This car is a decent blend of economy,
performace and luxury.
I bought mine used and abused. The
dealer was nice enough to clean it up,
but I found all of the little flaws since.
The seats need more lower back support.
The engine leaks (this engine is
notorious) oil and water (soon to be
fixed). A couple of minor electrical
glitches. I think it will need new
injectors at about 100,000 miles. 4th
speed only works with OD off. The
transmission is a tiny bit fast to
upshift with OD on.
There was a story on one of those "news"
shows about the passenger airbag
There was a recall on the automatic gear
Fairly quiet and peppy. Decent mileage.
Maintain your cars. Have it inspected by
a mechanic when you buy it (used).
