Review

The new body is very nice, however it
resembles the Camry too much. Fit and
finish are suburb. Night time
instrument panel is magnificent. The
car is full of little conveniences like
the drivers dead pedal,tilt out coin
holder, compass in the rearview mirror,
auto dimming mirrors, overhead grips
for driver and passenger, and wippers
that can be pulled out of the way for
complete windshield cleaning.


Best Features

Fit/finish. Improved seat cushioning. Quiteness. Solid, protected feeling. Abundance of safety features. When feeling frisky, shift selection gate allows for driving as if it were a stick shift. Auto door locks. One touch open/close for all windows and moon roof.


Worst Features

Horsepower/torque to 260 area. More controls on steering wheel. Better daylight instrument view. Allow coin holder to store gas cards, etc. More steering resistance at speed. Drop miles to go,etc.readout. 17" wheels. Elec.tilt/tel & increase up position for easier entry/exit.

after owning Park Avenues and LeSabres
all my life. The standard sound system
is fantastic. Climate control was
wonderful. Tight well-built car.

Sound system, Auto opening windows and moon-roof with remote. Uses 87 octane gas.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.

Review

In this car I just sit back and enjoy
my music in quiet as the car floats
down the highway. Everything in the
interior and exterior is flawless.


Best Features

Automatic windshield wippers and climate control.


Worst Features

Exterior side of car needs some asthetic help. Gold emblem kit should not cost $400 to buy and install. Fuel cap release and trunk release should not be in the same position.Better looking wheels

Review

Purchased for daily commute of 120
miles. Comfortable, quiet, a true
pleasure to sit in and drive. Love the
Mark Levinson sound system and the GPS
Nav system. Puts the enjoyment back in
road trips.


Best Features

Sleek design, almost whisper quiet, excellent highway mileage, 4 position ride controls are awesome.


Worst Features

Needs wood trim for center dashboard console around audio/nav system. Don't like the loose way transmission shifts. More padding for in door armrests for extended drives.
