These cars have excellent
accident survivability. I was
broadsided two years ago by a Saab
running a red light at 64 mph, and
there was no penetration into the cabin
and no injuries to myself. The poor
Saab was severly mangled. The funniest
part was that my car was still driveable
(yes the rear axle was completely
lopsided but it moved). My car is 14
years old and it still outshines most
new mid size sedans in style, in
performance, and even durability. My
best friend purchased a Buick Regal
only to have it break down on the
freeway 41,000 miles!
4.0L v8 engine delivers plenty of power
while still maintaining fuel economy.
The car easily handles cruising speeds
in the 100-120mph range. Top speed is
actually 160 mph!
The brakes were upgraded on newer
years. If you hit 160, make sure you
have several miles to stop. Repairs
are costly, however infrequent.
