I bought this car new and have only had reliability. I have only done routine maintenance. Never broken down or replaced parts other than brakes, tires, and muffler. I have over 155,000 miles. It still rides it did new. Great riding comfort and pickup. I get about 27 miles highway and 24 around town. If they were still made I would buy another!
Smoodrive, fun to drive,reliability,comfort,Stable control, great pickup, looks good,good gas mileage,good in snow. Never been stuck. I am a nurse and drive in the northeast in all kinds of weather.
Routine maintenance is expensive ie the serpentine belt.
