Love this car (model/year) - bought in Dallas with 84K and it runs great with 171k now.
Just recently I found that during heavy traffic it slips a little.
It sort of goes with oil but got that fix.
I don't know anything about buying transmissions but where do you start to figure the cost?
Durability, Style, Cabin - great size!
Turning radius needed improvment on this model but it runs good.
