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.
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.
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!!!
