My 1995 GLE is very dependable. I get
approx 25/33 city/hwy. Lack of
independent rear suspension affects
handling. Handling is not as precise
as the competition from Honda and
Toyota. I upgraded to slightly larger
and highly rated 14 inch tires but wet
weather braking traction continues
to suffer. It is worse than in similar
sized cars. Excellent brakes in dry
weather. Poor pickup with A/C running
in spite of 5 speed tranny. Car is
very reliable and the stock alloys are
nice. Great highway cruiser - no
complaints there. Car has much better
pickup when using premium fuel.
Velour seats are excellent. Alloy
wheels. Easy to change spark plugs and
flush radiator. Excellent Reliability.
Interior ergonomics. Fuel economy.
Precise steering and good braking.
Small engine. Excellent fit and finish.
Need independent suspension and
torque, please. Civic and Corolla have
better handling, performance and fuel
economy. Car is light. Poor stereo.
Need a smoother 5 sp tranny. Exhaust
should last longer than 84K miles.
