This car has been overall pretty decent. As far as most FWD cars from that era, it performs pretty well. Steering is a bit light though, making handling not too enjoyable. Stock suspension is complete trash - a lot of body roll and ridiculous ride height, even with SE setup. Exterior design is quite bland, especially the 95-96 models. The 97-99 look much better. Same with the interior, very bland but at least its simply laid out. The cabin seems cramped for some reason, partly because the ceiling isn't as high as most other cars I drive. For a 140k mile car, it's been pretty reliable. Hasn't ever left me on the side of the road, but stranded in my own driveway interestingly enough.
VQ30 is virtually bulletproof but not completely invincible against high mileage. Pretty decent performance for a mid-90's era V6. Pretty roomy save for headroom.
Bland exterior and interior design, 5-speed transmission needs work, stock suspension even SE needs major overhauling to be claimed as a "sport" trim. Gas mileage is a bit disappointing for a V6.
