I bought this car with 64000 mi on it in 2001. For three years I drove it all over my state for work, putting around 25000 miles a year on it. It was comfortable, quiet and NEVER left me stranded. I have never had a major mechanical problem with the car in 5 years / 100,000 miles. About the worst was the oil seals leaking at 66,000 mi. Other than that, we've replaced all the window regulators and have had to clean out the A/C system a few times. That's it! It is absolutely rock solid. The engine and transmission are absolutely perfect at 162,000 miles. It's STILL cushy, comfy and quiet with ice cold air. It has at least another 100,000 miles left in it, without a doubt.
