Review

We bought this car with 147K on it. We
had it checked out and were told it
was in great shape. It came to us with
a failed transfer case leaking a qt of
hydraulic oil every 100 miles. The
repair was nearly $2,000 and the part
very difficult to come by. Now the
front and rear engine seals are
leaking and the engine has to come
out. That will be another $2,000+. The
water pump and alternator failed
within days of each other. There have
been numerous hard start problems.
This is all within 4 months. The car
is fun to drive but I don't trust it
to go more than a month without
needing some hideously expensive
repair.

Review

This car was purchased with 23K
miles in 97. I initially was shocked
with some of the repairs i.e., motor
mounts relaced again after 5K.
Electrical flaw in the hatch $600. The
radiator neck broke twice along with
the fan and polybelt. Then at 76K the
4matic went out which was the
biggest hit of $2300. Other than
those items the car is a workhorse. I
plan to keep it for another four years
then sell it and buy a 2000CL500.

I should be able to afford one by
then.


Best Features

I use a wheelchair and the cargo space is great for carrying items. When you are sitting in the drivers seat it feels like any other sedan and not a soccer mom.


Worst Features

It would be nice to have more power.

Review

A great car for snow country use. Love the ability to bypass chain installers. Downside is the lower fuel mileage caused by the 4matic system.
