Got this car as a hand me down from my mom, which she bought used. The engine is solid, however the transmission can be suspect at times. Currently have 147,000 miles on it, with only wear parts being replaced, as well as the speed sensor at 145,000. Mileage is not amazing, about 20-24mpg city highway. Great highway cruiser.
Great cruise control, doesnt downshift even when going up hills (I'm in WV, so we have lots of hills), and yet still maintains speed.
Add a fifth gear to the transmission, and change the ratios to allow for better off the line acceleration.
