the Mach 460 system. Improved handling with Eibach Pro-kit aftermarket springs
Front seat headrests are atrociously designed, with very poor positioning. Interior trim is cheap, but then I guess that's how they put in that much power in an affordable package. Trunk interior ceiling gets lower as you go deeper in, and can be limiting.
