I got my 2000 LS in 2003 to replace the 1993 Grand Am that my parents gave me as a first car. For the first two years that I owned it I drove the socks off the thing but it easily took the abuse of a 17 year old guy and his friends. Once I got into college I took more interest in the car since I knew I needed a car that would last me into the beginning of my career. With a nice wash and wax, this car gets me compliments everywhere I go. Take care of this car and it will take care of you. On the highway I find the acceleration to be amazing between 60-80 and I can hang with most Euro cars and blow the socks off the other JP cars. Only prob is at 60,000 mi it's going to be $1100+ service
Looks! I have the dark green with tan interior and it shines up nice to almost black, looks great with mid-dark legal tints. Sound system was amazing until it failed me last week. Acceleration is amazing, I've the car from ages 17-22 so I've done my share of speeding and showing it off.
Better fuel economy, pass-thru trunk, rear windows that go all the way down, not 80%
