A good car with extras for the price. It has been dependable and gets about 30 mpg. No major repairs in 5 years. The only issue is the alternator does not appear to put out enough juice in the summer with the air on. My 1998 626 was the same way.
Leather and all extras including the auto off on headlights.
More output on the electrical system, i.e., during the summer with air and lights on
We are very happy with this used car. It
gives no trouble and is quiet. AC and
heat are good. Handling excellent for a
sedan. Really sticks to the road.

I bought this car w/22K miles. Drove
it from SF, to LA, San Diego, and back
and forth from SF to Seattle 4 times.
I never felt safe in this tin can. The
fan belt broke on me, the pass.wind
stopped working, the CD broke after
60K, and the transmission always made
me nervous. I gave it to my sister 2
years ago and bought a LexusGS300
(which i've had problems) The car is
reliable,cheap transportation, but I'd
never concider it again.Turning radius
SUCKS. Parking in dwntn Seattle and SF
is embarassing. Go for
the real thing. Accord or Camery
This car leans so badly on
turns, no ABS and brakes SUCK.Pwr
Ant.broke. Problems after 60+K miles
Gas saver. Body style not bad! I had
maroon w/dark tint. It looked great/I
always used prem.gas and it ran much
better.Otherwise it was a slug w/pass.
Driving alone not that bad!
A great college car for me until I
recently plowed a deer and totalled
the car and deer. Great for carrying
4-5 people with ample space. Nice
pick up and smooth metal brakes.
Lasted through many long hauls across
the Nevada desert without the
transmission problems that my 2000 626

Bad fan belt and spark plugs, junky cd
player that quits after 70,000.
