It is a great car, but stay away from anything from the mid-west or north-east. The fuel filler neck will rot away, the tank will leak (which requires the disassembly of the whole back end to remove and replace) Stay away from automatics not reliable . The doors will rot away with the brake lines. The exhaust system is among the most costly to replace of any mass-produced vehicle(2 catalytic converters a mid-pipe resonator, and an expensive muffler. Seals and timing belt, etc. is a must after 100,000. Stay away from the 2.5 unless it already had the head gasket replaced.Th The 2.2 is the champ. I have put over $4000 in this vehicle since i bought it last year. Not an economy fix
I live in Park City Utah, and drive this up mountains daily. It rules. Kick sideways, recover, down-shift, weeeeee.
Undercoat it. Make sure all tires are the same tread, and the pressure is the same, or you could end up replacing the transfer clutch. If you test drive one turn the wheel all the way and drive in circles left and right. If you feel binding, screeching, sketchiness, etc. walk away.
