We have run through six other cars in the time we have owned this car. We took it to Tiawan with us when we lived there. Bullet Proof is all you need to say. Exterior still is fabulous with no rust and shines, the interior leather is tight and the seats seem to be in the same shape they were when new. We change the oil every 5k or so, have replaced muffler, and done brakes. several times. This car has never stranded us. My neighbor with a five year old 300 series car seems older and not as good quality. Our car is definitly better built. I wish they would start building them like this again. Everything works still.
All the tactile things like the seats, steering wheel placement, doors controls, seem so well thought out and then executed. Drives very solid, confidently on the highway, great visability which I can't say about our new Toyoata Sienna van.
The small outside mirrors, and no cup holders although the center console does double duty. Compared to the Sienna Van folding the rear seats down are a pain, but that's not much of a complaint.
