Review

These cars blow headgaskets!!I wish I knew they blew ON ALL before I bought it.I didn't even have plates on it and the head gasket blew.Check engine light comes on at random, sometimes will go months in between occurences. I will be driving along, all of a sudden it starts hesitating and the check engine light comes on then goes right back off.I drive for a few more minutes and it works fine. Then stop at a traffic light and it runs fine then all of a sudden just stalls no hesitation no drop in rpm just bang its off. It takes water at random.In short, DO NOT BUY THE 3.8L V6!!!!! Seems as if the V8 is okay though, from what I've heard and read.

Best Features

The seats are VERY comfortable. It is one of the most comfortable cars I have ever driven. Too bad the lazy 145 hp V6 is WAY underpowered. The climate control is nice.

Worst Features

FIX THE HEADGASKETS!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, the brakes wear out like crazy, ADD MORE HP, this thing barely moves. 145hp on a car this size???? COME ON!!!
