purchased used with only 57K. Very roomy
and comfortable. Steering and suspension
built excellent for long interstae rides
- the driver does not tired, the front
passanger can read or sleep. Therefore
poor handling on twisty mountain roads:
you need to react earier than usual, but
I got used to it. I didn't like the
seats. but again no seat is comfortable
for everyone, my wife liked it. Head
gusket failed at 63K, a disgusting knock
in the engine emerged soon after that.
Starter died at 75K. Now (98K) there is
a problems with either driveaxle or
18-21 MPG city, 22-26 highway. Average
for 6 cyl in 94

This car is comfortable to ride in. It
can accommodate up to 8 people with the
foldout back seat. Things that tend to
break are more unusual. Starter motor
and ignition switch, window
buttons,windshield wiper motor. We did
have to have the engine replaced under
warranty because of a drip from the oil
I like the car and find that it is
reliable. I'd buy the car again. I have
to say I don't like the redesign as much.

1st year: Dealership ripped me off:
water pump, fuel pump, 2 starters
(defective parts), keyless entry DOA,
various hoses and the coin holder is
holding the previous owners pennies
hostage. Dealership had it longer than
I did the first month. 2nd year: Since
then: replaced radiator, 1 starter,
replaced 1 brake light, a/c died, radio
is losing it too, blown head gasket and
2 other leaks, at least one of us has
carbon monoxide poisening, tranny is
leaking, 6 mn. old radiator leaking.
Dealership has it now and for me to
repair it will turn it upside down!
Consumer reports did not say anything
about a defective head gasket!
