We bought this car 3rd hand w/107000k and have been very happy with it. Minor repairs; egr valve, o2 sensor, fan belt, brakes. Have kept regular maintenance done every 5000k. Has some oil leaks, but found something to fix that up. Car has over 240000k at this point and we hope to get another 6 months before we replace it.
This car has the 3.1l v-6 and is an very good engine. Good mileage and power. Started losing some around 200000k. Still not too bad.
Engine is very hard to work on.From thermostate to spark plugs, it's a pain. It's just crammed in there... sideways.
