This car was ok, but had some issues and depreciated. Bought it in 02 for 7k and sold it in 05 for 1400 while in college. Issues were leaky weather stripping on the sun roof, would drip on me after rains. Gas gauge out (bad sending unit), a/c went out. Other than that major mechanical was fine and so was drivability.
I just bought this car Feb. 8, 2013, so I haven't had it long enough to report any major problems. It runs great, and was well taken care of by previous owner. It looks almost new, no rust and the engine is so quiet. It handles very well, and takes off quickly. Gas mileage isn't bad, so I'm not spending too much there. It's got all the options I could think of, so as long as I continue to take care of it, I'm hoping to get a lot of miles out of it.
All the power options, the black color, the fact that it has a 3.8 litre V6.
The tail lights have some condensation in them when it's rainy or damp. If it's warm and sunny, they seem to be clear.
Bought it last year it had over 225k in one month had to replace the engine due to blown gasket then water pump went out 4 months latter I had to replace both front hub assemblies tie rod the transmission has a defect the pressure control solenoid and torque converter clutch so when it gets hot every few days it shits hard the only time my engine light come on is due to the tranny shifting hard and early 4 gear 25 mph running at 800 rpms car acts like a manual had to replace the front sway bar snapped on both sides no biggie has a vacume leak in dash had to replace a hose for the evap the car won't start if its been hot just turns over with little firing idles at 2 to 400rpms then fix itself
HUD 3.8 leather heated seats lots of room in cab and trunk sun roof opens and closes kinda slow but works
The engine acts like there's no spark I have to bring a charger with 200ft of power cords can't trust shouting it off disconnected the air bags due to them being the recalled models don't want a explosion to happen if I crash replaced seat belts HUD needs a repair cold points struts are shot rides like a boat but I get a max of 46 mpg stock lots of cons with this car but its better then my 94 Monte shoved the rear shock tower into my trunk at 75 on the interstate Ive spent over 10k in repairs some I did my self others brought to a shop I only need to fix the tranny struts and a few recalled parts mite as well fix it I put this much in so far
Overall great car just a wallet eater great mpg
