Bought vehicle @50k repair trans pressure solenoid @75k change plugs, wires, hoses, battery, tires, front wheel bearings @100k replace water in headlamps @110k change coolant and trans fluid @125k ac leak @145k squirrel cage fan squeal @150k lower intake manifold and valve covers @160k replace front brakes every 25k and rear every 50k change oil every 6k change air filter every 12k car has been maintained pretty well, and has performed acceptable. I have enjoyed the car, but am getting tired of it. The car now has significant squeak and rattle and the exterior is showing signs of rust. I will drive the vehicle until the next transmission failure, which I anticipate at 200k.
Great leg room for tall drivers. Sporty exterior. Decent performance for natural aspirated V6. Excellent Bose stereo. comfortable seats. Ok fuel economy at 24avg combined at 160K miles. Easy to drive, easy to maintain. popular engine.
Should have fixed the gasket problem when first discovered. Not ten years later. Better cup holders. More robust transmission. Less cheap plastic, interior feels like it was engineered by playskool. Increase speed of power seat.
