It's an okay car, it gets me where to go. The electrical system gave out entirely. There's nothing working in this car no more. It juste starts and that's it. There has been an alternator replaced and it's a very costly car to maintain. It stinks in the electric department. What happened was the electric system shorted out, draining the battery in less than an hour, so we needed it disconnected. It's aroun 800 for parts and a big load of money to fix

Bought this car with 90,000 on it.It has a 3.1 v6. Very difficult to work on, plugs hard to get at, belt a nightmare to change. Interior parts all fell apart, door panels all warped,duck tape becomes your best friend. Check engine light on and off, no one could figure out the cause. Replaced the radiator, belt tensioner, struts, all brakes parts,O2 sensor ,turn signal switch, and more. Tranny gave out at 140,000 miles. Not worth fixing. Overall, I really liked the car when it ran good. Great in snow and ice and comfortable. I'm kinda sorry it is going to the bone yard.

Bought the car from my father in law
for my teenage son. It has honest to
Betsy 255,000 mile on the original
drivetrain. Solid mechanical care.
Replace the usual struts/shocks, brakes
etc, but otherwise a solid car.

This car is a real pain in the neck
ever since i bought it. I got it with
20000 miles and during the first year i
had to take it to dealer to have it
checked twice. It has also broken down
at least three times and has cost me a
lot of money. I can't wait to dump this
car. Recently I bought a second car, a
Honda now that is a well built
machine. My friends please stick with
