I am not very happy with the whole transmission problem and I see a few of the customers on here are or had the same problem I am going through. My cousin told me about this problem AFTER I bought it. thinking about doing a rebuild but not sure if it would be worth it, what do you all think?


Best Features

I am not driving a boat and it is GREAT on gas.


Worst Features

Better transmission!

Review

I bought this car as a second car for fun, first off although it's nice and super solid, flaw the transmission, why overdrive transmission is when the transmission runs faster than the Engine. Seriously I don't understand why, but I suppose some like cruise control. The car is a 3.0 engine type it is strong so don't expect a 100 percent smooth ride. However, it's got kick mine is at 281,xxx and runs really well. The core components are simple, but useful and reliable. All and all you may need to replace the transmission a few times, but thats all you will likely have trouble with. That amount you save in maintenance will cover the tranny when it needs service overall solid!


Best Features

I do most of my own repairs and this car is very simple to work on, plus the parts are still easy to find 15 years later. Gas mileage is good for a full size sedan, it matches the Toyota Avalon, and this car is older. (note I also like this car because it's not an import so I have a basis)


Worst Features

Transmission cruise control or only make manuals of this model. More comfortable seats, but than again you bought the car as is hardly worth complaining about.

Review

I bought mine in 2000 from the Original owner, an older man who is my next door neighboor. I have tricked it out with NEW paint job, Limo window tint, Performance tires... The car gets AWESOME gas mileage, at 37 mpg after having it tuned up a few months ago, and has 120,000 miles on it now. I turn heads with it. ONLY Major repairs its needed has been a new radiator, and 2 fuel pumps... Someone STOLE the AC system out of it, and I recently had a NEW AC system put in. I love the car.


Best Features

Fun to drive, cheap to customize, ASTRONOMICAL gas mileage, and VERY reliable...


Worst Features

Wish the 94 came with a sunroof, and the ground effects later models had...

Review

I've owned it about 6 years. Runs great. After 100,000 miles had a small leak in the tranny and air. Had new brakes and fuel filter put on but other than that it rides great.


Best Features

Went to Tennessee for under $100. Back seats go down for hauling long things. Great gas mileage for a 6 cylinder. Bigger on the inside tan it looks on the outside.


Worst Features

Leather seats. Wish it was a convertible!
