I picked this black Acclaim 3.0 up new for 15 grand. I took my newborn son home in that car and he's almost 11 now.He wants to keep the car and learn how to drive on it! I have a new 2005 Ford and the kids want to ride "Blackie". I have 110,100 hard driven New york City miles on it. This car has never failed to start in all the starts I've had in ten+ years. I had a new tranny at 30,000 (under warranty), but I love this car. It's great in the snow and the A/C cranks in the summer. I have a tape deck but I haven't had a tape in eight years. Oh yeah, a new Maaco paint job 4 years ago when my son washed the car with a brillo pad. Hope it keeps going, beats a car payment!
RELIABILITY! Last car I had was a Toyota. Left me on the road 2 times and it had less than 40,000 miles on it!
