Bought as a 2nd car used w/30K miles on it. The styling and handling sold it. Drives like a sports car, but is a family sedan as well. All the bells and whistles, well ahead of its time. Brakes superbly balanced for no-dip panic stops, independent 4-wheel suspension, amazing performance. I have another car but can't stand to let this one go. Only major repair was replacement of the A/C and fan-clutch assembly, etc. Dealer repairs very expensive as are parts, but thankfully few have been required. Quite enough trunk space for family vacations. I only have 165,000+ miles on it now, but it still cranks immediately, gets 21 mpg but now burns a quart of oil per 1000 miles. Small tradeoff.

The 929 caught my eye in mid '92. Bought my first 929 in Dec '92. It was totalled in Feb '93 and replaced with 929 Premium March '93. This car was/is phenomenal. Body style and finish is incredible. Has better features than Lexus LS 400 of the same year (my husband had one). Vehicle has been low maintenance. Oil changes every 7.5K, repl radiator, water pump, air cond hoses in past 5 years. I have approx 155K miles after 14 years, 3 or 4 fender benders and it stills rides smoothly and looks awesome. I have never kept a car this long, but I can't let the 929 go! It's been good to me.

The car was a great design - very stylish, the interior is well laid out, and the rear wheel drive performance is adequate. It started out nice, but the build materials showed their quality over time and lots of pieces have broken. All four electric windows, the electric sunroof, numerous interior pieces, etc. If you buy a high mileage car expect it to go south quickly.
