This is the first new car my wife or
myself have ever purchased. We got it
b/c, at the time, it had all the
features we wanted at only $20,500. It
is an ES (top trim) V6 with a 5 spd
trans. The car also has ABS, Traction
Control, Sunroof, fog lights, etc...
every option available.
We owned it for 2 yrs and over 50K
miles and have not had a problem except
for a broken cassette player. I
absolutely love this car, especially,
when I think about spending ~$10K less
for something comparible.
This car has it all. Comfortable
seating, leather interior, loaded V6
with manual trans, nice styling inside
and out. It even has a Bose 6 disc in-
dash CD changer. No need to funble in
the glove box or truck to change CDs.
More power. Though the V6 is very
capable with the 5 spd manual trans and
passing is not an issue at all on the
highway, I'm very much a power junky
and would always want more power. 220-
250HP would do me just fine.
