Bought this as a poor man's Aurora, the Intrigue, and was not disappointed. It has had outstanding reliability - the only major maintenance that was needed was new front disks and a transmission rebuild at 108,000 miles. The engine still smogs clean and gets 26 MPG at 125,000 miles. The interior and exterior have held up as well - from both a styling and performance perspective - with only a broken cupholder and a slight gap between a AC vent and the dashboard from shrinkage or a bad initial fit.
This has been a rock-solid reliable vehicle with good overall performance and handling. It fits 5 passengers in reasonable comfort due to good interior width.
